Went here on recommendation of our host. Had the most amazing melt in the mouth steak. The service was good too, though English was limited. The wine was amazing value with 1/2 litre of house wine at €5, and it was delicious wine.

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Good selection of different food, and the focaccia was amazing! The different types of meat were cooked to perfection. The price was reasonable. The only drawback was the heat, even though we were out on the terrace. Would like to go again.

This place offers no kind of typical Sicilian food, nor anything else to die for. The menu is dull. Cheese platters and 'affettati' (the latter from other parts of Italy), although acceptable, are ridiculously overpriced. As I wrote, the menu is dull. The execution of the dishes is average, the presentation is alright (they take care in how they serve... More
