The authentic Sicilian cuisine served here is market fresh and satisfying, despite the restaurant's slight touristic bent (the waiters, for example, appear with red bandannas and sashes like those worn by the Saracen pirates of yore). In good weather, try to get a table set under grapevines in the old courtyard. Otherwise, you'll find the air-conditioned seats inside a welcome relief from the heat. The pizzas are among the best in town -- try the "Drago," with spicy sausage. Tempting pastas include one with hot peppers (all'arrabbiata) and another with shrimp, mushrooms, and a dousing of limoncello. The best bet is the catch of the day, which the chefs flavor with herbs and grill to your specifications.
