Don't miss this one! Everything on the menu is fresh that day. Friendly family service. Inside, the grandpa was sitting with two of his grandkids. It's an amazing place and we loved the food!

This small restaurant is very busy and crowded. On the Sunday night that I came, they were taking names and cellphone numbers to call you back when your table was ready. The paper menu seems to change on a daily basis depending on the availability...of the fish or other products. I started with the “pomodorini ripieni” or stuffed little tomatoes; 2 small tomatoes stuffed with a breadcrumb, pine nuts and raisin mixture, then broiled. Delicious! For my main course, I tried the Orata a la planca or a Sea Bream oven roasted on a wood board. The skin was charred and slightly salty and the inside moist and tender, falling apart easily. What wasn’t easy was cleaning the fish from the thin bones inside. But my patience in being thorough paid off. I polished that fish off slowly. For a side dish, I requested the eggplant caponata which was on the antipasto menu. Also had a bottle of sparkling water and a half liter of table wine. I left very full and satisfied. Another great Lampedusan find!More

Located in Roma Street makes this restaurant easy to be found. We ordered fish (with soup), spaghetti with tuna and spaghetti with sardine and all of them had a great taste. Erg lekker. I came with my spouse so we shared (dividere) the three meals...for both of us. tips: the pictures of the food in tripadvisor always good for references and you can show it to the waiter if you don't know the name The service was nice but we had to wait for a long time until the food was served. At that night we came as the second guests, I think.More

I'm not sure how this place is rated so highly. This was the worst pasta i've had in Italy--limp and bland--mediocre by american standards even. The service was also not very friendly.
