There is outdoor space where we could sit, relax and eat. The owner was friendly and helpful. Riposto itself is a small and less touristy town then elsewhere along the coast (which we liked) but has a good range of restaurants and food shops. It is also a great location for visiting Etna, Taormina, Catania, etc

There were five chairs and a smallish dining table. Also the amount of crockery and cutlery was just about OK for our five very simple breakfasts, but self-catering for any other meals would have been fairly difficult. However, the whole place was very clean and the beds comfortable. The location was great with a lovely sea view and was within the little village of Torre d'Archirafe, where we ate every night in the couple of nice local restaurants. We had a rental car and used it every day to get to beaches and visit other places. The shore below our apartment was difficult to access the sea from for some of us because of the large pebbles, so we sought beaches with sand or smaller pebbles which were fine. Overall, it was really lovely, thank you Dino. Le regazze!
