Went here on advice of a local guy at the lido. Very pleasantly surprised. Full of locals and excellent food and service at a very good price. Probably the best meal I have had in Sicily so far. Highly recommended.

we came here on a a warm Sunday evening, the staff made us feeling at home very quickly. The dishes respect the tradition and the fish is always fresh.Nothing too flamboyant, one of those places where you would go in order to avoid surprises.
