My husband and I decided to dine at this restaurant last week during our week's holiday on the island of Pantelleria. Our decision was based on appealing adverts and a recommendation from the agency we rented our dammuso from. On arriving at the restaurant, initial impressions were mixed, a friendly waitress accompanied us to one of the restaurant's garden patios,... More

Good fish menu. Best "caponata" in the island. They have also pizza but did not try. Fish menu is around 50 euros (2 courses)

Location in the "giardino pantesco" is romantic and cousy, gives also a sense of seclusion. The food is good, great tuna and ricciola, as well as the gelato of passito. Bill is not negligible but worth a try!

during vacation in Pantelleria I had dinner here with old time fiends so that the evening was very enjoyable. This is a good restaurant of high standard with good hospitality. The menu is wide with a preponderance of seafood dishes prepared in the local tradition but Aldo comprising non-seafood specialties and the one I tryed was coniglio (rabbit) alla pantesca.... More
