This is a restaurant/ fish market and you can choose your fish ( all fresh catches of the day) from the market side. The plate they put in front of you is definitely high end Sicilian gastronomy! They also have a collection of wines from Sicily ( Specially Edna mountain region) and you can not go wrong with their recommendation.... More

Very dull restaurant, too bright and indifferent. First course was acceptable but the second course was a complete ripoff. "Local fish" was a measly lump of fish with two prawns with a mixture that tasted of stale Xmas pudding. Overpriced, overdone and over the hill. Avoid!

The 5 course tasting menu was superb. Service was excellent but almost too quick. The restaurant is very clean and well decorated. The only drawback is that being one street back from the from it doesn't have outdoor seating. We ate in other restaurants with a better atmosphere during our two weeks, but the food was exceptional.

We went for the 5 course special menu priced at 45 Euro. Each course was fantastic and the service was to match. My wife is celiac and courses where adapted accordingly. Knowledge of the allergy was commendable.

The best quality of the fresh fish. It is not just a restaurant, but an absolutely magic place! The chief is a great experimentator, that perfectly combines the classic tastes. I recommend it to all who is in love with oysters and fresh sea food of all kinds! Also a great choice of wies.

There are not a lot of upscale fine dining restaurants in the area so if its fine dining you want then you can't go wrong with this place. The ambiance is modern minimalism, clean lines and good ambient lighting. Our server was Gian Carlo, he was very helpful and spoke very good english. He even gave us a tour of... More
