We ate here twice during our week on Pantelleria, both times everything was exceptional! Food, wine and the service were all excellent. Staff were really friendly and helpful, especially Marco who had some great wine recommendations. An absolute must when you're in this little corner of the world!

It's a beautiful sea view family run restaurant. The welcome was excellent, as we didn't book a table(highly recommended) we were invited to wait at the terrace with a glass of local wine on the house, what a start! The host was very kind, attentive and professional. The quality of the food was excellent, fresh and well presented. We did... More

Wonderful address, beautiful sea views, extremely nice owners and the food...wow, fantastic! Fresh, tasty, colorful, exquisite, from starters to dessert. The "baccio pantesco" is amazing. The best restaurant, by far, in Pantelleria. A must when in the island. Absolutely recommended.

The menu was suprisingly short and lacked inspiration, just a few the standard simple pantelleria dishes. Thich came as a disappoiment for a well regarded restaurant, and for which ihad high expectations. Some of the pasta dishes were excellent, but 70% of the dishes that my large table ordered were either totally unremarquable or outright sloppyly executed. Very unfortunate in... More

We had very lovely lunch here. Especially I liked the atmosphere, the young host who served us was very helpful and spoke good English. I enjoyed the food which was simple and still very elegant. Try their homemade "grape honey" with semifreddo as a dessert. You won't be disappointed. The lunch here was unforgetable and I want to thank the... More
