One of the best meals we had in Sicily! The gnocchi were amazing! They even opened early for the weird Americans (us!). Friendly service, nice atmosphere.

Call for reservations. For 7 of us with appetizers, wine, pasta, pizza, and mussels it was 160euro. Wine was very good and you must try the mussels excellent!! Family friendly too! It does not have ac so it does get hot n muggy though.

Nested in the hills near the castle in Motta Is this great little pizzeria that demonstrates why small kitchens are the best. Great wait staff that is very patient. And the food quality and quantity was sufficient. Recommend the mussels in bread.

My group ordered the mussels as an appetizer. That was the highlight of my meal. Mussels bake in bread with an amazing sauce. I ordered a pizza, which was good, but nothing spectacular. The service was attentive and eager to help. Good food and service, probably the best in Motta.

Consistency is a pleasure! We have been here a number of times and usually stick with a pizza and bruschetta. Never disappointed! The staff always have a smile on their faces and we have always been able to count on a quiet night out at this location, although I'm sure it picks up quite a bit later in the evening.

Went thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews. Donna F provided the quality of Italian cuisine one expects from the Home Team. From the Bruchetta through the pasta to the pizza - all good. Three of us had three different dishes and shared around. Also, the house red wine was definitely drinkable and very cost effective - don't pass it up... More

Having lived in Italy for 9 years, I was surprised to find a restaurant with such disappointing food. The bruschetta was soggy, neither the ensalata caprese nor the pizza margarita had basil, and the spaghetti Vongole was flavorless with little sauce, making the pasta starchy and thick. I used to think it was difficult to get a sorry meal in... More

The pasta here is very nice! And the steak is not too bad also. They have a very good wine selection! It's a great place for couples and very romantic.

Someone recommended this restaurant, so we went there to check it out: the place is nice, clean, and has several dinning rooms, We were seated in one of the rooms, and then the waiter brought us some drink similar to Prosecco, then they asked what we wanted to eat, we ordered tagliatelle Scampi and my wife ordered Sword fish, the...
