“A must restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is cozy, and the staff is nice, friendly and informative. The owner, lover of old Sicilian recipes, serves unique, the result of extensive research by the freshest ingredients, the taste is amazing. Try their ice cream carrubba to close the meal.

“If you do one thing in Messina, eat here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

All I can say is WOW! We stumbled upon this restaurant after exploring the city for a few hours while we were in port. The menu has lots of seafood choices but we were informed that they weren't available yet because the boats hadn't come in yet (we were having lunch) so I'm sure what they were offering was incredibly fresh. The proprietor talked us through the menu and offered some suggestions and they were incredibly amazing. Definitely one of the best meals I've had.
