Go for the Etna Rosso (I've had wine 3 x expensive without the taste), the waiter is superb, and the food is cheap and fantastic. A real sicilian chowdown, tip the guy well (he'll treat you with some Limoncello)! Great memories were made here

Great food and service. Best food out of three that we had and we went to the top three on the list. No sea view but well worth it as cosy and not next to the traffic. Round the corner from the main square.

One of few places that have classic sicilian pizza. All made in traditional way, with local products (anchovies, aubergines, etc), baked in a traditional wood burning stove. Like food staff is pleasant. However, that the restaurant is closed for lunch time restricting us to eat...More

Simple menu, all the Italian classics, but very well cooked. Best Carbonera ever. Good pizzas, good wines, very pleasant staff.
