We found this place unexpectedly after walking around sciacca for 30 mins looking for a place to eat (for some reason, most places were closed). The staff were very nice & cheerful & the food was scrumptious! We spent a week in sicily & this...restaurant came in at the top when comparing meals. Can't recommend this place enough if you are in Sciacca!More

Tipical reataurant in Sciacca with all the Sicilian classics The Mediterrenean antipasto suggested by the staff is definately to try. We had 4 diffrent pastas and I must say were all well presented and well ' mantecate ' Wine list could be improved. Service is...friendly and is nice to see the chef involved during serviceMore

The restaurant has a pleasant simple decore. All three people who served us were very friendly one spoke enough English to help us with the menu. We only order a salad, caponata and fresh fish which were all excellent, simple Sicilian cooking i.e. emphasis on...good ingredients. However they also gave us a basket af bread and a couple of tomato bruschetta before the meal arrived. House wine was local basic, drinkable and very cheap. We were the only non Italians eating there at the time, normally a good sign. If you are in the area well worth a try.More

Wonderful meal at this place and very popular with the locals.....always a good sign. Nicola the chef was there to greet people when he could but obviously being the chef not always possible. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and recommend a visit.

We were welcomed by a very friendly staff who gave us a great apertif to go with our drinks. We had the grilled squid and the basil ricotta garlic pasta, both of which were delicious, but the raviolini for dessert was mind-blowing. Make sure you...get it if they have it. Great place, friendly and funny chef.More
