The quaint restaurant serves delicious, fresh Sicilian food (the chocolate flan [like a soufflé or pudding-cake] was unparalleled in deliciousness!) and the service was friendly and conscientious yet relaxed. We stayed at the hotel for ten nights and ate at the restaurant nearly every day! The steaks are mouthwatering and pasta al-dente.

Cristina, the absolutely lovely, friendly proprietor, suggested items which were not on the menu which the chef could make: I cannot recommend the Pistachio Ravioli highly enough!!! We would ask to change the pasta or mix up sauce combinations with no complaint but we definitely had favourite dishes: we ate the steak with rocket at least four times; and in order to enjoy more variety my husband would order a steak, me a pasta and then have half of each! The prawn & asparagus pasta (we had with penne) was delicious as was the peppercorn steak. And my mouth grieved when we left and I could no longer have the chocolate flan I had enjoyed no less than six times!

For added luxury, during the day, we enjoyed many lunches by the perfectly-clear, clean, bright pool.

Note: if your expectations meet with this place, it could give you a very pleasent stay. First, you need to have a car and navi because the place is located literally in the middle of nothing and you want to visit the centrum of Capo d'Orlando nearby. Secondly, this is a perfect place for couples who look for a "peace of mind" type of detachment. The hotel grounds and the pool are really and nice and the staff warm and kind - however they do not speak English. If you are looking a nice and clean place - with a pool - outside of cities and tourist spots, this is the place. Thirdly, there may be private events of local people, such as birthday parties or weddings, and since the place is quite intimate and small (only 7 rooms) you will be influenced by them. The nearby town (app. 15 min by car) is full of posh shops and nice looking family restaurant and its streets and apartments look strangely new and clean by the local standards. There are also numerous reataurants, which fact we only found out coincidentally while driving around in the last evening. However, the hotel also provides compatible dinners nicely set up at the pool. If you take into consideration that there is not that much else to do there and that you cannot really access the surroundings by foot, this can be a beautiful and peaceful spot to stay for a few days.
