We didn't know where we would eat dinner our last night in Sicily, so we went for a walk. This place looked so inviting we decided to stop in. The food is excellent. The staff is friendly and service is quick. The bruschetta is wonderful!...More

We ate in this roadside restaurant on two occasions. The food was quite nice, though not exceptional. The staff were very pleasant but I felt that they were very overstretched during the two lunches that we had there. It was very difficult to get their...More

First night in town and we went here on the strength of the reviews, which were the best on this strip of beach. Pleasant food but not outstanding, pleasant but slow service. Nice setting, baskets of flowers decorating the seating area and facing the sea.
