This is a great restaurant just behind the main promenade in Milazzo. The service was excellent and very professional. The food was very tasty and the wine was excellent. We dined outside and the atmosphere was terrific. It gets very busy so remember to arrived early or try making a reservation.

I went here at the hotels recommendation and I can say that you will be delighted by the typical sicilian scenery of a little family run business with moderate prices and almost exquisite food. Myself, I recomand pasta con cozze. The only bad thing that I can say is that your clothes will reek of food after the visit because... More

I arrived at this restaurant, which was recommended by my hotel, about 10pm, not particularly late in this island. I spoke in Italian and responses came back in English. I asked that Italian be used as I live in Italy but throughout the evening I was constantly bombarded with English menu and spoken to in English. Service was poor and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel. However we found that it was very average but the surroundings were very poor. Poor lighting.

Family driven, extraordinary food. Every additional word unnecessary. Try it, you will be convinced, given you know what makes the difference. Small point of criticism: instead of wine cooler you get a very sophisticated, open bottle holder, which is expected to cool. Suggestion: back to natural ice :) Nevertheless, the best surprise in eating in Sicily until today.

We went here for a pizza as we'd seen a pizza menu for the restaurant in our nearby hotel. Once we got in & saw the menu & the availability of fresh fish we realised pizza may have been "under-doing" the place! We had excellent friendly service with great food and reasonably priced drinks. We sat out in a packed... More

We were in a hotel near by (Il Principe) and decided to try the closest restaurant for our evening meal. That was a good choice. The restaurant seemed local, but had menus in English as well. We had first thought that we would try their pizza (they have a special wood fired oven), but a look at the menu made... More
