Great family run restaurant with good fish dishes and a beautiful ambience. One of those rare places were you could happily spend a few hours slowly eating and drinking an afternoon away after a shopping spree in the morning.

Looks unimposing from the outside but seafood and antipasto were superb with all Italian clientele and helpful staff. The 40 year old prosecco also excellent.

I had been to this restaurant before and was very happy with the meal, it had delicious food. On this occasion though the meal was disappointing. I was hoping to have nice fish, but they didn't have much selection

Took a day trip here to check out the ceramics. Found this restaurant by chance while looking for a place to park. What a pleasant surprise! Very warm, welcoming space with friendly staff. The tables filled quickly for lunch by locals so we knew the good would be good. My daughter ordered the fried calamari - it was excellent. So... More

Found it by accident a nice surprise. Good menu full of Sicilian specialities. Tried the seafood antipasti very good but glad we shared it as it was a lot for one. Then had sausages, take it from an English woman these were good. Local wine dirt cheap and quaffable.

We took a day trip from Cefalu` to Santo Stefano di Camastra which is known for its ceramics. One of the teachers at the language school I was attending recommended Da Giannino.

4 of us ordered "mixed hot appetizers" - there had to be 8 dishes - all phenomenal. Even the bread & olive oil were superb. After the appetizers we shared pasta dishes between the couples (it was plentiful). Pasta vary by day - the appies stole the show

When in town to shop for the great and extensive selection of pottery, ceramic etc, this restaurant is a must stop for dining for lunch or dinner or anytime. The food is superb, with a heavy menu emphasis on fresh local seafood. The pasta selection is superb and always ask the friendly and english speaking family staff to offer recommendations... More
