This is a restaurant that is a bit hard to find, but it's worth it! We were very well taken care of, the food was fantastic as well as the wine suggestions. We started to speak to the couple next to our table and the staff noticed and treated us as a group of people after a while, not as... More

As others have said, it took a while to find it but it was worth the effort. Against a wonderful, mellow jazz soundtrack, we were served delicious food by staff that were clearly passionate about the food too. The menu was typically Sicilian, but it was one of the best meals we had whilst we were in Sicily. Really excellent... More

We were greeted at the door, escorted to our table and the waiter explained the daily menu. The choices depend on what is available in the markets that day. The sardines were delicious. Every meal was exceptional in taste and quantity. The staff were very informative and friendly - wonderful atmosphere. We would definitely not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

This little restaurant , is tucked away up a narrow alley. It took some finding, it was worth the effort. The owner/manager explains the various dishes, all the time reassuring one that the ingredients are the freshest and most local obtainable. The stuffed sardines were the best that we've ever tasted.

The food here was very good and we would certainly do it again. The only complaint would be it seemed a bit slow for service. The food was worth the wait though :-)

Had to dine on my own so decided to try Dioniso. What a good decision. A delightful cosy restaurant with friendly welcoming staff but the best part was the food. A little pricey but worth it for the exquisite flavours. I started with Parmigiana which was divine; the best I've ever had. I followed this with penne served with a... More

Had a light dinner here. Just a starter as l so wanted to have dessert. I was intrigued by the proposal of the day that was listed on the menu. This was a tasty dish of couscous with small pieces of swordfish, carrot and parsley. Loved the orange and cinnamon ricotta mousse. So creamy and smooth. Yum,
