Service was slow and selection of white wine served "quater Firriato was from 2015" with cork taste. fish soup was one of the tragic experience, clam full of sand not properly drained prior cooked, impossible to eat. Waitress removed plates and don't even ask why everything was left over. Experience not to repeat.

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Sicily and I have dined here a dozen times over the last five years. Centrally located, has two elegant and comfortable rooms with simple, modern and tasteful decor. It is family owned and operated:a recent addition is the young son who has trained as sommelier and knows his wine. Everything here is superb:... More

This is a lovely little restaurant in the heart of the centro storico of Marsala. The food here is wonderful! While not especially creative, it is nicely presented and most important of all - a delight to eat! Any of the crudo dishes are a must to order first. I followed that with a fish soup that was wonderful, large... More

We chose here after wandering round the town for a bit - the menu was more appealing than others. The restaurant is modern in style and layout. It was slightly more expensive than equivalent meals we had eaten out in Sicily but the food was of high quality (veal carpaccio, seafood tagliatelle) and good selection of wine and artisan beers....

Now I know why this place is almost always full: the food is absolutely excellent. The selection is great but comes with a price tag: not cheap but justified. The setting is modern, simple Osteria-style, with nice ambient lighting. The staff is very helpful and friendly, never rushed, even when all the tables were occupied. A must go and eat... More

Antipasti, Cozze and vongole, was ok. But then they almost forgot our primi and instead they prepared and almost served our secondi, which was fresh fish. It took THE staff 60 minutes to solve THE primi. Our secondi was On THE table only 5 minutes after finishing THE primi, but was almost cold and overdone. Wine was fine! Dolce, caffe... More

Excellent. Sandro runs a wonderful restaurant in the heart of Marsala. Food is always fresh and menu is updated regularly. The king prawns, cous cous and curry sauce starter is devine. My daughter had perfectly cooked fillet, and I had wonderful pasta with prawns and sword fish. Star was the peach tiramisu.... Delicious!

Great place, nice design. Excellent food, good portions. Very attentive service. Had starter and main each, and it was actually too much, will definitely opt for starter to share next time I'm around. Worth visiting if you are looking for a proper dinner, enjoy seafood and good wine. I
