“The amazing Zurro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Zurro for sure it's not an economic restaurant but after the meal I am sure nobody can leave without a big smile on his face. The place is just in front of the sea but there are some table a bit more inside, if you call early you can choose the best one for you. All the pasta dish are fresh made and even for a sicilian like me there I appreciate novel recipes. The "Black stone pasta " filled with Cernia and the "Black tagliatelle allo scoglio" are simply the best I ever taste. I suggest also to leave space for a dessert cause there are so many, tiramisu over the top.
The other aspect that make Zurro a peculiar experience is the chef... Very eccentric man, very stylish and colorful dressed, always. He use to take the order form the table and listen to him describing his dished is the only way to understand the magical of the recipes.

“I haven't eaten there!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

We have chosen to eat at Zurro as many locals have recommended that restaurant. After sweating our way to that restaurant ( it was quite distant from our b&b) we managed to arrive there few minutes before 2 pm. Unfortunately, even though there were a few people still eating there we got informed that it was too late and that the kitchen had already been closed. It was June and the beginning of the season but still 2pm is not that late to have lunch, especially if you are a tourist and don't know the local habits. Perhaps it wasn't a bad thing after all as we saw the menu outside and the prices seemed to be a bit too high ( the coperto only was 3€ per person)

“Splashing out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Probably the most expensive meal on a three week holiday. However, the service was great and the chef is a bit eccentric so makes for a unique experience. Atmosphere is average and the food was very good.
