I spent with my family the Christmas lunch. The menu and wine was very good. I was impressed by the quality of the food and of the ingredients. Loads of fish cooked in very different ways. Stuff was very friendly. The only negative thing is that the place is a bit small so not always the disposition of the table is ideal. I would recommend this family owned restaurant.

The food was cheap, gross, and rushed. One dish was baby shrimp in a cup of Thousand Island dressing. The food that was offered resembled the rejected food left at a bad seafood buffet. There are so many amazing seafood restaurants in Sicily. This is NOT one of them.

My wife and I made the effort to seek out this restaurant a couple of weeks ago, and you should as well. To reach the restaurant, it is a walk of about 300 meters from the main piazza parking lot at the top of the hill, but more than worth it. Simona greeted us and explained in Italian that the specialty was fresh seafood, there was no menu, and that she would prepare and serve us many courses, including antipasti, primi, and secondi. Our meal included a Prosecco aperitif, a bottle of the very good house label white wine, something like fifteen courses of amazing seafood, including shrimp, mussels, baccala, swordfish, octopus, risotto, pastas, desserts, a glass of granita each, and two different digestivi, both homemade...all at a very reasonable price. Simona was very attentive, especially helping us with our limited Italian. This restaurant was a highlight of our month in Sicily...Simply an amazing, epic meal.

Our group of 17,which may have helped,persuaded Simona to open after apleasant walk in the area surrounding the village.Mine hostess & husband/partner(?) produced course after course in rapid succession accompanied by many bottles of the local white.All were excellent!After a little limoncello the bill of 25 euro/head seemed painless in contrast to the excesses of Taormina.The bonus was happy ,vivacious Simona herself ,she deserves to succeed.
