Extremely kind service. Food just regular which seems to be the rule in Pantelleria. Nothing else to add

The place serves outstanding food. We have been twice during our stay in Pantelleria. The ravioli with ricotta and mint is a wonderful combination. I don't eat fish and hence had it twice with tomatoes. It was delicately balanced. The fish served to other guests in our party was apparently very tasty. The desserts are also very innovative. The service... More

Had dinner here the two of us. Did not have a reservation but we were very much welcomed by Simone who speaks English very well. Started with Cremant de Loire accompanied with a highly tasteful antipasto (my girl had fried alice with a great sauce and I had a couscous salad). Then I had homemade ravioli with ricotta, coffee and... More

The place is off the main road right at the coast between Gadir and the famous Arco dell'Elefante. Not an easy access and also a relatively limited menu card. The view cannot offset the limited availability of food. Good Wines though.

A very nice location not far from the shore in Gadir area with a great terrace. Service is quick (perhaps too much) and attentive while keeping a very casual and friendly attitude. The wine selection is wide and the quality of food rather good, even if sometimes a tad too salty.

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
