I've been there 8 times, decent food, most foods are pretty rich. Pizza's are great, pasta is decent. They have many usually foods that are neat to try, I don't taste consistence here, hit or miss on chef I'm guessing.

This place was amazing in all aspects except for one, we just didn't feel like they wanted us there. (We are Americans) I understand why but it was just a feeling we all had. But the food and atmosphere was great.

I come to this place because of the mussels, they are AWESOME. Of course, I haven't had anything bad here but the mussels are superb! Always have a good time. Definitely recommend having dinner here. And even though will not want to share the mussels plate, you might have to, it's a healthy portion.

One of our first stops in Sicily. American friendly, but maybe a little pricey. We'll be back for sure...

Our family of eight was provided with friendly service and a delicious meal. We enjoyed some appetizers including the incredible mussel dish with the bread topping, a must-try (the description does not do it justice!). Pizzas were scrumptious.

One of the best meals we had in Sicily! The gnocchi were amazing! They even opened early for the weird Americans (us!). Friendly service, nice atmosphere.

Call for reservations. For 7 of us with appetizers, wine, pasta, pizza, and mussels it was 160euro. Wine was very good and you must try the mussels excellent!! Family friendly too! It does not have ac so it does get hot n muggy though.

Nested in the hills near the castle in Motta Is this great little pizzeria that demonstrates why small kitchens are the best. Great wait staff that is very patient. And the food quality and quantity was sufficient. Recommend the mussels in bread.
