After finding the inside place a bit too much expressing the "kitchen activities" (open kitchens have this often when not dramatically ventilated) we choose to stay outside .
Not only came soon after the sun out , making the bit "nippy" situation much warmer,
the real good food did the rest ! The waitress was extremely friendly (obviously a Sicilian
standard?) and helpful even to some tourist with some difficulties to "keep the food on the plate".

You can have breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers... whatever you like and they're all good. Great ambiance, great atmosphere, gently people that work here and help you to have a great experience.. typical Sicilian and Italian food. Go to Marpessa!

The place is very popular, and from 5pm busy with a nice crowd having drinks. This is what everyone should do, since having dinner is absolute pointless. Average food, uncomfortable ambience, bad service... we all deserve better in such a nice city, offering hundreds of options

Happened on this place on a Sunday afternoon when everything else was closed and ate one of the best meals during my stay in Noto. The pastas were light, flavorful and just plain delicious.

We took our breakfast at this place during our stay in Noto, and we clearly will come here again! The place is really nice, well located, the personnel is really nice, the bakeries are good as for the drinks. They have a nice and quiet terrasse on a little street. Finally, comparing to the city, the prices are really honest considering the quality of the food & drinks.
