Small family restaurant. Unassuming from the outside but excellent quality. We went for the raw (crudo) starters, followed by lobsters and in my case sword fish with mint and egg plant. Family then went for desserts and I took a frittura as “secondo”. In short, it was all super fresh, beautifully presented and delicious

We got the raw and hot platter for a starter, were average, wouldn’t recommend. We ordered most of the pastas on the menu. I would recommend the spaghetti with clams and bottarga

We just jumped in from autostrada, to find some nice place to eat. Food is very good, with that "like home but better" effect. Very nice stuff and mix of jazz that took me for a lazy afternoon. Are you in neighborhood? You have to visit that place!

Our dining experiences in Sicily since arriving 6 days ago haven’t been what we’d expected due to a combination of factors. We were (perhaps unrealistically) hoping that the meal at the highly rated Ristorante Il Sarchiapone would surprise on the upside. It didn’t.

Guided by the friendly waitress, we ordered an antipasto of fish. Though distinctly remembering that we ordered one plate of the entree to share, two large plates arrived comprising of morsels of fried, frittered and creamed seafood in various shapes and colours.

The entree was far from satisfactory with much of it seeming like leftovers. The entree would’ve been enough but we were enticed by the waitress to order main courses as well. I ordered tuna with pistachio which was nothing more than diced tuna lightly crumbed in pistachio. My partner had tuna in a spicy sauce. This came as a thick tuna steak which he found inedible being red raw right through. We left our mains half uneaten and struggled to finish the bottle of Chardonnay - again a glass each would’ve sufficed. Needless to say we didn’t have any desserts. The meal came up to €88 - which is a hefty price to pay for a meal in a small town. Still, the restaurant had a lovely ambience despite the strains of passé American jazz standards in the background. And the staff were friendly and eager to please....

The venue is located in the center of Capo d´Orlando. Parking on the street is possible. The restaurant is distributed over two sites, separated by 50 m. The first location is indoor seating only. The second one is outside seating only. The place is packed so making a reservation is a good idea. The menus is two pages but really sufficient. Try the antipasti, they are awesome. I had Spaghetti with Sepia and Involtini Mare which were really good. The vino de la Casa is cheap and good. The service, in English too, is very kind and charming.
