Absolutely amazing restaurant. Nothing fancy, you'd come there for a food, not an interior. My wife and I dined out outside (see the picture). They've got a fixed menu so my advice is to start with appetizers first as you may not have any room left for the main course... Simona, the owner was very friendly and helpful. The waiter (do not remember his name) was trying to educate us about every appetizer he served - unfortunately we were not able to understand everything. It has been over six months we have been there so I do not remember everything but, I am quite positive we had either 12 or 15 different appetizers to try... We've been brave enough to go for the main course as well although we said no to pasta. Boy, I do not remember eating this much... Simona sent us a bottle of limonsela and liker for a desert. I highly recommend the restaurant, great experience. Thank you Simona!

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.
