Admittedly we DID arrive latish, around 2.30 for lunch, but they DID say there was no problem with ordering. The first courses were decent, nothing wow, but to the standard I would expect from a half-decent Sicilian restaurant. Main courses were another story: my fried calamari were definitely nothing to write home about and my friends' (all 3 of them)... More

To me this restaurant epitomises the best of Italian/Sicilian cooking; it's all about quality fresh ingredients treated simply and left to speak for themselves. The service was also exemplary; professional and efficient without being overbearing. Price is not cheap but it is fair. To sum up I couldn't fault this establishment and hope to return.

Great food and ambiance. On the beach, very romantic. Really nice and helpful staff. However, the prices are too high for Sicily level.

We (italian couple) ate a primo and a secondo, two bottles of water for 40€. Not cheap, but sooo good. The fish was very well cooked and the homemade fresh pasta just left us speechless. All the staff was very kind and gave us personal suggestions. Top service, top food, beautiful view of the sea right in front. Loved the... More

Went there from the beach. Starters were best ever in Sicily. Straight seafood-menu with nice white wine and perfect main. Definitely worth a second visit!

Amazing trattoria right on the water. Everything was super fresh and service was fantastic. Had lunch and dinner here and everything on the menu is amazing. Definitely don't miss the antipasti marinati, couscous, any whatever is the pescato Del giorno. And for dessert we had the mouse, canolo and parfait mandorle and all 3 were top notch. Hardest thing here... More

It is good to find a restaurant that does seafood really well and Trattoria da Carmello does. Don't be put off by the plastic chairs as the food is excellent.

Good food. Probably could do with a couple more wait staff as service was slow to start with. Would I return - Yes.

It is pricey in comparison to other restaurants but I had an amazing dish which I really enjoyed, It was the fish cous-cous, which is a Sicilian specialty. I have had cous-cous in France, in Moroccan restaurants but this fish cous cous was nothing like it. On the beach, so nice ambiance, lots of parking, many locals dined there too.... More
