We have been to Cefalu on holiday twice now and always eat in this restaurant. On our most recent visit we had to wait for a table, whilst we were waiting we were treated to a complimentary glass of Prosecco and garlic pizza bread. We love it here they make a real fuss of our 4 year old daughter and will always make her a small potion of pasta and a scoop of her favourite chocolate ice cream. I loved my food so much we went back again so I could have the same -fritto misto - highly recommended, the antipasti buffet is also great. Wonderful atmosphere and friendly efficient service from all the waiters even when they are rushed off their feet.

It was an unexpectedly cold and windy last night of our week here, so rather than walk into the old town we decided to grab a bite near to our hotel on the seafront. Expected a tourist joint: instead a really authentic place full of locals enjoying good food and atmosphere. Had a great pizza and spatchock chicken ( just a quick meal as we were tired); loved seeing the waiters cheerfully weaving around the happy visiting bambini, and finally a very reasonable bill - a great place for a taste of real Sicily!

We have eaten here twice so far. You can expect consistently good food and a very warm welcome from the owner who has a terrific personality. My husband had the melon and prosciutto starter and spaghetti Bolognese and I had pasta with aubergines during my first visit and pasta with sardines during our second visit. The meals are simple, well presented and good value. The service is low key and fun no matter how busy they are and on Saturday night they were absolutely mobbed until past 10 p.m. Can't fault this seafront restaurant on the Lungomare.

Great location by the seafront. Both indoor and outdoor tables. Efficient and friendly service. Decent prices. Packed with foreign and Italian travellers which is no wonder since the food is pretty good. The grilled lamb chops were excellent, as was the grilled swordfish with lemons. Also the Sicilian speciality, pasta with sardines, pine nuts and raisins, was delicious. It is possible to get hearty pizzas as a take-away, if you feel like having a picnic on the beach.

Great restaurant that impressed us by offering several gluten free options including bread, pasta and cookies.
Very friendly, efficient service and reasonable prices e.g. 4 large greed lamb chops for €8.50.
Best location on the seafront. Highly recommendable
