Thank you Vincenzo and the team for looking after us so well. Next time we are in Trapani, we will be back to see... More

Tentazioni di gusto is an elegant restaurant in the city center. We were assisted all the evening long by a capable waiter who suggested us a delicious dry Zibibbo (not the sweet dessert version of course) and was available for any kind of explanation regarding the food and the wine. I took the mixed fish-based entry, thought for two people... More

I had one meal here, a lunch of sea bream with a sauce of fresh tomatoes and olives, plus a side of grilled vegetables. Wonderful food. The restaurant has an upscale appearance, but I thought the prices were reasonable.

... push "specials" at you, which turn out not to be special at all, and absurdly priced. Several better places to go in Trapani.

Just returned home after 10 days in Trapani, thankfully found this restaurant early on our stay and dined here 4 times. great menu, fresh seafood, locally based wine list, lovely setting and fabulous staff. Vincent and Peter run a tight ship and are brilliant hosts, thanks for looking after us. Kyoko and Dan.

We started with a mixed fish starter to share 15 euro, it was OK, but really nothing special, If you paid £7.50 for a starter these days in the UK you would expect and usually get something special. This was followed by a ragu and fish couscous, again we thought both the pasta and the couscous were 'al dente', under... More
