We were the first customers of the new season, for lunch and it was the best cooking we had in Sicily. The food is typically Sicilian and we had had most of the dishes before but they tasted so much better here. Welcome and service was also good but we were the only customers as Sicily is really quiet in... More

The restaurant is a bit hidden, you can't really see from far that it's a restaurant. Which is one of things I like. It doesn't have photos of food all over the place. It's very stylish and modest. The place is air conditioned and The atmosphere is very pleasant. Very clean. It's run by a couple. The chef Josephine is... More

I visited this restaurant with my family recently. My experience was pretty terrible. With almost empty restaurant we had to wait long time for waiter. Preparing simple pasta took them almost 1 hour - and another hour for second course. 1 person barely could understand english. No apology, just resentful waiter, very impolite. I would rather recommend try to find... More

We had a fish based meal with a starter made up of typical fish specialities. The main dish was the best couscous I have ever tasted, cooked in fish stew. Owner is friendly and staff are very professional. The bathroom was impeccably clean.

The set menu is great value at €20, though it would be nice to have a little more choice - we were limited to 2 or 3 options for primi and secondi, which didn't leave a lot of room to pick and choose if you like sharing (which we certainly do!. Everything we had was pretty good though, particularly the... More

We booked the low cost buffet offer expecting something quite simple. No we had a fantastic choice of local vegetarian dishes plus mussels. We had a second course of lovely lamb chops. Great presentation as well. The service is very good, very smart staff with some French and English spoken, the white and red house wine very good as well.... More

This was one our best dinners in Sicily. The dishes were carefully prepared, well balanced flavors, with fresh ingredients. We had pasta with pesto Trapanese (sp), an incredible seafood pasta, lamb chops, and insalata caprese. All were delicious. The prices were reasonable, ambiance attractive, and the service good. My wife and I wish we could have returned to try some... More

After having a hard time finding this restaurant, it ended up to be worth the trouble. We had a delicious meal from start to finish. The best were the mussels and the pasta dishes. The ambiance is very nice too.
