We sent two of our daughters to Chef Torrisi's cooking class. He was a wonderful teacher and so very kind to my girls. He took them shopping at the local market and then they made a delicious lunch in his restaurant. We went back the next day for lunch and Lele made us a very special meal. He is a... More

This is a restaurant that is a bit hard to find, but it's worth it! We were very well taken care of, the food was fantastic as well as the wine suggestions. We started to speak to the couple next to our table and the staff noticed and treated us as a group of people after a while, not as... More

As others have said, it took a while to find it but it was worth the effort. Against a wonderful, mellow jazz soundtrack, we were served delicious food by staff that were clearly passionate about the food too. The menu was typically Sicilian, but it was one of the best meals we had whilst we were in Sicily. Really excellent... More

We were greeted at the door, escorted to our table and the waiter explained the daily menu. The choices depend on what is available in the markets that day. The sardines were delicious. Every meal was exceptional in taste and quantity. The staff were very informative and friendly - wonderful atmosphere. We would definitely not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

This little restaurant , is tucked away up a narrow alley. It took some finding, it was worth the effort.

The food here was very good and we would certainly do it again. The only complaint would be it seemed a bit slow for service. The food was worth the wait though :-)
