We stumbled upon it on our second day. We were amazed by the food and atmosphere, and prices that was affordable. The antipasti with a collection of meats and cheeses turned out to be a vacation defining experience, and every day would be compared to that. The other dishes were great too. Only our own curiosity had us visit other... More

We went here with high expectations and came away rather let down. The service was friendly but slow: we didn't get our main course until we'd been there over an hour and a quarter. We were told that one of the staff was in hospital so there was just one server. The appetisers were good, although the octopus was chewy,... More

From the moment we arrived we were given the most attentive service, the young front of house staff were a pleasure to talk to. Both my husband and myself chose simply grilled sea bream with grilled mixed vegetables, followed by tiramisu, which was heaven on a plate! I've never had better. The atmosphere and decor were relaxing with low level... More

First off, the service was amazing. We were the only people in the restaurant, and the two servers as well as the owner were talkative, friendly and a pleasure. We chatted for quite some time and we couldn't ask for better company. The ambiance was romantic (it was my husband's birthday), and the whole presentation was top notch. However, one... More

Stumbled across this place near our hotel! Pleasantly surprised by delicious food, good service and nice atmosphere! Can't go wrong with the fish of the day... It's grilled to perfection. Nice wine selection!

Pleasant evening spent dining here. Seating outside and inside and there is also an upper level. Smarter style restaurant with a good decor, quality furniture, linen, glass wear, china etc, well lit, not harsh like a lot of restaurants in Sicily. Nicely presented food with generous portions served by amicable 'cheeky chappie' young waiters. Regular flow of customers, mainly tourists,... More

We booked this in advance from the UK and were delighted to find this wonderful restaurant. The staff were great and offered GF alternatives when requested. The set menu included so many courses that we had to bring some of the food away with us.
