Tried the pasta with salsiccia, gamberi, cream and pistachio which was a new dish I liked, my bf had the spaghetti vongole which was good but not the best either. Tried their home-made cassata which was amazing. Nice ambiance and polite staff. Worth a visit.

We ate here in our last night and were sad for not having discovered it earlier. Amazing polpettine / fish meatballs, fish pasta and the most delicious cassata I've ever tasted. All for a very decent price for the quality offered. We have one portion of polpettine, two pastas, 2 cassatine, 2 glasses of wine and water and we paid... More

We had a dinner the only night we spent on the island and were suggested this place by a local lady we met on the boat. Food was ok, I guess there are better places to eat, but the waiters were all very kind and warm, and the price absolutely fair. Suggested for a quick dinner!

Great place, for me the only reason to go is the appetizer platter. It is a great value if you like Italian island sushi. A few examples of local seafood specialties, either raw, or lightly cooked or marinated. Delicious! Good wine list.

When we arrived the restaurant was jam packed and all the staff were bombing around everywhere. Everything seemed to be moving at a 100 miles an hour. We felt a bit of an inconvenience during this busy time for the staff as we don't speak any Italian and we struggled to communicate with them. However every staff member was incredibly... More

We went in this restaurant many times. Almost every year, up to now, we went in Lampedusa and sometimes we went in this restaurant becuase the food was good and the staff and waiters were friendly. Sometimes the waiter asked to us to choice the same kind of pasta, but this is not a problem because is only for the... More
