This is an old eating house with a long history on the main street Vitt. Emanuele a few 100m down from the Cathedral. Pleasant quiet place with stylish service. I had a plate full of diverse antipasta from the buffet, delicious involtini of swordfish (I promised myself I would make those at home), a cassata, ½ bottle of wine and... More

Homely local food in an intimate restaurant, Friendly service and delicious pasta. 2 small rooms , simple decor with photos of past patrons on the wall. I had first course of fried local cheese with herbs and aubergine pasta while my partna had sardine pasta and bread crumbed veal. We were too full to sample desert.

Food is delicious, staff are lovely, menu is truly Sicilian. Very elegant deco but traditional. Waiter is multi languages and very service oriented.

I walked in without a reservation at Sunday lunchtime. The restaurant was not very crowded so they seated me immediately. The staff was very friendly. They have menus in English and Italian. I ordered a fantastic piece of cheese, grilled with vinegar and oregano. And then I had pasta with sea urchin pulp. Both were delicious. It's a small restaurant... More

I had such high hopes of this restaurant but sadly it failed to deliver. The first big worry was when we walked into to a virtually silent restaurant. Not because it was empty, just zero ambience. The staff were very welcoming but that waned over the course of the meal. The menu is limited and nothing really jumped out as... More

Obviously a restaurant steeped in history, and renowned to locals - the photos attested to that. Authentic, tasty Sicilian cuisine. Great range of antipasti in the buffet. Boiled veal with green sauce was delicious. Citron sorbet actually tasted creamy due to fine texture of shaved ice! Highly recommended!

Party of 3 adults, we had a nice evening, especially enjoyed the waiter and his attention, but we all found the food to be just average in terms of taste; portions were adequate.
