I really liked the place! the pizza is ever so nice and they serve also dishes which are not on the menu e.g. a small tomato salad.

I enjoyed very much the grilled squid and the lovely atmosphere of the restaurant situated in the ancient boat cellars renovated to a charming and cooling location. Wines were delicious and service was pleasant and attentive. Price was also very reasonable for the fresh quality of the menu!! Enjoy!

We found this place by chance. It was very otantic italian restaurant. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Seafood soup was the best I've ever had. Everyone should try, you are using mussels as spoon. We tried risotto and spaghetti with seafood which were both excellent. We also tried sicilian tastes in small plates and enjoyed very much.

We came here for a quick lunch. I had the traditional pasta 'ca muddica (with toasted breadcrumbs and anchovies) and my friend had fish which she said was fresh. Our waitress wasn't very friendly but we weren't in there that long for it to be a problem. In the summer they apparently have a lovely roof top terrace but, as... More

This place looks like it could be a little touristy, but the cart of fresh fish on ice at the entrance of the dining room hints at the quality of what you'll enjoy. I had a pasta, followed by swordfish involtini, and my wife had an antipasto and a pasta. All were well prepared and delicious. The service was friendly,... More

Great food, great service; felt like a very local place, but we were treated not as strangers, but people they were glad to have in the place. Interesting atmosphere in the old city walls while some patrons watched soccer on the big screen. The antipasto, pasta and seafood were fantastic, at a very reasonable price!

I have had a dinner with my colleagues and all of us ( 30) agreed that the dinner in this restaurant had been very poor and disappointing. It is quite difficoult to eat bad in Sicily and unfortunatly we managed to find a place where the service, the quality of the food ( either fish and meet) were bad, the... More
