The large courtyard allows you to spend a quiet evening with friends. All the dishes have been chosen, well-assorted hors d'oeuvres, tender meat from the scallops and plenty of cous cous. Bottled wine deserves more attention, poor assortment of whites, red at oven temperature rather...More

Fantastic atmosphere with gnocchi and pizzas to die for. The pizzas are enormous so order carefully if you have children or a small appetite. You can always box up and have lunch the following day.

Wanted to eat early, before 9pm, and this had customers at 7.30. Very friendly staff, excellent large pizza and good value. Given complimentary sweet wine and bics at the end - nice touch.

This place serves delicious typical Sicilian food. We enjoyed the unique menu that was served for Ferragosto. Service was really slow due the crowd, but the restaurant didn't feel like it was crowded, as it is roomy. Antipasti, primo, meat, dessert, all was delicious, but...More
