Despite our group of 45 descending on this venue like a group of hungry seagulls the service was excellent, well managed and efficient. The choice of set menus for 25 euro for meat / vegetarian or 35 euro for fish were spread among our groups and the waiters sorted one from the other with plated starters with ease. The bottles...

From the outside not very attractive but inside nice classical atmosphere, old building, large walls, cellar feeling. The service was very good : flexible, just the right speed, no remarks. The food and wine was ok but not exceptional. Price of 35€, 4 course, drinks inclusive is very ok.

We liked this restaurant so very much we came here twice - at the beginning of our 10 day trip & on our last day in Sicily. Our guide to Mt Etna recommended this restaurant & we loved it. Order the risotto with shrimp & pistachios & you'll think you're in heaven. The pizzas are huge - large enough for... More

I really liked the place! the pizza is ever so nice and they serve also dishes which are not on the menu e.g. a small tomato salad.

I enjoyed very much the grilled squid and the lovely atmosphere of the restaurant situated in the ancient boat cellars renovated to a charming and cooling location. Wines were delicious and service was pleasant and attentive. Price was also very reasonable for the fresh quality of the menu!! Enjoy!

We found this place by chance. It was very otantic italian restaurant. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Seafood soup was the best I've ever had. Everyone should try, you are using mussels as spoon. We tried risotto and spaghetti with seafood which were both excellent. We also tried sicilian tastes in small plates and enjoyed very much.

We came here for a quick lunch. I had the traditional pasta 'ca muddica (with toasted breadcrumbs and anchovies) and my friend had fish which she said was fresh. Our waitress wasn't very friendly but we weren't in there that long for it to be a problem. In the summer they apparently have a lovely roof top terrace but, as... More
