This restaurant is located on the upper floor of a gelateria, so not easy to understand how is the place, but the upper floor leads you to a nice and elegant restaurant. We had a very good fish appetizer and a very generous squid ink spaghetti dish, all very tasty and fresh. One suggestion : ask waiters to smile.... it... More

We were recommended by the owner of the villa we were staying in to go to this restaurant as one of the best in the area. Unfortunately our experience was anything but good. The service was terrible, the food average. The waiter was almost rude and showed no interest in explaining the menu options to us and all our meals... More

We have been coming to this place for 2 years now for the very best gelato (ice cream) you can have. We tried gelato all over Sicily but found out that they make the best ones here in this gelateria. My favourite is their pistacchio but you can not go wrong with any flavor there :)
