We'd never have found this restaurant without our local extended family, who took us there after going up Mt Etna. We arrived at about 8pm and it was quiet, but the 12 of us soon changed that. We ordered a combination of 10 pizzas for everyone to pick from (more than enough for all of us, as they were huge - and really delicious) and together with drinks and a couple of Nutella pizzas for afters, the whole bill came to 150 euros, averaging about 7-8 euros a pizza! By the time we left at 10pm, the place was rammed and hopping, but no surprise there.

We were recommended this restaurant by the host of our B&B and decided to try it on our first night in Sicily. We both had pizzas and they were enormous and very good. With a bottle of beer and some wine the total cost was only about 25 EUR. We did actually go back again a few days later and even though the place was packed the waiter greeted us like we were locals.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a good location but just too busy to make dining there a relaxing experience. We had pasta which was excellent but way too much to leave space to try anything else. Tables are crammed in so that we were constantly being bumped into by other diners. Staff were pleasant but constantly running. We also felt rushed as they were desperate for us to vacate our table as the queue lengthened outside. Am sure it would be a much better experience on a quieter night.

I'm so surprised to see the comments here! Best value for money meal and possibly the best meal we've had in our stay in Sicily
BEST Pizza and Salad we had, amazing, huge portions and nice place, very local!
The only thing i didin't like was the steak, but i'm not going to let that lower my rating.
I would go back in a heartbeat!:)

Went here as it was rated number 1 on trip advisor but was disappointed.
Ordered a quarter 0.25l of house wine and got given 0.50l which was very cheap tasting so could only drink 0.25l of it anyway.

Food arrived very quickly within 5 minutes of ordering (2 x pizza) which were big portions but stodgy and bland tasting, both of us could only manage a half.

Waiters seemed rushed even though it was only half full and one dropped food onto me from a tray as he passed and didn't notice.
