Really good food including gluten-free pasta. Get the steak with Gorgonzola or the veal meatballs (if you don't mind veal). Terrific service. Amazing.

We had a very good meal here recently. It is a very friendly place, with excellent Sicilian food and a really lively atmosphere.

A disappointing meal after such a high rating on Trip Advisor. Staff friendly and welcoming but food mediocre. Homemade macaroni sounded great but didn't deliver. Too much food made in advance rather than freshly made on request. Didn't bother with pud.

Cozy family restaurant. Lovely service, good English. However, our fish dishes were decidedly average. Amazing baked apple, and lemon sorbet. Overall the meal was average.

The setting and service were fantastic, but the food did not live up to the hype. The squid ink pasta was drowning in the sauce. It was odd considering how Sicilian food was all properly sauced pasta. The almond-crusted fish was overcooked and lacked flavor.

We loved the stuffed veal, stuffed cod, and pasta. Only complaint is that the risotto was bland. The stuffed veal was my fav dish I ate during my 2 week Italy trip. Also best cannoli we had in Sicily.
