Great place, just love it! The food is so delicious - I recommend calamari and pasta. It's a family restaurant since 1996 and the service and attitude to guests is lovely.

We went here in Feb 2/17 due to good past review s but we're quite disappointed. Dreadful ambience consisting of a very loud humming refridgeration unit standing in the middle of the restaurant. Chipped plates, dusty cobweb lights and picture frames, badly decorated and non...More

We recently stayed 6 days in Sicily, enjoyed great food every day, but this was THE best food we tasted during the trip which I think really says something. It was not perfect: down a back-street, no outside terrace, service a little wonky, it was...More

A really typical Sicilian trattoria where the father cooks and the son helps cooking and serves the dishes. It takes a little longer to get the food, but when it is there, it is an explosion of different flavours. We ordered the menu for 20.--...More
