Last night of our holiday we treated ourselves with a nice fish dinner. As starter we had a nice mix of cold, hot and marinated fish dishes. For the main course we chose a sea bream from the counter, we had the opportunity to also choose the cooking method: oven baked with potatoes, grilled or “al sale” (covered in salt)... More

I hardly ever write a review. It has to be extraorinary good experience or something what really strikes you as a negative impression. This restaurant has a great location, good atmosphere and nice food. However we did not feel the level of service was matching the price or type of the venue. The place is presenting itself as a higher... More

Their squid ink risotto was delicious! We liked it so much, we went there twice. Lovely setting, fresh seafood, and really friendly service.

We were disappointed in the osteria on the water front. From the start we felt rushed and our plates were taken away before we were even done. The entire menu was seafood which is good. The pasta dish of shrimp and swordfish was fine, the octopus salad was tasty and very generous portion. Compared to the other fine meals we... More

While walking along the seaside with some friends, we came across this nice quaint restaurant that stroke us. We asked for a menu,as neither dishes nor prices were displayed outside. We were simply not let in by an impolite waiter who replied: "it's out of your range". I've rarely been treated so rudely in a restaurant context and seldom found... More

We went to this restaurant after asking a couple of locals for recommendations. It was definitely a good choice. Fish was almost alive and cooked to perfection.

I really enjoying eating outside on holiday (I live in Scotland!), and this was just what I was looking for – sitting outside on a sunny day with a sea view eating fresh, local food. Most of the tables are situated outside the building (under an awning) and there's a great view across the harbour. Parking is easy in Aci Trezza... More
