Was good but not outstanding!

My fiance (who actually proposed in the restaurant) e-mailed to get a table here and let the staff know that he would be proposing so could we have a nice table. The e-mail wasn't responded to so he called and booked a table and outlined that he had already sent an e-mail with his intentions at... read more

Not your typical Sicilian restaurant, from top-line service to unusual antipasti to a type of rockfish and preparation not seen elsewhere, and outstanding, maybe best fish we've ever had anywhere.

Pretentious 'upper class' restaurant. Most waiters uninterested and not friendly. Food of good quality but unnecessary complicating flavours: why put oranges on a delicious prawn carpaccio?

For us the best meal in Marsala. A chic and modern restaurant with great attention to detail with stylish crockery, glassware and cutlery. The menu is intriguing with many fish/seafood options. All plates are beautifully presented, and they taste as good as they look.

The attention to every detail at this restaurant was very impressive. The presentation and the taste of the food were amazing. The entire staff seemed like they cared about their guests' experience at the restaurant as opposed to most of the bored waiters we came across in Sicily. I highly recommend the pistachio encrusted swordfish which pleased even this meat... More

Our experience at SLO was so good the first time, we went back for a second round. Both times were really great eating experiences. Service was exceptional - our waiter telling us about all the "caught today" fish choices and the appropriate local wines to accompany them. The baked calamari was outstanding and the pasta with prawns and other assorted... More

The menu here is fish-based and you'll find a few unusual offerings which are sure to please. Choosing was difficult but everyone was pleased with what they ordered in the end. The presentation of the food was original and excellent with attention to detail. The fish was so tasty and fresh, with layers of flavours that were delicate and subtle.... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner here. The "not cooked not raw" appetizer was delicious and colorful, the pasta with swordfish and gambero rosso tasty and the white grillo wine from Sicily perfect with the food. Very popular so reserve! Staff is attentive and speaks English.

SLO is a rather posh modern Osteria, the kind of place you would go to to impress someone. Decor is nice and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately the food is only average: We were served rather bland pasta and completely overdone tuna. Prices are high for Sicily.

Excellent Meal, friendly staff- a little bit expensive for the area but truly a fine experience. Three of us had two courses each and were more than stuffed
