We stumbled across this restaurant purely by accident whilst looking for a lunchtime option. The outside looked smart and the menu extensive. We were efficiently sat in a very pretty outside courtyard area with parasols. We spoke in Italian and ordered our food in Italian with the waiter who was polite if somewhat perfunctory. The food arrived, very disappointing pizza for my son but the Costa Smerelda my daughter ordered was the best dish she ate whilst in Sicily and we had some fantastic food. The mood changed when a large tummied man in a T shirt arrived closely followed by a smart man with a briefcase who started going through papers and his tablet with him. The waiting staff were very attentive towards them and were asked to fully advise them of everything we'd eaten and whether we'd ordered wine or not. My daughter who was facing them felt very intimidated with their nodding at us and laughing which the waiting staff and other members of the kitchen staff seemed to be involved in. Our original waiter looked a little uncomfortable as I guess he knew we understood a fair amount of Italian. After the suited man had left the T shirted man remained closely scrutinising us. We finished out meal and paid the bill in cash not wanting to stay for desert, as we left the waiting staff handed over about 10 Euro's of our bill to the T shirted man. I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Eating in the downstairs courtyard was nice. The food was fair, but not anything special considering what you can find in the province of Trapani. The price was outrageous and there's an "charming" old guy out on the streets who stops tourists to chat them up and then take them to this restaurant. We should have known better.

Horrible place to have! Zero service! Loud! Hot! Very poor atmosphere! Our kids fell asleep at the table and we were so unpleased but still was waiting and giving the place chance. We wait for our order for 1.45 min! And never got it! We then got up and wanna leave but they try charge 33 euro for plate of antipasta,water, bread, and coperto!!! No more comments -0 star for this place!
