Sat down at a lovely table waiting for the menu which took a good 10 minutes. After deciding what we'd like to order, it literally took another 20 minutes. Eye contact was made with multiple waiters/waitresses however we were ignored. Mussel pasta was very good,...More

Food was good as most restaurants in Sicily, however the service was the worst we had experienced. Called the waiter 3 times at least, nearly walked out at one point. The young waiters who seemed students making some pocket money during the week end do...More

Had the worse dinner ever. Had to wait 3 hours before eating something, our order was lost, then they run out of food. Management very rude and unprofessional. Never again. What was meant to be a nice evening turned to be a nightmare.

We had a nice lunch here in the airy barn-like dining room opposite the Tonnery. There are some nice old photos while you loiter in the reception area. Food was good, service attentive and friendly. Not expensive. We would go again.

Had an early dinner and decided to sit inside as it was a bit warm outside. The bread was so good we ordered more, warm with herbs and salt and very tasty. Pasta was good and service ok.

Good food at very reasonable prices. From the pasta to the fish you won't go wrong. Great view of the sea from the front door but unfortunately no outdoor seating. For the price, worth it.
