We went to this lovely restaurant after a long day. All we want was a little thing to eat and falling asleep. But... A magical food, magic owner and his magical cooking wife. Felt different. After we eat the best sea mix ever for the starters we start to feel the magic. After the pasta (the ravioli !!!) we feel... More

We got here after visiting the wonderful villa Adriana and had a very nice surprise. The restaurant has an open air space in the back and we had lunch there. We got spaghetti with sardines and cherry tomatoes: very good. My mate got strozzapreti with olives and another kind of fish: very good as well. The owner is friendly and... More

I found this restaurant for chance and i didn't even know they serve sicilian food. So it was a nice surprise since i love sicily and its food! I was a bit in hurry, i had a starter and pasta dish (great!) but i must go back to taste more.

After being stranded at a nearby hotel this restaurant was recommended and we can't fault anything. The food was fabulous, the atmosphere was warm and friendly and our hosts were truly wonderful. If ever we were in the area again we would most definitely visit this restaurant.

Out last night in Italy bought us to this restaurant which was a great choice. The young lady that run front of house was fabulous! Explained what the meals were and was a delight to talk to! The food was as good as any that we had in Italy from Venezia to Rome to Manfredonia. An excellent shared plate of... More

The service was very nice. We were given an entrance cocktail. The food was tasty although it was in small quantity. The restaurant itself is quite dark and although its bright outside there arent enough windows.

We found this on T/A and it lived up to other reviews. We had a wonderful meal and little extras to try which were delicious. The wine was superb, our starter especially the vegetables, our pasta and the desserts. The staff were excellent. For us who own and run a restaurant it is wonderful to have a meal that is... More

We had an excellent and reasonably price meal here during our stay at a nearby hotel. The Sicilian desserts are scrumptuous, and the wine list is quite complete. The neighborhood is modern and rather charmless, but who's looking. The maitre d' (owner?) was gracious and full of good recommendations.

We were just passing through and saw this restaurant had great reviews. It really is yummy! The table bread was fresh (which I found is quite rare lately). The balsamic and oils they brought out were beautiful. The pasta was cooked to perfection and is handmade on the premises. The salad leaves were crisp and the desert was great too.... More
