We loved this local little sicilian restaurant it is family run who don't speak much english which makes the night so much fun. The food is just lovely we dined on stuffed eggplant, swordfish carpaccio, tuna steaks all delicious and plentiful. The chef came out and chatted a little, it was just an excellent night of great food, great wine overlooking the little square that was still heaving at midnight. Excellent!!!
Those that didn't enjoy, calling 120 of us "bobos". On trip advisor "play the ball not the man"

Hi guys, sorry for being on the opposite side but this restaurant is really not extraordinary (i.e. 5/5 according to previous reviews seems exagerated). Although owners are really nice, I wouldn't say this is a traditional cuisine but rather dishes presented in a way the "bobos" like it (the restaurant we went to in Taormina ("Le quattro fontane") - although much more touristic place - was far better). Moreover, the square the restaurant is situated is really noisy, so if you look for a quiet place, just forget about it!

This is an excellent sicilian with a twist restaurant. The tuna roll is simply to die for. I had not tasted such a good piece of raw tuna since having sushi in tsukiji, Japan. My wife had the equally exquisite carpaccio. After having feasted on so much fish during the former 3 days we opted for a beef fillet with gorgonzola and veal with a cheese crust and a reduction of Nero d'avola. The combination of flavors were unforgettable. We had our two year old with us who was slightly sick and the care shown by the owners was unforgettable, this level of dedication was also shown in the service. One should not come to agrigento and skip a well deserved dinner at this gem of a restaurant.

Following a bad culinary start in Agrigento, we ended with a highlight by dining in this interesting restaurant. The service was good from beginning to end, with our hostess tending to our needs all the time. The food.....what can I say? It was just delicious. I agree with AlexiaG that there should be a six star category to make this place justice. The tuna "crudo" wrapping the aubergines and with Nero D'Avola dressing was a great starter. The Sardine Becaficco complemented the rest of the meal. Unfortunately, there was no space for dessert, which I am sure would have been just as good. The only drawback is that the terrace is too closed in and was rather hot.......but the service and the food made up for it.
