Food in this place is simply amazing, we go to Sicily twice a year but we never skip this restaurant. Very unique traditional Sicilian cuisine and very efficiently run restaurant. Very good and friendly service. My favorite dessert is mousse di ricotta!! Don't miss it!

The warm service makes the difference I this lovely restaurant on the edge of town. The food is very good, too - as is the wine, we simply followed the waiters suggestions.

Recommended by our hotel and well worth finding. Very good food - special dishes of the evening were excellent. Best Sicilian desert so far. Chef clearly thinks about his dishes and develops them to be more Sicilian. Staff were very friendly. Overall a great place.

Charming waitress, excellent service and delicious food. We shared fried ricotta with caponata and vegetable bruschetta followed by lamb and pork and finished off with almond semi-fredo and cannolo. I must say that has been our best meal in Sicily so far. Grazie mille!

Thank Nic0la2011
