“Oh no”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I feel the place is a victim of its own success. They simply can not cope with the amount of people they attract and a good share of the people gets lousy service and dull food. Others might have a better experience but chances are high you are in the first group. 2 couples left while we were there, as they got no service and we were close to leaving too.

We waited 30+ minutes to get a table. The tables are nice with a view. Then it took forever to get a menu, bread and water. Ordering was OK, but again it took forever to get food. The antipasti were nice. As a main course we all choose pasta (3 different types). They all 3 were terrible. Horrible. Uneatable.

“Unpretentious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Great meal at a very reasonable price. The swordfish was exceptional as well as the pastas and the orange salad. We loved it all...no glitz just good typical food by a very nice family. House wine was perfect as well.

“Good choice for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had lunch at this restaurant on 25th April 2013. This is a national holiday in Sicily so not much else was open.
The food was very good and the service was fine.
We sat outside on the terrace and were treated to a view over the roof tops of Agrigento.
Would certainly recommend this place for lunch.

“Great value with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

How lucky we were to be looking at the Michelin guide and standing right in front of this restaurant. It was early but still a few tables on the terrace were already seated so we joined in. By the time we left both inside and out were full. The specials looked appealing and the tiger shrimp were like lobsters. We had a selection on contorni to start (the frito misto with stuffed olives, fried cheese etc) is good. Spaghetti pomodoro was good but I was really excited to try the pasta sarde (with sardines, pine nuts, and lots of good stuff like wild fennel). It was delicious. A half liter of sfuso (house wine) is 3.50 euros. A nice dinner with pleasant surroundings and service for 40 euros! The Michelin guide warns to check the bill. No problems and completely accurate to the last detail. Would recommend for simple and reliable dining.

“3 courses of delicious fresh seafood - loved it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by a local when we said we loved Sicilian seafood......we weren't disappointed! Mussel soup to start was so good. The primary plate of mixed seafood pasta was so simple and yet so tasty.....so typically Sicilian. The bread and local white wine were also good and the mixed salad could have been a main course by itself! Very nice atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. We timed it perfectly because the restaurant completely filled up within 30 mins of our arrival. Great value for money - a fine dining experience and very affordable prices!
