Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant is superb even though we made the mistake of not getting the Tasting Menu and the owner, Salvatore, was kind enough to fit us in for lunch. Alas due to a family mishap we missed this reservation with much regret and apologies to...him and his fantastic staff. No one should miss the opportunity to enjoy this fine food!More

We came for a nice Saturday dinner. Reception ok but the food was badly cooked . We had hopes to enjoy lobster ravioli. It was not cooked long enough, was dry and tasted old. No taste of neither crab nor lobster (lobster norvegicus)

The mixed grilled seafood was the freshest I’ve had in a long time. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was excellent. Friendly owners and staff. Highly recommend!

For starters the tuna with sesame was quite alright; however, we had seafood risotto as a main dish - quite disappointing, low quality taste And products considering the 16 euro per person. Same with the dessert - it tasted flat And artificial. The staff were...quite friendly, though.More

Friendly good service. We went on a Monday night (full) but they are not always open that night and they kept in touch with us when they decided that they would. The 20 small plate menu was enough food for us and included several outstanding...dishes and, as in anything like this, a few less so but we enjoyed it all. Good wines at fair prices. Popular so need a reservation. Mainly Italian guests which is usually a good sign. Convivial atmosphere and very nice outside seating. The location is easy to find.More

After trying many restaurants around Tellaro, we found this very nice and friendly restaurant. Our first visit we decided to try the menu degustazione tasting menu of 20 various small plates, which is more than enough before going on with other dishes. Honest prices with...good value for money. The owner and his son very helpful and friendly. We went back another 2 times A must to visit, you won't be disappointed.More

Fish restaurant, nice terrace with a seaside view . Reservation is a must even days in advance in the high season. Fish is very well cooked but waiters rather too hasty in serving you, as they needed to free your table for the next customer....A little too expensive, all considered.More

Very disappointing experience. After we ordered drinks, the waiter informed us that half of the menu was not available. As we chose this restaurant because of the vegetarian-friendly menu, we had to order some appetizers, which were very small and expensive. After the food we...felt that they wanted to quickly get rid of us, as they only calculate 1 hour per dinner party (had dinner booking at 8pm, they had the next one at 9pm). Coming from Switzerland we are used to expensive dinners, however this was by far way too expensive when thinking about the few bites and the awful wine they served us. Staff was friendly, but super stressed.More

Nice place with a good view on the sea. Friendly staff, good selection of food, both sea and land. We tried three different choices and two especially good, the “Spaghetti allo scoglio” good but can be improved, the “fritto misto” and “pescato del giorno (fresh...daily fish)” simply excellent. Desserts also in line, to try again next timeMore

A busy restaurant recommended by our host. We had the lobster ravioli and fried fish and a nice local white wine. A lot of locals were having the tasting menu and perhaps we should have tried that.

Visited on a Sunday lunchtime in November on a short break to Italy for a few days from the UK. Lovely looking restaurant from outside - very pretty. Menu looked good as well. We were warmly welcomed and the restaurant was very warm and cosy...on a nice but chilly Sunday afternoon. Three of us myself, husband and son had lovely pasta dishes - husband and son thoroughly enjoyed the spaghetti with fish and my spaghetti with tomato was very tasty. Accompanied with lovely wine and lovely fresh bread. Highly recommend this restaurant and when next in this lovely town this will be our preferred place to eat.More

We ordered the tasting menu which was a bunch of small dishes at a time rather than a well though through menu of tastes. It was fully booked the day before and had gotten good reviews so we thought it would at least be somewhat...good. Unfortunately, we got super disappointed and left most of the food behind. The fish was dry and the composing of tastes just felt completely off. The tasting menu was pretty cheap though, but for what it was, I would never pay money for that type of food. However, the service was really good and the head waiter was super nice. But I’m sad to say, that was it for this restaurant experience.More

We decided to eat at this restaurant after reading great reviews online but unfortunately didn’t have a reservation so we made a call and spoke to the owner Salvatore who said they were fully booked and we could maybe try much later in the evening....We arrived at 8.30pm and found that although there were no tables available, and the restaurant was packed, Salvatore without asking had already made a reservation for us at 9.30pm! We had a quick drink in Tellaro and came back to the restaurant one hour later to find an even bigger queue however Salvatore recognised us immediately and within 5 minutes had brought a bottle of Prosecco and some home made farinata to a table outside to say thank you to all of the people in the queue who had clearly also been waiting a long time too. What a nice touch! The food was great, the wine was cheap, and the atmosphere was very friendly throughout. We would definitely recommend this place - but you should try to book in advance!More
