Good location right next to the sea with a breathtaking view. Food is terrible, some of the starters are too dry and maybe even frozen. Main dishes are not worthy the price you pay. The service is very low quality and price is too high for what you eat. Not recommended at all

We arrived quite early on a saturday evening but the very friendly waiter showed us immediately to a lovely table right overlooking the small boat harbour. As others here have noted, this is not the cheapest venue, but the food is beautifully presented, super fresh and delicious.

Overlooking the small harbour at Capo Mulini, this restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere with very good food and attentive, friendly service. Fish is a speciality but everything we tasted was really good. A group of us spent a very enjoyable evening watching the sun set over the harbour. Excellent.

We chanced to see this restaurant when wandering around fishing villages north of Catania. An excellent lunch was enjoyed with very friendly service and a visit is highly recommended.

This waterfront seafood restaurant served a perfect dinner for a medium sized group of work colleagues. The restaurant had an indoor space as well as a covered outdoor space where we sat. The service was great and the Pasta con Ricci and Pasta alle Vongele were outstanding.
