The food is actually ok but it just took so long to get it. Went for lunch - ages to get a menu, we ordered immediately - took 15 minutes to bring the bottle of wine, another 5 before glasses to go with. The food was almost an hour. There were 3 waiting staff looking after maybe 12-14 people. Yet... More

Ordered food...and 1 out of 4 managed to arrive 1hr after when we woke to walk away. It was terrible experience... Avoid this place... Arancini were bought from the opposite gelateria a take away.

While on a Rick Steve's Tour, we had just a short time to stop by for a cappuccino . . . very beautiful & cozy café with an exquisite looking espresso machine. Staff very friendly and quick service. Just what we needed that day!

This little cafe is located in the charming old town of Marsala. My husband enjoyed his pasta dish with tomato sauce and I absolutely loved my vegetable & cheese platter. Night after night of pizza or pasta can wear on your digestion. It was so refreshing to finally avoid the carbs and have a platter of freshly grilled vegetables and... More

This is the coziest coffee shop in Marsala. Most creative interior, nice music, good coffee, sincere hospitality. Most visit for espresso cup or fine marsala vine. Don't forget Sicilian cap. You'll find it here too.

We chose this lovely place for lunch in the heart of Marsala, just off of the main square and close to one of the gates. There is seating outside. The service was good and attentive. Since it was lunch, we ordered a few different small things to try them out. The tuna salad is excellent and greatly recommended. It had... More
