Fodor's Review

At this casual tavern conveniently located in the streets right behind the Castello Maniace, you can sit back and enjoy both land-based and seafood dishes. The surroundings are studiously minimalist (no tablecloths, leather mats) and dishes are served on hand-painted ceramic ware. A major plus is that you can order half portions of several pasta dishes. As a secondo, try the unusual pesce in crosta di patate (grilled fish in a potato crust), but leave space for

the special tiramisu agli agrumi (with citrus fruit).
