Good service and wine. Ordered rolled swordfish. It was a little too mushy and lukewarm for my taste, with an overpowering taste of lemon. But the starters, sides, wine, and service were good.

Absolutely recommended both for lunch and dinner! Let the Italian waiters suggest you the plates of the day or something to taste while waiting for the main course. Pasta is awesome and the restaurant is just two minutes away from the Cathedral.

I go there for lunch very often and sometime at dinner with friends or family. It's a real Italian restaurant with a Sicilian touch. Pasta is cooked at the italian way (al dente) and the right quantity, meat and fish are both well cooked. My...More
