We were staying in the region and were told about this iconic restaurant. So we wanted to try and booked a table (recommended). The venue already is worth it. The service is a bit old fashioned. That was not the best meal we ever had,...More

When we initially entered the restaurant we anticipated a Michelin style dinner in a comfortable setting. Unfortunately this was not to be. The meals, wine & service were really average. For example one of our table ordered their meat fillet to be cooked medium but...More

This was our one 'posh meal' of our 2 week trip to Sicily - so we'd decided to go for the fish tasting menu. The food was delicious, and some of the courses were exceptional. Our criticism was the speed each course arrived; at times...More

Quick summary first, it did not quite live up to the high expectations. Don't get me wrong, there is not much to complain about. Food was good, borderline great. Service was OK. Wine recommended by the sommelier was excellent. But the place is missing something....More

It is not Sicily! This is unfriendly, cold place with unpleasant people! I am very glad that we have had supper in other place! I have ordered a table on five people via the website of this restaurant. When we have come, have given us...More
