Don't let the entrance fool you. it is on a quiet busy street, but the tables are on the backside and really on the sea shore. Antipasti were excellent, the pasta also and the fish served as main course was fresh and tasty. the personnel was friendly, the price justified. We had no complaints at all and were really happpy.mwarmly... More

Al Boccone is a family run restaurant serving top quality food. The owner is always around, making sure everything is running smoothly and he is always friendly and professional. We go there every time we're in Marzamemi (once or twice a year) and the food and service are always exceptional. Tip: the Linguine Gattopardo and the stuffed squid are to... More

Food was really nice, although rather pricy compared to other places i have been to in sicily, but sometimes the view is what you pay for, and this was totally worth it. Wine, fish and and breeze in front of a crystalline see. Spaghetti alla bottarga e pistache it is a must, as is the tartare di tonno e gamberetti... More

The restaurant is very close to the old center of the village. It seems very little from the outside but it has a very big external garden with a very nice view on the sea. Food is very delicious and prices are notmal for a so nice touristic place. Trust it as it really worths! We ordered the 'Trinacria' appetitizer,... More

Although service can be a bit pushy and chaotic at times, this is a great place. Seating outside near the water offers stunning views and dishes are top quality. Definitely try the calamari al siciliana, stuffed calamari topped with an intense sauce. Dont try the house wine, it's poor.

it was the worst eating experience in Sicily and one of the worst in my life! Already while we were ordering the owner started with his suggestions like "do you want your tuna as steak or as tagliata - the later one is better, do you want to add some tomatoes to your salad" etc - obviously one is not...

Anti pasta was great and tried a local favourite with tuna eggs, pasta and nuts - tastes better than it sounds. What could be better than to have sunshine, dine at waters edge. Staff was great and helpful, service was excellent.

They don't have a lot of the things listed in the menu and very limited options. Frozen and previously prepared appetizer. No flavor and simply not fresh! Try to sell you the most expensive things on the menu. Lots of options in Marzamemi, this is simply not good!

We were looking for a place to eat and we were just invited in by a nice young lady. We were 2 adults and 3 kids and the manager suggested a couple of dishes, which were just pasta dishes with different sauces etc... No idea why first course dishes are Euro 16 and same exact dish taken as main course... More
