What can I say more? I am absolutely impressed. The reservation was made the day before. English speaking guests were important for owners - speech in Franch was translated into English. We felt like having dinner with friends, not like in a restaurant.

This is a special place. The owner, Santy, runs the restaurant, is a waiter, and plays music for you. Santy is a world-class classical guitarist, and it is worth going to the restaurant solely for the concert that he gives. Santy gave me a CD...More

Unique restaurant. Virtuous Music and Authentic Sicilian Food! This music restaurant is managed by the musician and cook Santy Masciaro from Sicily. He welcomes guests with a glass of prosecco and delicious Sicilian finger food... And of course with a smile. Then the restaurant transforms in a small concert hall and Santy plays a virtuous guitar concert of 30 min. After the concert; lights go on again and a home made Sicilian menu is served. All recipes are from his family.
