Very attractive location if you need to eat something before taking a boat to Eolie. But very dangerous indeed. My son got sick, and it is our fault. Kitchen and all location appears dirty. You can not expect right hygiene in this kind of places....More

Unfortunately my son of 9 years old ate a Lasagna and he got really sick. We’ve got to go to the hospital during the night. The kitchen is dirty. Someone should make a health check to this restaurant! DO NOT GO!

The food is ok but I suppose that's why the prices are so cheap. It's a good style traditional Sicilian food. A bit heavy handed on the salt and the oil but overall it's ok . Eat outside as the inside has some interesting customers!!

In front of the port, the menu is varied. The gnocchi 3 formaggi is good, also the peto di pollo is a good option if tired of pizza and pasta. Recommend.

We have eaten there after our visit on Vulcano - we were exhausted and hungry and this restaurant seemed nice and with reasonable price and really close to the port. We tried turistic menu - so we had pasta and meat course with salad and...More
