I really enjoyed being sat here with my husband watching the whole go by and enjoying some italian style street food. We ordered the boneless fish cone and the Arancini-both were delicious! Wine and beer also very good.

This place is great, it offers very tasty lunch snacks at an affordable price. Worth a visit. So why only 4 out 5 points? Plastics! Be more environment-friendly guys and replace these plastic containers with something reusable!

Nothing better than havibg a “cartoccio” overlooking the hustle and bustle of the Fish Market, or in the evening. Fresh fish and seafood fried to perfection. A must!

We fry the best typical products of the Sicilian tradition on the spot, using only sunflower oil with added natural antioxidants extracted from rosemary for a crispy, light and tasty deep-fry. Prepared in full respect of the long-standing Sicilian traditions. Every sip of our drinks contain ancient recipe ingredients that have belonged to our culture for over 2500 years.
