Enjoyed the antipasto as well as the pasta all pesto siciliano though a but t less cooking of the pasta would have been better. Excellent & courteous service. Will come back.

Recommended if one wants to experience a local Sicilian meal. Excellent meal and value for money...no wonder restaurant was full...busy days better to book ahead.

Great place for lunch. Simple fresh fare and local dishes. Full of Italian families. Not too much English which we take as a good sign.

We reserved a table for dinner on a Saturday evening and specifically asked if they had fresh Porcini mushrooms; the answer was positive.

The experience was so unpleasant that I don't remember what we had. I do remember that It was hard to chew, that the veal had more crumbs than meat. The wine tasted like vinegar. It wasn't cheap considering we hardly touched the food.
