Easy location to find for standard fare. Staff was nice. Very reasonable price. There are many places to have pizza and our concierge suggested this place.

This modest little restaurant will surprise you by the excellent food and very friendly service. An authentic Sicilian experience. Great value. Free Wi-fi too.

We stayed at the hostel across the street and ate here 2 nights in a row! You must try the Faggato pizza (1 of the "house specialty pizzas") and the Sicilian pasta. The Monsu pizza was great too. Each night our bill was 27 euros...More
