“A gem”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

What a find! Lovely short menu and excellent wines. Simona cooks in full view of the diners and goes out now and again to snip herbs from her window boxes as she prepares the dinner. Her husband is head-waiter/maître d', charming and a true gentleman. But the tastes! Everything is fresh and lovely and it was so lovely to get away from the staples of Sicily, or to get them with a twist. A must to try in Modica.

“Welcoming, modern, fresh and delicious”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We had a delicious Italian meal here tonight. The hosts were very welcoming despite our terrible Italian language skills. Lovely menu, including local dishes and reassuringly short in choice - everything freshly prepared in the kitchen which is fully open in the heart of the restaurant. The menu is on a blackboard, which probably means it changes every day.

Lovely combination of modern artwork and fresh rustica with sensible level of background music and subtle lighting makes for a really great atmosphere.

Highly recommended! Children obviously welcome. Most tables, like us, were groups of friends in their 30s. And they were Italians.

Best: - Busiate con cavolo arriminato - curly ribbon pasta and cauliflower.
