We visited this restaurant after reading previous reviews. It took over 20mins to get a drink, my partners pizza arrived but mine was wrong. After waiting another 20mins mine arrived but was burnt. Service was bad as when I mentioned I was not happy staff shrugged their shoulders, no apology or discount given. will not be returning for sure!

This restaurant was very good for people who like local food (e.g. Pasta ect) the staff where ok but the food as I say was great!! The restaurant offers alfresco seating (so you can see the sea and the beach) and this restaurant has a service charge (but they give you bread to start)

Menu is mostly fish based but the meat is great! I had some lamb cutlets and they were wonderful. Staff is great and very professional. We were treated like family.

Discovered this excellent Restaurant, unfortunately too late at the end of our week in Letojanni. Here was, by far, the best dinner we had in Letojanni. Everything we ordered was excellent-swordfish, one of the best I've had, perfectly prepared, extremely fresh and really generous portion. Pizzas are outstanding-and gigantic! Pastas, typical Sicilian, and wonderful. Service was friendly, professional and very... More

We tried this restaurant half way through our week for lunch. The waiter was very welcoming and arranged a table with shade outside. He was very attentive and went through the menu with some recommendations. The food was very tasty and we were very happy with everything. We returned for our last night for dinner and I can honestly say... More

This place seemed very nice with a lovely seafront view and among the tens of restaurants situated along the seafront of Letojanni, we decided to go here after da Nino's was fully booked. It was actually the owner of da Nino who suggested we come here, since it's his son's restaurant. We enjoyed it, nothing worth mentioning other than the... More

We went here for a last night treat but went home very disappointed. We weren't the only ones, tourists and locals alike were waiting a long time for service and food. When the food did arrive my main course was terribly salty; we didn't bother with dessert. The restaurant is on the beach, a lovely setting, however, that didn't make... More

We were disappointed by our visit to this restaurant, the staff are unwelcoming and tended to serve Italians before other visitors. The starter came ok, but we were brought white wine when we ordered red! Then the pizza arrived but no lasagne. I was quarter through the pizza when the lasagne arrive cold! I gave it back to the waiter... More
