We were expecting our food to have a bit more of our Wow factor given the 1 Michelin star that it had. Unfortunately while the tastes were good you couldn't rate them as great. Plating was fine & we had no problems with the service.

I visited this restaurant and I tasted really delicious pasta with octopus then ever had before and I still remember it. Good wine list, super kind Chef&Staff.I highly suggest to visit this place with a nice walk in Terrasini on lungomare.

The white on white dining room is exquisitely chic, but pales (pardon the pun) in comparison to the food. Dish after dish showcasing the freshest ingredients with Chef Giuseppe Costa's magical touch. Highly recommended.

Not sure how this restaurant made it in to the michelin guide and we had a very disappointing dinner. Absolutely no character in the solitary dining room that you enter straight off the street; bright impersonal lighting and a totally uninspired food offering. Despite having...More

I am still wondering what was the motivation to establish such a high standard restaurant in a small city...I guess just quality itself.... or maybe some personal bound to the place...Both the food and the service was a very nice suprise on our last day...More

We have chosen this restaurant basing on Michelin Guide recommendations and because it’s very near to the Palermo Airport where we were finishing our journey and had to return a car. Otherwise we would never visit Terrasini, which is a sleepy and very unassuming seaside...More
