We ate very well at this restaurant two years ago. unfortunately the chef seems to have lost all interest in what he is serving up. Nothing tasted very much of anything.

Enjoyed two meals. The chef speaks English and came to discuss what we would like to eat. The waiter friendly and helpful. RIght opposite our B&B Crociferi.

Very pleasant find and only about three minutes walk from the Hotel Royal where we were staying. We arrived just as they were opening and the manager was very welcoming and helpful. We had all three courses and were not disappointed with our choice. The menu was extensive and needed some translation but the waiter was attentive without being in your face. The food was very well presented and on the nouveau cuisine type which was a pleasant surprise as it was in a very small street and appeared of the main drag.
We were given an aperitif at the start and the house wine was very good.
I would recommend this restaurant although it was not the cheapest we had experienced in the area. The restaurant welcomed us and service was good.

We found this restaurant in Lonely Planet and also a French couple in our hotel also mentioned that they also have it in their ''streetwalkers'' book so we decided to give a try.

Service is terrible; In the menu book names are only in Italian.You can figure out things for food, but wine section is really messy. Despite that we were thinking (trying to figure out what is what actually) the waiter was coming frequently to ask about if we are ready and we said that we are not we could hear his grunt with vexation.

I tried gnocchi mules and they were raw. They changed it without a problem. Second course was tuna with caramelized onions and it was raw again. Simply terrible.

You can eat for cheaper for the same quality anywhere else. Don't waste your precious money in this restaurant.

It is situated on a pretty ropey looking back street and you have to pass the much more alive and noisy pizza place in front of the church to get there... but it is worth a visit. Service is helpfull and friendly. Great wine list. Good choice of Sicilian specialities on the menu. Very good value.
