We had been walking around all day and most places were closed between 3 and 7.30pm. This place is very simple and in a beautiful square just at the end of the alley to the fish market. We ordered a couple of panini which were...More

Food is sicilian, family owned and run, very friendly and reasonable on a quiet street off a busy square. We would definitely go back. NOT FANCY if you are looking for special night.
