This dinner was fabulous. My sister and I had salmon - excellent, my husband had the sea bass - excellent, and my brother in law had tuna - excellent. The appetizers were also fabulous, as was the Etna wine. It was a perfect meal!

Brilliant food. The duck was perfect, the tuna was sublime. We had a fantastic time, especially as the ambiance was lively with still swift and attentive service. Surprisingly affordable, and even with great wine!

Very Parisian, both in simple interior style and menu. Pleasant and well executed dishes with good service, though nothing exceptional. Prices that would be reasonable in paris, but feel a little expensive in Sicily. A safe bet.
