If you intend to take lunch somewhere in Mazzeo then that's the place to go. No "lost in translation" , no "grande coperta" , no waiting till taking the order...and the food is excelent. Signora Pina is a welcoming host , who can give you some advise also regarding your trip in Messina or around.

Cozy little place right on the seafront, very easily found. The "easy" also translates on service and general attitude: don't be afraid of being turned back if, on an early summer Sunday, you arrive for lunch after 2:30 PM... (we saw people being seated and served long after that). Impeccably fresh fish; ask for a selection of "antipasti" and you'll... More

excellent quality food with classic Sicilian service and atmosphere and sensible pricing.Our hostess was also able to help out when our phrasebook Italian couldnt cope. We stayed close by at the brilliant Da Concettina apartments so was really convenient as well. Well worth lots of visits!

Right infront of the sea. People speak english. I believe the restaurant owner even rents apartments ontop of the restaurant. I did not stay there but what a perfect location. overall great experiance. We all loved it. We stayed in a town 15 minutes away and for one week. 5 of those days we ate here.

The first (of many) time(s) I wandered into ARCO ROSSO in Letojani, Sicilia I was impressed just by the ambiance quasi rustic interior, but nicely lit. We chose a table at a window from where the smell of the ocean was a pre antipasto! Glancing at the menu, Giuseppina, one of the owners along with her sister carmela approached me... More
