Excellent meal here. Efficient service, plenty of room between tables outside. Better to get here by 8/8.30 as by 9 it was full outside. I recommend the Trilogia sicula antipasto, a generous plate of fried caciocavallo, sardine polpette, swordfish caponata - very plentiful, but light. We had beautifully cooked tuna steaks in pistachio crust with potatoes, onions and mint for seconds, and a delicious almond semifreddo for dessert. The house white was very drinkable. We'd eat here again.

Nice spot in a lovely piazza! Nice to sit outside. Good choice of food and wines at very reasonable prices. Some lovely options for vegetarians. Attentive and polite service.

After reading all the reviews we decided to try out luck and they this place. As we haven't made a reservation we were offered to sit inside. The place was full which indicated that it's a good place. We loved everything we ordered, wine and food. Service was also one of the best we have experienced so far. Definitely recommend to visit.

We tried here having failed to get into 2 others that were full. We had low expectations given it is a bit touristy the area, but we're very pleasantly surprised. Had a main course each only, one rabbit and one pork and both were excellent. Service decent and pricing about right. Would recco for anyone..
