Food average, service super slow... 45 mn to serve a pasta dish to kids
Certainly not the best address in Acireale

We went there today. Got the antipasto dish, it was mediocre, some dishes were really good and some felt like they had been sitting out there. We ordered the linguine con mare and the grilled swordfish, both were excellent. The complimentary lemonade is amazing, just the right amount of sugar and fizziness. We got the house white wine, great. We had Sicilian cassata and it was delicious.they gave us free liquor and biscotti. It was so tasty that I asked if I could take the few that were left on our plate, they were kind enough to wrap some for me. best caffe so far, it's coffee borbone, will be buying it to take home.
Ambiance, Not the best, the place is old but the view of the church if you're sitting facing it, makes up for the bland inside. Overall, a good experience with good food. Recommend.

Wonderful food at very good prices. Amazing selection of very original and super-tasty fish starters. Nice first course (gave in after that!). Good wine at very affordable price. Very friendly host and staff. Super-recommended. Very good prices too.

Great place, great service, unique location and very good value. Might seem like a tourist trap because of its location, but it is not.
The food was good and plenty, especially the antipasti which seem to have no end. We went for dinner, four people, had two bottles of their local Murgo rose, anitpasti, pasta, deserts, and it was barely 100 euros.
Highly recommended.
