We took the Fish menue which was an excellent choice. The antipasto is quite different to the ones you get in other places. Both the primo and the secondo piatto are fantastic too. To seat outside is beautiful and quiet. The only negative aspect was the waitress - a smile would have been a smile!!!!! But you come here because... More

We ate here on a Monday middle of October and we chose to eat the fish tourist menu. Fantastic selection of pasta and fish dishes , half litre of red wine and a litre of water for only €25 per head. Meat menu was €20. Service , food and setting all excellent. Glad we stumbled on it.

Nice experience. Food is excellent and the location is great if your are looking for something more reserved. Although if you don't speak italian it would be a problem. In overall, that's the best place in downtown.

Delicious fish dishes and friendly, helpful service in a pleasant location in the heart of Porto Empedocle (Vigata). The "Montalbano starter" was particularly good.

We chose this place because it was one of the only open in Porto Empedocle. And we were positively surprised. Good food, nice service and further we linked to literature because of its relation to Andrea Camilleri and Commissario Montalbano. A dinner which ended up much better than we initially thought.

Very fresh fish, very nicely done, reasonable local wine, and fair prices. Met a local couple that has celebrated their anniversary there for several years. Great local food.
