We found this restaurant returning back from out trip in Agrigento. Restaurant is on very nice place with great view on Valle dei Templi. Service was very friendly and helpfull. Food was excellent. As a first course we had beef carpacio with rocket and zucchini cake with pistachio and ricotta cream. Then we´ve got amouse bouche (fried potatoes) and it was also perfect. Second course we both had seabass - me with pistachio and my husband just on grill. Dessert was the best for the end. I had lemon sorbet, which was very refreshing and my husband had semifredo with almond and chocolate. When we had left, the card terminal didn´t work and we had just 50 EUR in cash. Staff was very friendly and apologize to us for bad connection with card terminal. Total bill was 64 EUR and we paid just 55 EUR. It was very nice and make very good impression to us.

We stumbled upon this restaurant just before dinner and saw the restaurant staff having their dinner. Knowing that we were waiting in the car for them to open, the staff hurriedly finished their dinner and waved to us at 7.30pm (opening time is usually 8pm) to let us in.

Despite knowing little english, he still recommends us (in italian) the best on his menu with a vivacious attitude. It was such a joy dining at this place.

As for our favourite dish, its the Fettuccine with prawns and pistachio. The pasta was infused with the taste of the prawn sauce and the pistachio added that crunchiness to the whole dish. Loved it.

The food was great, service excellent and friendly and a fantastic decor. Fresh ingredients. Because of the weather we couldn't sit outside but otherwise you will have a great view of the temples. Also the dessert tasted great. I would surely recommend this restaurant if you visit Agrigento. It is near the temples so not direct in the centre. They have their own parking which is always nice in Italy.

Upon first encounter the decor portrayed this is a serious restaurant: a modernist take on tradition. The food was great, all seasonal local specialties, and waiter had to apologetically explained they don't have an English menus because their menu changes every 15 days.

I repeat the food was great, fresh ingredients and everything was taken seriously. Staff was friendly and never overwhelming, with carefully select range of wine all from reputable local producers.

Panoramic view of valley of temples, friendly staff, good wine, very good food for value. Also there is also parking on site.

The food was excellent though rather too pricey and the service friendly.
The music was loathsome and too loud and the disco/nightclub atmosphere was cheesy, reducing one's much advertised view of the temples to little more than a holiday brochure. I'm afraid reports of the place have been vastly exaggerated. I repeat the food was excellent but food is more than about what is on the plate.
