The service here is spot-on, and you can't go wrong with ordering fish and wine here. Listen to your server's suggestions -- they definitely know all of the best they have to offer. I've been twice, and plan to come back again :) Call for reservations, or go early -- it does fill up!

We were recommended Sciacca by our hotel (Intercontinental) and tour agent. We were very impressed. We ordered the tasting menu, which included hot and cold first and second courses, spaghetti vongole, main course and pudding. We were recommended a local Cabernet Savingnon wine, which was young, quite tart, with lemon aftertaste. A perfect accompaniment. The price, compared to London prices,... More

This was my second visit, both for midweek dinners. The service is terrific, with detailed explanations about the menu, and the fresh fish on offer - all presented in a very informal manner. The choice of drinks is huge, and the quality of the food is second to none. Highly recommended.

Over several visits, my favourite dishes will be the steaks, king prawns and top notch calamari fritti. The food is always cooked to perfection. Unfortunately it does get a bit busy and a delay is expected though the taste overpowers the delay. the restaurant decor is gives it a really homely feel. The staff are welcoming and well trained.

The food here is made with fresh ingredients and great taste! On request you can have your desires taken into account. The chef really makes the difference here! If you are also a whiskey lover then you are at the second best place in town... The restaurant owner also owns a steakhouse with more than 400 single malts in the... More

If Sciacca was food in itself I would say that it is like an easter egg, where you have to be patient enough to remove the boring wrapper to find all the glorious chocolate and surprises inside... It's unassuming facade and location make it quite easy to pass by this restaurant without giving it a second glance, however, once you're... More
