We visited Marpessa twice and on both occasions we were impressed with the quality of the food. Wonderful ceviche starter followed by swordfish with hazelnuts and an amazing dish with pork fillets. Great wine, lovely setting and great service. It is off the main track...More

In a small and quiet street in the center of Noto, waitress were very nice, professional, and speak fluently English. Food was fresh and good. The only small negative point: uncomfortable garden chairs to sit.
