An outstanding family-run restaurant. We ordered swordfish and both salads - one with tomatoes, olives and onions, the other with oranges. Exquisite! On our second visit we ordered sea food antipasti. Delicious! About ten delicious dishes arrived. To finish, lemon sorbet. Magic!

Wonderful, intimate, historic restaurant in the heart of Acitrezza! My wife and I have been going there for many years. It is always our first stop upon arriving in Sicilia. Excellent, right from the sea fare for every course!! Saluti, Capitano e Turi!!

You have to try the "Marinati" and the Oranges salad: fantastic, nothing can top that. Everything was perfect from the starter to dessert. Service is very nice. This restaurant is a MUST DO when you are in Aci Trezza

It's a family tradition to come here every time we're in Sicily. The seafood and the cooking is perfectly Sicilian style. Fair, fresh and generous. Quality is great and atmosphere absolutely easy going. The antipasto della Casa entails more than 10 servings and every piece...More
