Good lunch with a swordfish sandwich. You have to take a Panino Pesce Spada! Also the bruschetta with tomato and oregano was delicious. Service was sometimes slow but that is a minor issue. Coperto only 1€ so very cheap compared to other restaurants.

Fresh and delicious sandwiches, good price, amazing view, friendly owner. I think it's the best place to eat an exciting sandwich in Scilla.

Ate here on our first night in Scilla. It is very popular and was often full. The swordfish sandwich was pretty good, service was good but it should be classed as more of a café than a restaurant. Ideal for a cheaper night out.

We stopped by this place to get a quick bite and try the swordfish sandwiches. They did not disappoint, the service was friendly and we easily got a table outside. The fries and sandwiches were delicious, and the sea view makes it even better!

Picked up an excellent panini last night consisting of swordfish, olives, lettuce, and mayo. This panini was their specialty and it was quite good. They also included a couple of mashed potato fried, breadcrumb encrusted pepperocini filled "tater tots" which were their house specialty. Very...More

We found this small panini-bar. The swordfish-panini is great. You find this place in the middle of the old town ... the place on the map of tripadvisor is not correct. Just walk into the town and you will find it.
