Everything else is taken care of on the top level. Food is fresh and tasty and staff keeps bringing more and more so... More

I've visited this place countless time and keep on going back when I visit Sicily. Food always good, fresh and full of flavour. Nice wine and characteristic and friendly service.

I'm a bit late with this review. I was actually there June 2013. However, to date, I have to say that this sea front restaurant served some of the tastiest seafood dishes that I've ever eaten.

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. A fish-lover's dream! Almost worth the trip to Sicily just to eat here. The Fish is so fresh and delicious that it simply has to be tasted to be believed. Course after course of fishy deliciousness. Excellent value and superb service. Be sure to arrive hungry as the food just keeps coming!! Perfetto!!

The staff are all lovely and friendly. The food is exquisite, every dish I have eaten here has been delicious. The fish is all fresh and you can definitely tell this. I would recommend this restaurant to any one who loves sea food, it is the BEST sea food I have ever had. Amazing.

You will be completely satisfied with a great variety of typical Sicilian fish dishes starting from a wide range of appetisers, 3 pasta or risotto dishes from the chef and finally your choice from the catch of the day. You will be overwhelmed of great food in this typical seafood restaurant located in front of the tiny little fisherman's harbour... More
