The service was ok. The presentation of the dishes and quantity was good. Unfortunately the quality was inexistent. Nothing was fresh. Just recicled dishes with processed ingredients and with lots of greese. This was not real italian at all.

We came for dinner as part of a Godfather Tour. They started with a spritzer. Our guide encouraged us to pace ourselves and I soon found out why! The waiter proceeded to drop off plate after plate of seafood dishes. No explanation and I don’t...know much of what I had. But I was stuffed in the end!More

For lunch they have a fixed menu of 20/30/40 eur. 20 - starters (13 types of fish) 30- starter + first 40- starter+ first+ second We choosed 20 eur per person option. I can say, i was not surprised at all. The food had no...personallity. So, probably people a attracted by the name and #4 on tripadvisor, like we were. For sure I will not come her for the second time. It was not very bad but for 40 eur + coperta in 2 you get much more better food in other reataurants.More

Be prepared to have lots of food. We had the seafood apetizers formula which was really a great variety of delicious Sicilian dishes, which was about 14 dishes. Extremely good value.

We passed by for lunch on the way back from a Sicily 2-day holiday. The restaurant is in a nice town in the hills above the coast. It has a spectacular view. The restaurant serves numerous seafood starters, which would be a meal itself. House...white wine and water is refilled throughout. Pasta and rice dishes are offered after that followed by fish main courses if there is still room. Then lemon sorbet, desserts, liquors and coffee. All at a very modest price. Great for groups of friends and family with a big appetite and small budget. Quality is okMore

Terraced restaurant with an amazing view of the coastline, the ambiance is typical of a trattoria, the food is average and so the service. Be very careful at where you park and make sure that the vehicle is within blue lines, in right direction and...to have a valid parking ticket as the local traffic wardens are giving fines very easily.More

Average breakfast, staff were rude but that could just be a language barrier thing. Two other groups came and left before ordering because the staff were rude. We waited a while before they gave us a menu and then they took ages before coming back....Nobody enjoyed the breakfast except those who got the omlettes so I would recommend getting a cheese omlettes and add ham. Don't get the bacon as it was tiny. My partner ordered the ham and eggs but they came out with an omelette which he preferred anyway after seeing the eggs and bacon. We ordered croissants but they had run out. They bought out some bread though. Breakfast was cheap and if you get the omelette I reckon worth the money.More
