What a charming place and what charming people. The few minor problem we encountered were solved swiftly and in a very positive way. The restaurant serves delicious food mostly from their own land. The breakfast is also something to write home about. We loved being here.

A really exceptional restaurant. The food is exquisite, prepared with care and a combination of classical dishes with added Sicilian flavours. The wine list is impressive and the staff are knowledgeable and very helpful.
