The restaurant is situated in the center of the town, in a rather imposant and romantic surrounding. It offers very delicious seafood, excellent service. Tasty desserts. I recommend for all gourmands.

Interesting building, a large sitting area in the center, great for a drink, and a resturante to one side. Very nice and helpful staff. Had a very good meal here, pizza , but lots of other choices. Also a shop selling local produce . Bought some super olive oil.

Really look forward to trying the menu another time. What a brilliant location - with its tall ceilings and fringe local wine and oils counters around the outside. Quite close to the centre also.

We had a days menu (1x fish and 1 x meat), including wine, for a very reasonable price. Mr. Salvo explained the dishes and recommended a lovely desert (see pictures) We had a great time.

we were looking to have a nice dinner in Ispica and were unsure if/where to go. There are a lot of cafes and pizzerias, and so were pleasantly surprised when we came upon this establishment.
