An outstanding family-run restaurant. We ordered swordfish and both salads - one with tomatoes, olives and onions, the other with oranges. Exquisite!

On our second visit we ordered sea food antipasti. Delicious! About ten delicious dishes arrived. To finish, lemon sorbet. Magic!

Wonderful, intimate, historic restaurant in the heart of Acitrezza! My wife and I have been going there for many years. It is always our first stop upon arriving in Sicilia. Excellent, right from the sea fare for every course!! Saluti, Capitano e Turi!!

You have to try the "Marinati" and the Oranges salad: fantastic, nothing can top that. Everything was perfect from the starter to dessert. Service is very nice. This restaurant is a MUST DO when you are in Aci Trezza

We enjoyed a fresh dinner with friends.

Starters have been amazing. Different dishes coming with original and well done fish preparations which delighted our taste in a great way.

Courtesy and simpathy of personnel have been of same good quality.

We unfortunately lost our expectations coming to the main courses (spaghetti with "vongole" has been the most taste-less ever tried in my life, even mussels were really in poor quantity in respect of the quantity of pasta).

Second fall, regarding the wine. Once we asked for the second bottle, we have been invited to accept a different one, because previous type was not fresh. Even worse, such second type of wine was so bad taste.

In such a place, leading the customer to promise a superior experience (it's also a not so cheap place!) such kind of things cannot happen.

Customer experience is primarly a must, I must say "WOOOOOOW" in front of my vongole pasta, the wine must be ...orgasmatic!!

We have been unfortunately very far from this.

I trust it has been just an occasional situation.

across the street from the fish market, not on the main road, you will find a great sea place. although the waitress did not speak any English the good will was there big time and we felt very comfortable. great food, great service. what else one needs?
