If you want to be served by Sicily's grumpiest men, then go here. You can taste the lack of love in the bland careless dishes served to you abruptly by the 2 older waiters. House wine served to us, should have only be used for cooking not drinking. We were over charged and when we questioned this the manager told... More

If you would like to have spaghetti Italian style which are not cooked to international style try this place. Not glamorous, simple but delicious meals. Try the wine of the house. Quick and friendly service.

Found this hidden place on a side street and it was rich with great spaghetti and wine. Nice small and quaint place that was really worth it! Enjoyed

The pasta with swordfish and capers was truly magnificent, so we went there a second time and found the food equally good. Both times it was well worth the money.

It started to pour down with rain so we had to get in to eat earlier than planned. Thus place starts serving mains earlier than the nearby restaurants so we gave it a shot. The Antipasti Di Campagnolo was awful, for 8€ a plate with onion in oil, three medium sized peppers in oil (one had gone brown, roasted before?... More

We were the first diners to arrive at this trattoria after 7pm and the waiter seems really annoyed we had arrived early, even though we didn't think 7pm was too early. The waiter quickly threw cutlery on our table and bought us English menus. When we asked for one menu in Italian he rolled his eyes and mumbled something. We... More

It looks like the place for locals, but the pasta is much too overcooked and not really worth the high prices. The service has many waiters, but they stand around and just look busy. They forgot the starters, and tried to give us a paper bill without the fiscal receipt. Not recommended for italians or anyone looking for good food.

A waiter that couldn't care less if we were there or not. Food that tasted ok, but not more than that. We ordered two different spaghetti dishes and a bottle of the local wine. Well...maybe we asked for it our self, but the wine was below average! The dishes were very average. We did expect a lot more due to... More

Staff seated us pretty quickly, but as one of our kids put it, they didn't seem very interested thereafter. My food was late and the waiter was at times a little surly (eg when he got the kids' drinks order wrong). The food was very good however. I'm sure that for some people, rude waiters and poor service are part... More
