Super view on the harbour and the other islands, especially at sunset you may enjoy smart drinks and soft talks, but also the evening is great . Enjoy it !

Because we saw the TV show with Jamie Oliver and this restaurant, we decided to stay on Marettimo for one night and eat at this restaurant but it was not as good as we expected. Also, we paid much more for our diner than the whole week in other places which had much better food as well.

We went few times for breakfast there, they have lovely sunny terrace with an amazing view! One day owner of the place ask if we would like to have dinner there and we did not regret, it was more than delicious! He served us 5 course dinner....and every dish was so original and simply amazing! We will definitely come back!
