Make sure you ask one of the friendly waiters to help you choose. Advanced booking needed as this place is extremely popular with the locals. Fantastic meal and wine guaranteed!

Really good food and reasonable prices, just manage your expectations for any sort of timely service. Reservations are taken, but not exactly honoured, though they do try to appease the waiting crowd with prosecco. Be prepared to wait to be seated, for drinks, to order, etc. They're extremely busy and the staff rush around. That said, the staff are very... More

The best traditional food we have had in Sicily! Simple, but great taste. Additionally, they serve exceptional beers from Italian micro breweries. Absolutely recommendable!

Nice and big place. As a starter we took a small selection of all starters for 4 people. As a 2nd plate I recommend tonno ammuttunato such an amazing blend of taste, garlic menta cheese tuna and red sauce. Regarding sweets, I tried them all and I would definitely recommend the chocolate cake (setteveli)

We were a table of 14 people we wanted good local food and wine. We have a broad range of antipasto dishes then a main dish each. The only problem is I ate too much. We got there for lunch on a Saturday at about 1 pm and by the time we left it was packed with locals, always a... More
