The pizza was big, prices bit high (pizza starting from 8eur to 12€). The terrace is very close to the road so it is a bit noisy with car and motorcycle rumble if you want to enjoy the see view.

Had dinner here for family of 15! Very casual mod priced restaurant. We enjoyed great service and food was very good. Order the local Sicilian Foods (Seafood/Shellfish/Pastas)! Local Italian street singers/musicians came by adding to the local experience!
