The pasta is OK, the rest of the food is nothing special. The service is terrible. Long time waiting, at least it's not too expensive.

Went to this restaurant by a friend's reference and we can tell we succeeded. Dishes in general were pretty tasty, specially an started based on different vegetables. The only thing would be the wine's price. Bottles in menu are below 15€. We decided to follow...More

Trashy food and trashy place. Too much crap oil everywhere, nothing to do with Sicilian/Italian cuisine.

It's hard to imagine better pasta alla norma (melt-in-the-mouth aubergine/egg plant)! My wife had delicious spaghetti alle vongole (clams). As others have commented, the service wasn't the best but all was forgiven when we tasted the food! Great value too.

Book in advance, be patient, enjoy and always have desert. It's a great kitchen where a one-woman-kitchen tries really hard to keep things traditional and so don't expect speed but do expect quality time tested meals.

i don't mind waiting for good food, but this place is nothing special. It took an hour for my food to come out, my partners food came out 20 minutes later when I was finished. This would make sense if it was busy but there...More
