Just been out on boat all morning snorkelling and needed a good feed. As ever wanted to get a true sense of Sicilian food and this place is fantastic.

Cous cous with fish and busiate pomodoro simply delicious primi. House vino bianco better than good. Stuffed squid (dish of the house) awesome

Wish we had time in our holiday to come here for an evening meal

Strongly recommend if you are in Bonagia

We cannot recommend this restaurant, and the lovely family who run it highly enough!
We set out on foot, to walk the 8 kms down to find it , from Valderice. We had been on a cycling holiday in Sicily, but had relinquished the bikes.
After a pleasant morning around the little port, and a swim off the rocks, we were getting worried that everywhere seemed so shut up. It was a Monday , early October.
But thankfully this oasis was open! We enjoyed delicious lobster spaghetti and good wine in a sunny courtyard, with the friendly Lulu, their dog.
And just when we were resigning ourselves to an 8 km uphill walk walk to our hotel.....yes, an offer of a lift!!
Thank you so much!
A great last day in the Sicilian countryside!

I don't think I've ever been in a restaurant where the staff cared quite as much as they did here. They were determined to make sure we had the best experience possible. Food was typical of the area: largely seafood and, of course, pasta. And delicious.

Very good food in a peaceful ambiance of a garden. Really family-owned and family-run restaurant. Difficult to find a place on friday - local people are aware of its qualities and gather there well before dinner time. Portions are big, fish and pasta are great!
