Honestly, not very good, either ambience, food quality or presentation. However, staff were friendly and tried hard to please.

Go to Augusta to eat at this trattoria!!! We descovered this place accidentally by driving through Augusta on a rainy day. The trattoria is small but absolutely lovely and originally furnished and the owner is amazing- friendly, helpful and professional!
But the food: simple and pure sicilian flavours - the pasta we took (with tuna, mint and many more ingredients) was so wonderful and the dessert as well!!

Antonio welcomes you with a big smile, taking the time to explain each dish.
The Fish Platter is out of this world. The pastas so different and perfectly cooked.
Great service. Including the hard boiled egg at the beginning which opens the appetite.
Not to be missed.

The Florentine accent of the owner is the first surprise of this small and fascinating place. The interior decoration is simple but unforgettable, old wooden doors with a variety of straw hats decorating the walls and much more. You are under a spell the moment you get in, the food is tasty and very well prepared and presented, tradition mixed with innovation and lots of choice also for vegetarians. The old tradition ( French origin may be) of starting a meal with an hard boiled egg is here revived and a refreshing change after the "aperitif" mania prevailing in Italy.

If you want to experience a fantastic Sicilian dining experience, visit La Mattonella.
Bruno is the most wonderful host you will come across - so friendly and welcoming and very accommodating for the two of us who are vegetarians. And the Chef is great - his food fantastic.
The little restaurant feels like you've stepped into another world. It's worth going off the main track to visit Augusta and to enjoy the experience of La Mattonella and Bruno's hospitality.
