Recommended by the guide who eats there. Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff with English language menu and great food. Wine and water included! Wonderful value and would go again without hesitation. A great find if you like Sicilian food.

Very nice trattoria! Good pasta and fish menu.This place is full of guests from the neighbourhood. Everyone gets a bottle of water, a pot of house wine, cannoli for dessert, and some liqeur for the end, and all that things for reasonable coperto price.
