This is without doubt the best available in Riposto and we tried several which were all good. The fish dishes are exceptional. Their presentation is really good on every dish. The courtyard garden through the back of the restaurant is ideal for outdoor dining.

I've been just once,in summer time,and I was surprised how the enviroment was nice. The location of this restaurant is Hood to have a nice walk after dinner,alongside the marina,in the downtown of the small city of Riposto.

The food was delicious and we sat outside in a very cosy little area. To our opinion it was also affordable!!

Family of 6 adults had a selection of meals. All the plates were left clean. The steak although was not a filet was gorgeous. Service was good but it appeared as 1 chef and 2 waiters were trying to serve 30+ people. Worth waiting for!!

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic and they had a great selection of local Mt Etna wines (which I'm now I love with.. Especially Cantine Russo). The staff were super friendly and spoke perfect English. The... More

Super restaurant, with a very accommodating staff making sure you have a nice experience. The food ( Angus steak) was very delicious, the recommended local vine was deep, and with a lot of flavor. I would definitely go there again.
