We are interested in food and heard rumors this restaurant was very good. How wrong could it be? Bad service and below average food. Only good thing was the view from the seaside of the building. Barking dogs, unfriendly staff and absolutely not worth the visit

We were a big group of about 14 kids and adults. We choose the back patio with the view of the sea - we were sandwiched between other big party tables and felt a bit claustrophobic. The service was oddly lacking despite numerous servers and employees around. The dishes were uneven - some very good fish dishes others average. I... More

Lovely atmosphere, good customer service and good food. However, it is way too expensive for such little portions and simple dishes.

We found ourselves here by happy accident. Expected to find Marzamemi a sleepy fishing village but it turns out to be the goto place in this part of Sicily. There are a number of restaurants in the square but all the tables in the square were strangled empty. The reason being that they were full on the terrace at the... More

Lovely place to sit outdoors as the evening lights come on. Service was friendly and efficient.The raw marinated prawns were beautifully presented and very tasty as was the main course fish dish.We were very satisfied with our meal here and far preferred it to Campisi which is supposed to be the number one restaurant in Marzamemi.

My parents and I went to la Cialoma for dinner, we had a starter and a main course each. We are Sicilian, I have been living abroad for 15 years and we have been travelling extensively. This was probably the most overpriced dinner for a rather below average quality. We had two mix raw fish starters. We were brought 3... More

Went here on out first night in Marzamemi, primarily because it was very late and one of the only places that still looked open. Probably won't bother again. The first course pasta dishes with shrimps were okay but not fantastic. I has the prawns for main course which were so oily and weirdly flavoured that I couldn't eat them. Very... More

All the dishes are quite expensive and the choice is not vast. The locations is lovely, unfortunately the quality of the food is not as great.

Loved the location. Gorgeous square and fabulous sea view from the terrace. The food was fresh, very nice but not memorable, I thought it was very over priced. Most disappointing thing for me was the staff. They were very indifferent to the point of being rude and brought no pleasure to the dining experience.

Thank Lucy0411
