“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Avoid it. Worst pasta ai ricci in my life, random antipasti, croudy and noisy atmosphere, very high prices. No locals, bad sign: some friends advised me, sorry they were right.

“One of the best fish restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

I consider Il Sakalleo restaurant as the best fish restaurant in Scoglitti. The owner, Sig. Pascuale Ferrara and his daughter Giada are very friendly. The place is impeccably clean and the food superb.

“Good sea food in a simple and traditional ambiency.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This trypical restaurant, located at the first floor, is proposing a variety of nice and always fresh sea-food. Basically they go for menu, but you are free to choose whatever you like.
Try the raw fish entries, absolutely unforgettable. Good choice of sicilian (and not only) wines served in a friendly and warm atmosphere. This is not the cheapest restaurant in the area, but it is definitely recommendable. Better to book your table in advance, especially during the high season.

“Fish of the day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We have been invited by sicilian friends to eat there. It is a fixed menu restaurant. You cannot choose, you eat what they find in the fish market that morning. It's a very good kitchen, good wine, for the kids we ordered pasta. tha chief's daughter speaks french. It's a good value for money. not cheap (about 40 euro per adult), but, in France, for the same meal, we would have paied the double.
