Sciacca has plenty of very respectable places to eat, where you can enjoy fresh seafood done simply and well. This place, though, exists on another level. The cooking is simply sublime and the good really out of the ordinary. We enjoyed it so much we...More

Wonderful service. Kind, attentive, helpful but not intrusive. Great atmosphere, and a picturesque location. The food is also fantastic, some of the best we had in Sicily. The wine list is extensive, with a special page of natural wine. A must visit in Sciacca.

Excellent gourmet food - especially the tasting menu. Not cheap though. Wine list excellent with good variety of local wines and informed sommelier, reasonable value. Recommended if you want a special meal in Sciacca. However unlike other places no outdoor seating or view over harbour.

We visited the restaurant twice in a row, first time because it was referenced in a travel guide, second time because we really liked it. Outside there is only the name of the place, no menu, closed door. When you enter, you are greeted by...More
