Our favorite restaurant in the City of Agrigento was the L'Ambasciata di Sicilia (The Sicilian embassy) located at the corner of via Atenea and via Giambertoni. Since via Atenea is a winding up-hill street the Embassy is an excellent spot to stop and relax with a cup of espresso or other refreshment. Via Giambertoni is a very narrow side street... More

We ate there two nights in a row. Excellent local cuisine. The seafood was very fresh, and the portions were huge. It is a small place, and quite popular, so come early, or late, or be prepared to wait a bit.

Recommended by our hotel, this restaurant proved to be a real gem. An outside terrace with a sea view is very nice. We were lucky to get a table, as it quickly filled up. The food was excellent, the service very friendly and we left this place very happy indeed. Try this restaurant while in Agrigento.

We asked for a mix plate of starters with different cheeses, hams and olives, and two dishes of pasta and it was really good, the place looks typical and it has a nice place to eat outside. It was the only place in sicily where we found someone who spoke good english, the waitress Claudia. It was an average price... More

We found this place whilst walking past it to the far end of town and were attracted by the wonderful smell of the cooking. We then met a couple from our tour group further on who commented that they were going to give it a try as well because they were likewise impressed by it. We only had a single... More

The place has a well-located terrace with panoramic view to the sea. We just had lunch here, tried a starter plate, which was big enough for 2 people, pasta with ricotta and eggplants and spaghetti with clams. Everithing was extremely delicious, fresh and came in big portions. Prices are reasonable, staff was friendly, very good impression in general.

The restaurant has a nice terrace but we ended up sitting inside as it was a bit windy on the evening that we visited. We were the only people inside but we were ignored for a while before we were given menus, however the service did get better. For antipasti we had grilled pecorino and caponata dishes and shared them... More
