The food here was absolutely delicious! The seafood was so fresh and tasy. Even the pasta dishes and pizza tasted authentic---thanks to the Sicilian chef and owner. The chocolate balls and creme brulee are to die for! The food was so good that I ate there 3 times in one week!

When you go to Santa Maria, you usually go for fresh fish. But after a couple of days, you need something else. Pizza here is very good and not expensive at all. The service is good and the staff is nice. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

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!

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.
