Just a great deal of very average food. We had the mixed fried fish and seafood - only two of us but we got enough food for about six people. Quantity not quality. Service was OK, friendly. Nothing special.

Mixed reviews so it seems. We went there in mid September 2016. The restaurant was fully booked but they found a table. The antipasti seven dishes were delicious and varied. The barbecued swordfish was fine. A very good experience!

An excellent discovery. Food is excellent and abundant. Fresh fish guaranteed as you see fishermen unloading crates of freshly caught fish right in front of your eyes.Will definitely return and highly recommend it to others visiting the picturesque Porto di Portopalo.
