I don't know why this place is rated so high. Maybe a change of ownership? One waiter was very rude and impatient and the owner was yelling to another waiter. Not a really nice atmosphere. Unlike the menu said, not all the wine was available...More

Very cool and authentic restaurant. Good cooking at a good Price. That was our first retaurant of our trip in scicilia and that was a very good start. The sympathic waiter show us the typical meal from the island.

Possibly the worst food I have eaten in Sicily. Definitely a tourist trap serving sub standard food to tourists too embarrassed to complain. This sort of place really doesn't do any favours for Sicily's reputation of a food destination. Avoid at all costs.
