Excellent sicilian dishes cooked a couple of levels up from the routine. Fantastic selection of sicilian wines also. Slightly more expensive than the basic local restaurants but worth the extra.

In our one night in Agrigento we walked to the west end -- and I do mean the very end -- of via Aetena at the recommendation of our landlady and were pleased with Expanificio. Now this place, it did seem like the locals got somewhat more prompt service, but that being noted,we had a good meal here. In our... More

Our guide took us to Rosanna's restaurant ( what a cool lady ) she ran the restaurant so well everything was excellent, but, the food , that was outstanding, our only regret, was that we only had 1 night in Agrigento, to visit her faboulous restaurant.so many good choices, I can't stand anything out.

The food was creative and well prepared, the Hostess very nice, but the waitstaff seemed uninterested and a bit uptight. We were advised that tis characteristic was observed by others as swell. After a glass of Sicilian Wine it didn't matter! Enjoy some authentic cooking with good friends

Well worth a visit, on the edge of the old town. There was a good choice of Sicilian food, and the quality was all very good. Service was also fine. Bearing in mind that this was out of season, I would think that booking would be essential during busier periods. Recommended

recommended by the landlord of our B&B my traveling partners and I ordered an anti pasta, 2 pastas and 2 main courses, a local black grape wine and finished with a cous cous pistachio crema gelato desert. The anti pasta was a mix of juicy tasty fish, capers and orange slices that worked well together. The ravioli pasta was to... More

We visited expecting a standard restaurant and had earlier had a decent lunch. As a consequence, we were not particularly hungry when we went to dinner. This was a mistake. The menu is very good and the small orders we made were not up to what this place can do. Unlikely to be back in Agrigento as we are heading... More

We traveled from Southern Italy to Eastern Sicily and then to Agrigento. This restaurant best represented the change in diet. Here we met saffron, raisins, pine nuts and cous cous. The food here is wonderful. I highly recommend.
