Very good food, with a splendid antipasto buffet and inside space which is useful when windy. Great place to watch the sunset, either inside or out. Very popular, so useful to book ahead, especially at weekends.

Ust had an impromptu lunch here, we shares a pizza and calamari fretting, both were of good standard, include a half bottle of wine and a small water and with the service charge the total bill was only 30 euros, no doubt we will return

Two pizzas (quite large: we took half of one home in a box), half a liter of the house white wine, a bottle of mineral water and one canolo, 29 euros. Great location and friendly service too. Giggle recommended in Cefalu.

Restaurant recommended by hotel staff and we weren't disappointed. We had pasta dishes on both visits which was cooked perfectly and will book again before we go home. Reasonably priced meals.

Food is really good and the staff are really nice! Prices are amazing. Also location was perfect since we were staying at a hotel on the lungomare. We liked it so much that we ate there both nights we stayed in Cefalu. Would definately visit again if ever in Cefalu.

On our way we've stopped in this lovely town by the sea. Luckily it was easy to find the parking lot by the beach, just about hundred meters from the restaurant. Arriving around 8 pm we were lucky to get a lovely table (when leaving, people were already waiting to get any), and were served nice pasta (one with ragu... More

We wanted to a quick lunch on our way to Palermo. But we were so surprised with the quality and the taste of the typical Sicilian food. Very well cooked, nicely served meals made us all happy. Two bottles of delicate red "Terre Siciliane" wine boosted our mood.
