Well having been before this time we where disappointed with the food and with service. Too quick to take our plates. Food was not good for the price. It looks out on the marine but it's the surrounding areas are dirty.

After having spent 10 days in Sicily I would rank this place as an absolute bottom of all the places we ate at. Major TURIST TRAP ie factory like service and food. Ordered two pasta dishes. Waited 45min for food to come. Saw plenty of people around having had to wait equally long and dissatisfied with food once it actually arrived. Salmon tagliatelle was smoked, old tasting salmon,oily with overcooked pasta and salty. Mussel pasta was all time absolute worst. Terrible, salty tomato sause tasted nothing like sea food mixed with defrosred bag mussels( taken out of shells!) Big no no and an obvious sign of lack of quality! Mamma mia! Horrendous food, we left with disgust. Please avoid this place.

We were the first people in and we had been trying to find a restaurant to have an earylish meal on a wet evening! The waiter was fine and the service was good. The pizzas were filling so we didn't have anything else. Local people seemed to use it which is usually a good sign.

We tried this restaurant, tipped by our "neighbours" in our hotel. We were seated on the terras with view on the sea and lights of the various villages along the coast. There were lots of Italian guests but it was not crowdy. We ordered a starter to share, which was not so big a plate. For the maincourse I choose the fresh pasta with shrimps, who where just fished out of the sea, very fresh and abundant!! My husband choose meat (Tagliata) with fries and salad, also tasty and abundant like the pasta with basil, choosen by our son. We left without desert as we were quite full. Good value for your money....

We arrived at the restaurant and even though we were the only customers we were initially ignored-this should have set off alarm bells but we were too impressed by the location.
We distinctly felt that the head waiter would rather be anywhere else than serving us.He was unwilling to help us with the menu so that my husband ended up ordering a dish for two which was so large he had to cancel the next dish.He was then served his main course and he finished this before mine was brought out.I had only ordered a pizza which I think had been forgotten,and when it arrived it was burnt! There was no concern or apology from the head waiter and no further interest in us except to take our money.Needless to say,we did not leave a tip.I watched closely to see how they treated other customers and they showed the same indifference with everyone.
