We found this place on TA and decided to go for lunch since it was close to where we had already parked our car for another stop that morning. There was only one other person there when we arrived so we didn't have any examples...More

I think this place does not have the web popularity it deserves. It is certainly very popular with locals at midday. Small but cosy with a very simple menu, the place can nonetheless be praised for the quality of the food. Less on the menu...More

Fish and the Vongole are very fresh. Very good service (even throw in the Caponata for us to try). Should also try the boiled octopus.

If you want to experience a local osteria, where to taste Seasonal Dishes and local food, this is the place. It might represent the best option for a not pretentious but very genuine meal. Fish is absolutely fresh and the place very cosy and familiar....More

There was nothing wrong with any of the dishes, but none was good. I assume this IS typical flavor, but not ours. We've been eating all over Sicily, first time all the dishes weren't our palate. Good service, good atmosphere, good deserts.
