We arrived late (11.30pm) and they kindly prepared a table. The service was great and the food was greater than average in Sicily.

Solid and authentic local food at a fair price. A very good wine selection although not served at the right temperature. The good quality of the food offsets the small and maybe not the best located terrace. If I were back in Agrigento, I'd definetely go there again.

We had dinner here tonight and were disappointed. I ordered the Cavatelli al Cartoccio which was cooked well enough, but it tasted very much like a can of Heinz spaghetti and I could not identify any eggplant or basil which were on the list of ingredients. He ordered the Turbot with tomatoes, capers, lemon and orange; of the two pieces... More

This place was suggested to us by our hotel and we went there for dinner. We were a family of 5 (with older children). Although the food was tasty and it was a bit pricey and service was very poor. When we asked for white wine suggestions, we were suggested the most expensive red wine. When saying again that we... More

We had marvelous dinner in Expanificio. Sitting in the terrace in a summer evening is perfect. Food was delicious; Caponata and sardines pasta was very good. For dessert we had great Cassata Siciliana. A must place if you are in Agrigento.

I was in Agrigento a couple of weeks ago and my friend Gianluca (he is from Agrigento) brought us here to have the last dinner of a wonderful trip. He said it was the best place in town and he was completely right. Expanificio offers a combination of traditional sicilian food but with an original and modern touch that will... More

Wonderful fresh fish and seafood served outdoors in a pleasant setting. I had a gigantic plate of very fresh mussels in a wonderful, simple broth. The seafood pastas are also great and service very good. A great value, too.

Recommended by our B&B, we had a good meal at this small osteria in the premises of an old bakery. We shared a plate of mixed antipasti, followed by two pasta dishes, one with sardines, which was particularly good and excellent house wine.
