Our hotel recommended this hotel. They knew we wanted risotto. They did not disappoint. Al mare and another with asparagus. Fantastic!!

We visited for dinner tonight from hotel's suggestion. We arrive and seat inside to give us a quiet room. We checked their menu from website and ourside menu. It's not great. However, after we sit down and have restaurant menu. The menu had a good selection of food. We had sea urchin paste(excellent cooking ), scampi paste (if the scampi skin is taken off , it will be better ), beef fillet with foie gras (yummy ) and veal which cooked perfectly. We had the most amazing tiramisu( it is just so simple, but excellent dessert) and chocolate fondant. The food here feels like home cooking Sicilian food than fancy restaurant. If you would like its concept, you will be in love with their food.

Recommended in a guide book we went here tonight for our friends birthday meal. Quite busy and it became obvious that if you were 'known' to the staff you got the service, other than that you waited. We weren't that hungry so we opted for risottos and a fried calamari, which came eventually. Ok but nothing great. Eventually as we weren't offered it I had to ask for the dessert menu and chose crepes. They came flambeed but not at the table and they were undercooked with raw batter in the middle. Expensive and not worth it - go a but further on to Al Duomo and get a fabulous meal much cheaper.

Was recommended by some people from the hotel. Nice atmosphere in a garden setting.
Presentation of food great....taste....average. Service was lacking....too many tables...not enough help.
