This restaurant was recommended by our Air BnB host, and it is great! We had a nice table looking up at Castlemola. The fish is fresh and the pasta is wonderful. Additionally, the host was very friendly and service excellent.

Food is very average with high rating. The restaraunt managers aren't children friendly. Waiters are very nice. If you want better place, very near 2 mins from there on Via Cappuccini : Etna or Tiramisu restaurants!More
