This is a nice pizzeria/trattoria in a small village in Sicily. Atmosphere and service are nice and friendly. Food and portions are average.

Called in at 2:20pm, they were kind enough to continue serving which was good. We had some tomato bruschetta and some flat leaf parsley ones, both very fresh and good. A salad of tomato and cheese was fine. So was a penne pasta with chef's ragu sauce. Less good was a rather dry spaghetti with bland meat sauce. An off... More

Pasta was not good at all. Pizza is not served at lunch time. Would not recommend this place. Bruschetta was OK

The food was excellent and served really fast. I would recommend trying their antipasti. There was a lovely assortment of items and all very tasty and fresh. The pizzas were great too and very large. Excellent value for money.

We were given a recommendation to visit this restaurant. Our friend had eaten there eight years prior so we were not sure whether the restaurant would still be there. It certainly was there and the food was just as good as our friend had suggested. Great mushroom salad, mushroom pasta, mushroom soup. You get the idea. Great friendly, family service.... More

besides that the risotto was terrible, the place was freezing cold (OK it was December - still). The service (seams to be owner or owners sun) did not have his best day. The food was OK, the price as well. Having then no credit card acceptation (as the machine does not work) was not good at all and just completed... More

First night and didn't know where to go, we ended up having a pizza here. Very nice pizza, some good antipasti peppers that we added to it, good local wine, friendly service and a delicious semifreddo as dessert. Good quality/price ratio

We stopped here for lunch after coming down from Mt. Etna - we were attracted by the pleasant outdoor patio and by the fact that there were a considerable number of diners present, very few of which appeared to be tourists. We ordered porchini mushroom soup and a salad along with a house red wine. The soup was fantastic. Salad... More
