Well worth the visit

We asked someone in a small shop in Erice for the "least" touristy restaurant in Erice and she sent us here. The food was great with good local wine and great service for a fair price.

We just were wandering to just have a coffee and some sweets. The waiters just seated us in the restaurant, and offered to bring some Sicilian delicacies to share, but I declined the trick. We ordered two coffees, a tea a hot chocolate, a connolo and 2 other Sicilian sweets. We were dumbfounded by the heavy price tag of €6... More

well cooked good pasta. good service from the waiter. the only down side of this restaurant is that they prefer cash instead of card as payment. they instructed that if we pay by card we have to incur a charge, which is not fair. Cover charge of this restaurant is 5euro for 2 people :/

We discovered this restaurant by chance and were pleasantly surprised. The communication with the staff was difficult since they do not speak perfect English but they were very nice, friendly and really did their best to satisfy the clients. Definitely recommend the mussel soup (the best I had in Italy) and the busiata with seafood. Seafood salad was also perfect.... More

We really enjoy Sicilian food, and this restaurant had some great twists on "typical" dishes. Our server, Mauro, was entertaining and provided great service - he really made our dinner enjoyable. The wine was delicious and we really liked the amazing dessert samples they had downstairs. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wandering the streets of Erice in... More

Recommended by Aldo of Trapani tours, the restaurant - which is upstairs and not to be confused with the much cheaper bar downstairs - had almost finished for lunch when we arrived. Even so, the waiter, Mauro, looked after us extremely well. Everything was fresh and made to order from a varied menu, the prices remarkably low given the quality... More

We approached the restueant and were greeted by a smart good english speaking waiter. Showed us the lift and got up. We were greeted by mauro and rachele who very enthusiatically gave us the daily specialities. The food was served very fast and very fresh indeed.
