The location of this restaurant was a short and pleasant walk from our B&B. The interior is cozy. We shared a couple of first courses - the mushroom and potato timbales and skewers of sardines. For the main courses we had swordfish in Sicilian style (palermitana swordfish with savory breadcrumbs), grilled stuffed lamb, and eggplant caponata with rosemary potatoes. Desserts... More

I had dinner with my sister, I let her taste my dish, it seems that at some point the waiter took us for two lesbians and refused to serve us, or at least he was doing like we were not there, I never seen that before. !

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
