Should you be in Porto Empedocle waiting for a ferry to Lampadusa, Pantelleria or someplace else make time to eat here. It's unpretentious with fixed price, no menu and fish that was caught the day you eat it. They have claimed the wide stone steps outside the restaurant as their own and set up tables there. That's where we sat.....and... More
