I went to this restaurant with a local friend. I was not so convinced since from the outside I had a bad impression. Actually it's an historical restaurant, staff very friendly and good food. We had fresh fish, good wine and great desserts for a reasonable price....

Our last dinner in Sicily was here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. I started with sardines and then the spaghetti con vongole. My husband ordered a grilled fish and the waiter helped him pick out the proper size for his appetite. The meal was well-prepared and the service was good. It was a bit empty as we arrived around 8pm, but as soon as we left (around 9:30pm,) the locals started to arrive en masse!

The location of the resturant is good.
The atmosphere is avarge less romantic.
It's seems it local and less for tourist.
The fish were very good but they use to much sualt.
The sardines were very much and also the whole fish. In the pasta there was not enough fish.
Overall much not special better for lunch than evening.

We were recommended this restaurant by a local, and as our first outing eating Sicilian food our expectations were high. The pasta with sarde, wild fennel and breadcrumbs was good, as were those with vongole, but not outstanding. Several of us had mixed grilled fish as a second course, and that was downright disappointing. Small mean portions with not a lot of variety, despite having been told that if there were more of us eating this the chef could use a more interesting selection of fish, causing two of us to change our order to this. Not the best introduction to the legendary hospitality is this island. Would not go again.
