..having been recommended by locals and TA. We have come to expect places with a TA "Certificate of Excellence" to be..well..'excellent'! This place is not. It's 'good'...just. The dishes we had (the mixed grill and linguine clams) were well cooked and tasty. But the ambiance was totally lacking...a grand pair of rooms but only three tables occupied (those on the... More

Our favorite seafood restaurant in the greater area of Pozallo. Traditionally furnished, very friendly staff. We enjoyed the perfectly prepared and fresh seafood (Our favorites: platter with assorted small seafood niblets, pan seared tuna (Tonno), or thegrilled fish platter, and an insalata mista as a side order), lovely Sizilian wine, and last but not least the very kind service. We'll... More

Now that my friends have arrived from Malta it's time to launch into our visit properly! The review of this Osteria was enticing and deservedly so! We were lucky enough to land the last and only unreserved table - the place was full of Sicilian families celebrating children's 1st Holy Communion parties. I started withe superb ravioli, hot, succulent with... More

We went to Tonno Rosso on a wet Thursday night and, unsurprisingly, found the restaurant very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. I ordered the mixed grill comprised of a swordfish steak, a whole sea bream and two large langoustine. I also enjoyed a large plate of grilled vegetables.... More

Food was delicious! We each had the fish antipasti starter (I had cooked version, my husband had the raw version). Well worth it, followed by some delicious nice fresh fish. Service was also excellent. The only down side is that the restaurant is way too bright - they should turn the lights down to create a nicer setting.

Had low expectation of Pozzallo as a location but the square in which the restaurant is set is very scenic and makes an excellent backdrop for dinner. The seafood starter signature dish was exceptional and well presented and the fish main courses fresh and well cooked. Our only problem was consuming the sheer volume of food

Have the mixed starter!! The ravioli was excellent. Pudding great too. Friendly and helpful staff with excellent English ' menu support' The place to come for a 'special' night in Southern Sicily. Reserve to guarantee a seat on the terrace.

This was the first restaurant we visited on our southern Sicily holiday ...and what a way to start! Newly opened - the restaurant had recently moved from its previous position 2 weeks previously... The restaurant is now housed in a beautiful building overlooking the piazza in Pozallo. We were fortunate to have booked a table outside on the balcony.... The... More

I ate at here at Osteria Il Tonno Rosso during my first visit to Pozzalo, Sicily. The appetizer was one of most beautiful and thoughtfully created seafood dishes I have ever had before. We were presented with an elegant assortment of various fish paired with unique textural and flavor combinations. Our waiter spoke English well gave a very detailed description... More

I made my first trip out to Pozzallo, Sicily this summer and I was blown away with the food at Osteria Il Tonno Rosso. I have eaten at many fine restaurants throughout America and Europe and I can honestly say that this was my favorite Seafood place. I wish that they would open up a second location in California so... More
