Cozze are fresh and exceptionally local, picked outside the place. Unique recipe that we had is cozze with gorgonzola. The most famous are cozze tarantino. Great place, service and food!

It is an old restaurant with a long history. It was born as a small place for cleaning mussels and it is now the biggest place to eat in mazara. It can have up to 1000 guests over one night in summertime. Recently the traditional menu has expanded but I strongly recommend the classic mussels and octopus.

Quite the adventure - turned up just before 8:00pm with fifty people waiting outside and the doors not yet open. Did we need to book? How do we get a table? We don't speak much Italian and the owner starts to speak to the masses via microphone and assigning them tables in a pretty orderly fashion. We fumble our way... More

We stumbled (actually drove by) this place during a tour of the island with family. Something about the place looked "just right" and once we went inside and saw the others lunching on heaping bowls of mussels, we knew we were in the right place. The local lobster pasta was even better than the mussels! Humble surroundings with picnic style... More

My husband and I went to this here from the recommendation of a person we met on a day cruise on vacation. The view is beautiful right on the ocean and the restaurant is very casual. It was odd to me that such a beautiful location with a good reputation and has incredible orange and terrecotta colored tableclothes and then... More

Our landlord recommended this restaurant to us. We were there the first and the last evening of our stay. This is a popular place: Make a reservation or get there in time - otherwise you may need to queue! The seafood is FRESH! Our antipasti the first night was octopus (in Italian "polpo") - and that's what we got: The... More
