This is a spacious but small restaurant which restricts itself to fewer than thirty covers, though while we were there they turned away lots of people without a booking and so could easily pack in more if they chose. You get a really warm welcome here and there is a genuine and relaxed feel about everything. The local families evidently... More

We had very tasty home made fish based food. Everything served was delicious: the starters with polpette di sarde, panelle with carpaccio of tuna fish... The ravioli alla ricotta and the calamarata...excellent the calamari fritti and, last but not least, the "cassateddi ca ricotta". Very good white wine and friendly service! I recommend Caupona if you want to eat good... More

Allot of bad food exists in Sicily, no one will tell you that. The people don't see dining out as something of true value an most just use them to make high profits. This place gave,respect,passion, and love to the food and the customer. I had the fish cous cous and it was delicious. My girlfriend had an eggplant pasta... More

Excellent quality food served by friendly staff. Chef brings out the fish of the day so you can made an informed choice. It's a small place so book if you want to go high season. Definitely a good choice.

I had looked at this restaurant many times but never found it open. Tonight I used Trip Advisor to find some highly recommended places and this looked good. It was exceptional, the combination of tastes exquisite in a very simple but highly professional atmosphere. Excellent Nero D'Avola at a lower per glass price than elsewhere and no trying to turn...

Arrived early on a Friday night (1920 ish). Told not yet open but happily waited the 10 minutes. Many, many people turned away even though tables available - everyone was asked if pre booked so maybe this is a requirement? Local, fresh fish -cooked to order. Menu predominantly fish. John had the fried cheese with honey (see photo) which when... More

Th start was not good: restaurant was completely empty inside but we were told to get back in 30 mins. After that, when we sat, everything went ok. Couscous shall be tried, though being a fish restaurant I'd recommend to ask advice on the fish/dish of the day. Personnel is very chatty and eager to support you in the choice.... More

Tasty, fresh-if my kids ate whole dish with sauce, and gave 5 points, that tells everything. Reasonable price (we paid 50 eur for 4persons with drinks).

We stopped in for dinner and had to make a reservation for the following night, as they were booked. We had received strong recommendations from locals, so our expectations were high. Service was fine but a bit impersonal (unfriendly?) With the exception of one of the servers who was very nice and kind. The food was fine, but the only... More
