We went to Tonno Rosso on a wet Thursday night and, unsurprisingly, found the restaurant very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. I ordered the mixed grill comprised of a swordfish steak, a whole sea bream and two large langoustine. I also enjoyed a large plate of grilled vegetables.... More

Food was delicious! We each had the fish antipasti starter (I had cooked version, my husband had the raw version). Well worth it, followed by some delicious nice fresh fish. Service was also excellent. The only down side is that the restaurant is way too bright - they should turn the lights down to create a nicer setting.

Had low expectation of Pozzallo as a location but the square in which the restaurant is set is very scenic and makes an excellent backdrop for dinner. The seafood starter signature dish was exceptional and well presented and the fish main courses fresh and well cooked. Our only problem was consuming the sheer volume of food

Have the mixed starter!! The ravioli was excellent. Pudding great too. Friendly and helpful staff with excellent English ' menu support' The place to come for a 'special' night in Southern Sicily. Reserve to guarantee a seat on the terrace.

This was the first restaurant we visited on our southern Sicily holiday ...and what a way to start! Newly opened - the restaurant had recently moved from its previous position 2 weeks previously... The restaurant is now housed in a beautiful building overlooking the piazza in Pozallo. We were fortunate to have booked a table outside on the balcony.... The... More

I ate at here at Osteria Il Tonno Rosso during my first visit to Pozzalo, Sicily. The appetizer was one of most beautiful and thoughtfully created seafood dishes I have ever had before. We were presented with an elegant assortment of various fish paired with unique textural and flavor combinations. Our waiter spoke English well gave a very detailed description... More

I made my first trip out to Pozzallo, Sicily this summer and I was blown away with the food at Osteria Il Tonno Rosso. I have eaten at many fine restaurants throughout America and Europe and I can honestly say that this was my favorite Seafood place. I wish that they would open up a second location in California so... More

Eat the mixed fish starter. Great ravioli. Fish of the day baked in salt crust. All superb. Service very good from English speaking team. Well informed. Don't miss this restaurant if you like fish/seafood.

A terrific seafood restaurant in Pozzallo. The mixed fish antipasti is a plate of about 15 different taste experiences. The tuna steak was perfectly cooked. Very friendly, helpful service!

Because of the good reviews we visited this restaurant. It is small so in the weekend its necessary to make a reservation. Food is excellent, take the Anti Pasti Tonno Rosso; very good.
