Good food, service can be better

The food was really good, but the service sometime was a bit low: do not ask for suggestion or for information about the food, as the waitresses are not really willing to tell you much. We had similar experience in the same area... not sure if it is just culture. A part from the service, the... read more

Very good food and wine in tasteful surroundings. The only irritating thing, but this goes for all sicilian restaurants, are the opening hours 12 to 2 and 19.30h-. Its easy to miss lunch when you re out enjoying the beautiful valley of the temples. And families with small children might find it hard to wait till 19.30h for dinner. We... More

We dined twice at Expanificio while in Agrigento and were very pleased with both meals. Their careful selections of all Sicilian ingredients shines throughout. The produce, seafoods, meats, cheeses, olive oil, wines and sundries are all superlative as is the service and cookery. You truly can't go wrong here if you enjoy fine regional food cooked with respect to tradition... More

This is the first restaurant we ate in during our short trip through Sicily, and it was also the best one. I especially loved the swordfish steak on cous cous bed, the fish was cooked at perfection. For a starter + main course + desert + wine for 2 persons we paid something like 75 Euros, which was pretty fair... More

Visited on a recommendation by our B and B. First night experience was outstanding, especially the food. High quality preparation and presentation of imaginative local dishes. The negative aspect to the evening was the below-par service offered by the "young fellows". Plates removed before we had both finished eating, and a general "presence" and "hovering", creating a feeling that our... More

We had probably our best meal in Sicily at this price point. Great fresh seafood, tasty pasta, and the wonderful couscous-based dessert that should be a must. The evening was marred by the presence of a supremely annoying couple of English-folks who complained non-stop about a dish they had ordered that was missing one of the ingredients listed in the...

This was our first dinner out at the start of 2 weeks holiday. A tiny individual lasagne with boar meat and Kobe beef in Stroganoff style . The most tasty food I have had in years! Jugs of local wine - so cheap and so good. She had pasta and very good grilled 3 thick slices of tuna but too... More
