We dismissed this restaurant initially because if it's location under the busy SS which passes along the coast in Porto Empedocle. It is a huge square building with bright lights and, I imagine, not much to absorb the sound when busy. It was not busy when we were there so the building seemed cavernous.

The food, however, is another matter. We had huge starters of local antipasti and another of fish. The fish fish contained cockles mussels octopus shrimp cocktail and other things I didn't recognise but were delicious. For mains we just had calzone which again was perfect. For under €50 including wine we thought it was excellent value.

So despite the setting give it a try.

Decided to take the kids for a pizza. Ordered 2 pizzas and a fillet steak ( medium) with peppercorn sauce. 1/4 of red wine and a bottle of water. A complimentary drink was served on arrival.
Red wine was served chilled ( we are in November) ....and it was off ..turned to vinegar. Notified the waiter, who quickly changed it.
Pizzas came out, looking and smelling delicious.
Fillet came out.. small portion, swimming in a cream sauce with a few peppercorns... overcooked and tough and about 1cm in height....had my doubts it was fillet. Ate it all, but was starving afterwards, and started eyeing the kids pizza...
Service was very good and efficient.
If i was to come back, it would only be for a quick pizza.

After sharing an average starter, my wife and I both had varieties of seafood pasta. The small portions appeared to contain langoustine in one and king prawns in the other, but this proved to be just decorative heads, with no actual meat. The manager explained that the meat was cut very small and was in the sauce. It was not discernable, so it seemed we paid €10 each for a small portion of pasta in tomato sauce.
