Liked the look of this place as it was bright and busy although the only available table was on a bit of a slope in a busy back street. The staff were helpful and friendly, prices reasonable and the food good.

Stumbled across this lovely restaurant during an afternoon stroll and stopped for a quick beer, because the service was so good we decided to come back for our evening meal and what a great decision, lovely Sicilian cuisine and the same great service, highly recommend.
