Although it looked nice from the outside, that was everything that leaves a nice impression in here. The staff is so unpleasant that it leaves you speechless... when we asked for birra Morretti (which is EVERYWHERE in Sicily and its amazing), the waiter guy told us to buy that in a market store, here no, only Nastro Azzuro.

Really bad food, poor service, dirty, really bad waiters that were unfriendly when we criticised the "stake" with big blood vessels. Don't go here

Just across from the Hilton...dehors is nice and quite "design" for local standards. I can see how the music would be fun in the summertime, with the wide terrace and stylish (once again, for local stamdards) atmosphere. However, we just went for a pizza not wanting to take the car and even that was bad. The exact description would be:... More

Sorry, but the blond waitress was not sober. She couldn't speak much and seemed confused and sleepy. She told us that they didn't have pizza there, even though they had pizza at the next table. Go and spend Your money elsewhere. Lots of great restaurants in the area.

Very slow, disinterested and unfriendly staff. My pasta dish was too salty. My partner's pizza was impossible to cut with anything other than a chainsaw. We told the restaurant manager that we weren't happy to pay for the pizza which had hardly been touched, and he made a big scene in front of other customers. He brought the pizza back... More

We are still searching for good Sicilian food. The restaurant like this one is touristy and doesn't bring out that special flavour of the island. Their drink selection is very good and we had the best cocktails.
