“Perfect Italian welcome”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

The owner are from Sicily, the food was cooked by a lady chef from Sicily. So tasty and simple. Place is very cozy and by the the terrace is possible to enjoy the view of main square and the beach. On the main floor there is a bar and a shop with any kind of delicatesse from Italy.
We did try the fresh capoverdian prawns, pizzas and pasta where just gnammy!

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We ate at this restaurant twice during our week on Sal and had a great meal on both occasions. The restaurant is above the bar and deli on the roof of the building and you have to walk through the bar and up the stairs at the back to get to it - but it is worth it. The pizzas are cooked in front of you and authentically Italian, and the Sicillian pasta was so good it was ordered both nights. The house wine was lovely and the cakes/puddings looked good although we were too full on both nights to try them. They are open in the day for coffee and snacks and the open roof top location would make a a cool place with great views. It was nice to see the Italian owners training up the local staff and sevice was great, friendly and helpful.
