“Definitely, the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

It was my first day in Sicily, the weather was gorgeous and I was wandering the streets admiring all around me. I had reached "Lungo del Mare" and in the distance i could see the castle Maniace. Although I was neither hungry nor thirsty, I've decided to stop at this little terrace, with such a beautiful view. And then.... I saw written on the blackboard at the entrance SEAFOOD SALAD. I could not resist and ordered. Best decision of the day, not to mention of the holiday. An optical pleasure (a glimpse of Italian design) and the taste... divine!. Of course at that salad, nothing fit better than a glass of white wine, which was great. In fact, everything was great, the food, the service, the music (although it was not Italian, it was so right), and the view.
Certainly, if i go back to Sicily, I will return to that wonderful corner.
Congratulations to the staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Best CIBO (food) in Italy ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

A unique experience. With the nicest view in Ortigia, you can enjoy of a great fusion cuisine while taste the best regional wines. The salads are simply amazing, mixing fresh fruits, veggies and local products. I ate the best risotto Nero ever!!! And to close the special lunch, the desserts are very good always enhancing the local flavors.
Staff: EXCELLENT.
Since I have been in Italy (7 months ago, Rome), this is the best restaurant I found.

“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were drawn to this restaurant by the outdoor terrace and sea view. Looks more like a cafe but don't be deceived. The partners are young enthusiastic Sicilians who are keen to provide an authentic but slightly different version of local food. Gipi our "guide" to what was on offer supplied us with their delicious house wine accompanied by what turned out to be complimentary nibbles. Calling the next day we were offered a very refreshing frozen lemonade with Italian style jelly, just right for the hot weather and relaxing atmosphere experienced. Having already been impressed we decided to book dinner for 7.30, we are pleased we did, the meal was outstanding, again Gipi on hand to explain everything. The bill for both of us 75 Euro for an excellent meal and wine. Turns out the person producing the food trained under a Michelin star chef and it shows, highly recommended.

“We came back for more..!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We returned the day after, because we had such good food the first lunch! Great spot on the sea side, terrace in the sun, nice guys taking our orders and: really good food! We were surprised! Real Italian cuisine but in a trendy way, just a bit out of the ordinary which was really appealing to us. Deconstructed delicious cheesecake presented in a jar, for example. Try the risottos!

We feel a bit embarrassed to go there tomorrow for the third time in a row for lunch...
