Me and family visit this restaurant on July during our vacations in Sicily and I have to tell that the freshness and the variety of the seafood it is great. Not only from the menu but also from the fish market inside the restaurant. Reasonable prices and good quality.

This is the 3rd time we've visitted Sicily and our 6th meal at Al Gabbiano 2. The fish is fresh and delicous and the service is excellent. Every time we've come we've been treated like family. Highly recommended: Pasta al Vongole and Pesce alla Sale. You won't regret the visit! Portions are generous.

Great find. This fish restaurant does fresh fish at reasonable prices. The quality is good and thus continues with lovely fresh bread and tasty fresh green local olive oil. The tuna carpaccio was excellent, the squid tasty and the swordfish moist and perfectly cooked. The local wine was reasonable and good value.
