This restaurant was recommended by our B&B Garibaldi. It was delicious. The pasta was homemade and so, so, good. We would have gone there again if we didn't have such a short stay in Messina. I would highly recommend this restaurant when in Messina, especially since it's close to Garibaldi B&B, which I also highly recommend.

We happened to be in Messina since our cruise ship was docked there. It was the week if the Italian summer holidays so the city was quite dead. We were looking for typical Sicilian food. This place was recommended to us. Reasonable prices for a good selection of typical dishes. The quality was very good and the atmosphere perfect. We knew we had picked a good place when we greeted the head chef of our cruise ship at the neighboring table!!

We avoided the city centre with all the touristic traps and we came here at the recommendation of TripAdvisor. Nice place, good food, friendly staff and service. Definitely worth going to.

Excellent Sicilian meal, shared mixed Sicilian antipasto, thank goodness as huge but delicious. My wife had lovely linguine with calamari and langoustines whilst I had Nero a sepia accompanied with excellent house Rosso. Good value at less than €40.

My girlfriend and I visited Il Siciliano for lunch yesterday as it was recommended by a local as a great place to try traditional Sicilian cuisine.
We shared a mixed starter, the Misto Sfizi, which had a selection of the local starters.
This was a taste sensation!
The Aubergine cake? (layers of aubergine and cheese type of flan) was stunning, as was the courgette version and the French bean starter.
This is defintely worth trying, however it is far too much for one person!

We had the fresh macaroni with shrimp and salmon (maccheroni freschi con gamberetti e salmone) as a main.
This again was very good, the dish was very flavoursome and again was a huge portion.

We will be definitely coming back here to try the rest of the menu!
