My friend and I had lunch at this restaurant while sightseeing in Acireale, Sicily. We just stumbled across it with no prior knowledge of it, but we were very pleased with our experience. We appeared to be the only non-Italians in the place and many locals appeared to be eating there; that's usually a good sign and it certainly was... More

Specializes in fish, which was heaven for my husband. But as a vegetarian I found a plate of mouth watering fresh pasta with super delicious sauce. Home wine is divine and the desserts are to die for! Staff is very friendly, efficient and helpful. Was there for Easter lunch.

Superb seafood. Great prices. Clearly a well established restaurant loved by the locals too. Worth the drive.

We luckily found this place on trip advisor during our trip down from the north of the island. The meal was one of the best we had throughout our whole trip. Great quality simple Sicilian food serve well. We had fried squid starter (a main dish but large enough to share), seafood pasta dishes and a ricotta cake for desert.... More

Food delicious, service the most friendly in Santa Tecla, setting in a pleasant garden and very good value. The friendly service and welcome puts this ahead of any restaurant for me in this village.

Don't be deceived by the look, it's a sweet trattoria on the side of the road, rated number 1 for a reason. The food was sublime, fresh and great service!

The outdoor part of the restaurant is covered and surrounded by trees giving it a pleasant atmosphere for dinner. We visited twice as we really wanted to try out their seafood and other dishes. The musles were large and juicy. Grilled fish and prawns were fresh and grilled nicely. Apart from seafood dishes the restaurant also serves excellent pasta and... More

We have visited this ristorante several times on our one week trip as the food was that amazing. Our cousins were here the week before and ate there almost everyday. The service was great... Mom cooks, dad serves and son takes orders. Can't get more traditional than that! Involtini, spaghetti alla vongole, grilled swordfish, vegetables and blanco vino are all... More

We had the place to ourselves as Sicilians tend to eat quite late - after 9pm We cannot eat as much as Italians must, antipasta, primi, secondi etc so we opted for a course each. Risotto with courgette and prawns that was creamy and well flavoured and a well cooked and presented swordfish steak. House wine was light bodied red... More

We are here early one evening and the waiter was very attentive considering no English. We had swordfish with mozzarella and breadcrumbs and a selection of sides and it was a fabulous meal. The house white wine was very nice. The restaurant itself is tired with the windowsills peeling off and the lighting is too bright for my preference when... More
