Fabulous little restaurant, great fresh seafood and pasta. Capputedda, baby fried squid starter is beautiful, even my two year olds tucked in and just so simple but wonderful. Pasta all lovely. Great (cheap) house wine. Make sure you book.

The food is typical Sicilian and wonderful, fresh, tasty, full of the famous Sicilian flavors like orange, capers and pistachio. Plates of different types of fresh seafood and vegetables were a joy to savor.
