While on a tour of Sicily, had the opportunity to eat at this restaurant. Nice cozy interior, good food with fresh ingredients, prepared with care and beautifully presented. Waiter was friendly and helpful, although he was busy with many tables. Would recommend this restaurant.

We were looking for a fish restaurant and came across this. Outside was full of locals so we stopped.

Service is good but could be a bit better. Food is fresh and efficiently served. Cost of fish was very reasonable too. Dessert was plate-licking good. :)

Overall an enjoyable experience. Staff can do that litttle bit extra though.

To make it short: We had good food, but we didn´t enjoy it, as the waiter was so incredibly arrogant and little helpful, and made us feel very uncomfortable (maybe because we had two children with us?). I´ve been to Sicily more than 15 times and this was certainly one of the few unpleasant evenings.

We ended up in Porto Empedocle by coincidence, and passed this restaurant when doing some grocery shopping. The reservation we made at this moment was probably the best thing happening to us in this town. The food was so good that we had to return two nights later.

I've never eaten raw prawns before, so I tried them here, and they were just great. Virtually everything on their menu is the freshest you can get, and the second time round we did not look at the menu but ask the maitre d' for this recommendations. Great great great. Very tasty.

The wine list is not too long, but the wines are very well selected, and the price range is absolutely moderate. I cannot, as opposed to others who have written here, that I consider the restaurant pricey. Every cent is very well spent considering the high quality and very good service that you receive. If you want to eat cheap, go for a pizza. If you care for real Italian food, seek out places like this one.

I will most certainly return when in Porto Empedocle again.

A real Italian restaurant, not a simple tratoria. Generous antipasti, very tasty swordfish, excellent service, nice interior. Good value for money.
