Sea urchin pasta was a highlight. Excellent gamberoni. Good service and good advice on the Sicilian wines.

Having only heard good things about this restaurant we had high expectations of simple, fresh, local fish. We were disappointed. Started well with red prawns, but the seafood risotto was poor with 6/10 clams unopened and under flavoured rice. The cuttle fish pasta was excellent...More
