Nice restaurant for dinner. Very neat oriented although there was a vegetarian set menu with excellent antipasto and two courses. Service was excellent. Our Italian is dreadful but the lovely waitress translated for us. Very friendly.

Came here a few nights ago for our first meal in Sicily. The outdoor dining provided a lovely atmosphere - tables out in a pedestrianised street and a band playing. However the food wasn't amazing. Having said that it was a good value meal and...More
