We've been to Sicily for 3 times and this was the best restaurant experience of all. Amazing scenery, friendly staff and a preset menu full of delicious surprises. The antipasti set contains about 10 seafood dishes and the secondi about 5. It's a good idea to go when you're hungry, otherwise you'll have trouble handling it all. Desserts (mini cannoli and fruit) were good, plus the wine and water were free.

Excellent value for money: we were completely FULL and we ate only an "antipasto selection" for 20 euros each, local wine included (we ordered 2 liters).

The service could be a little more friendly, especially tourists-friendly.

If you are in region of Tarormina, then you must visit that restaurant, but don't forget to make reservation. Supper starts at 20:00.

Restaurant is located high on mountain at Forza d'Agro and has great view to Saint Alessio.

We ordered antipasti ans second dish.
First of all waiter serves welcome drink and bread.
Then comes Antipasti. We counted 12 plates with different dishes from fish, shrimps and mussels.
First came cold appetizers and when they started to serve hot dishes we thought that it's already main course, but it was still appetizer.
On the main course came another 5 plates with grilled tiger prawns, octopus and fish.

On desert they served grapes and delicious citrus cocktail and grapa, limonchello and ratafee.

If want to take something with you, just ask for "mangare pak".

Antipasti and grilled fish main course was only 25 eur per person.

Really enjoyed our lunch, so well presented, really good food and excellant value for money. Full marks to the staff for their patience with our very poor language skills.

I am fortunate that I have family on the Island so we get to visit places and restaurants that the normal tourist mayu not come across.

If you like fresh fish - then this is fish heaven!
The restaurant has real character,the name means " The Godfather" although its location is off the beaten track a little - on the road to Forza D'Agro.
But its worth the effort - its where the locals eat,including my family.
The choice is superb and the quality excellent.

We found the staff polite and helpful.

A visit to the town its self it well worth the effort, the views of the coastline at night time are spectacular.
