We came across the taverna when visiting Marzamemi and everything else was closed except for a cafe. We chose to sit inside, open to the kitchen, made for an entertaining lunch. The food was excellent, the Gambero marinato were delicious, raw prawns marinated in Orange and lime, with olive oil drizzled over, simple and amazing. Pasta with red mullet again, simple but delicious. Glass of local white wine and you have a perfect meal. Service was relaxed, you didn't feel hurried, but you needed to attract attention if you wanted something, but they were busy.

We went to this place on a recommendation of the owner of our B&B. The first impression was nice, but the waiter was unfriendly and showed no interest in his service. After we got annoyed by millions of flies on the terrace we changed to the inside room. Even inside this insects were everywhere. We ordered different starters followed by some fish main dishes. The food was not bad at all, but nothing special either. When we received the bill, we were quiet shocked. This place is not worth to pay so much money. So better stay off this place and look for a better deal !

If you're ever looking for the ultimate lunch on a breezy terrace with the sea at your feet .. look no further. Absolute worthwhile to drive for from Siracusa. Antipasti were excellent, prawns absolutely delicious. Main courses also very good though not spectacular

We loved the atmosphere of the piazza. The tables at the back have nice views over the sea.
I would recommend delicious the Spade agli aroma di sicilia.
We were lucky enough to be there for the 'Festival Cinema di Frontiera' so open air cinema and concerts all around us. Felt like a scene from Cinema Paradiso

You pay for sitting in the lovely square. The food itself is not worth the very high prices. While the swordfish (served in chunky steaks rather than thin slices) was outstanding and the pasta with squid ink was very good, nothing else rose above the mediocre. Tagliolini with prawns and courgettes was tasteless, tuna was unremarkable, and barbecued red mullet were small and devoid of flavour. Wines were good but pricey.
