Our group was treated to a typical Sicilian lunch A large trattoria, but the many smaller rooms make it quite cosy We had a selection of food, including about 6 different entrees, and 2 pasta dishes, followed by sorbet, washed down with local wine Service was good, and the food excellent

This restaurant is as close to eating at someone's house as we could find. The ingredients are very fresh and everything is done with care and love. We came here 3 nights in a row and there was also something different on the menu. I wish they were open Monday and Tuesday so we could come back. Highly recommend.

Make sure you ask one of the friendly waiters to help you choose. Advanced booking needed as this place is extremely popular with the locals. Fantastic meal and wine guaranteed!

Really good food and reasonable prices, just manage your expectations for any sort of timely service. Reservations are taken, but not exactly honoured, though they do try to appease the waiting crowd with prosecco. Be prepared to wait to be seated, for drinks, to order, etc. They're extremely busy and the staff rush around. That said, the staff are very... More

The best traditional food we have had in Sicily! Simple, but great taste. Additionally, they serve exceptional beers from Italian micro breweries. Absolutely recommendable!
