Pasta with Ricci

This is a fantastic, rustic restaurant in Trapani. Everything we ate was outstanding but the best dish, by far, is the busiate con ricci - it was spectacular and will be visiting again this summer.

Fresh fish to choose and then it is cooked to perfection. Hors d'oeuvres satisfied the vegetarian member of our party although not all of the dishes were vegetable. Although clearly popular with local people there is an English menu available which is just as well as very little English is spoken. Service is relaxed as there is only one waiter... More

We showed up without reservations. The young waiter summoned another young man who spoke english. He had one table available if we could finish in 90 minutes, before the folks with reservations arrived. Mussels and shrimp for appetizers followed by swordfish and clams with white wine and Sicilian lemon cake for dessert. Yummy and fresh as could be! All for... More

Recommended by Noemi&Fabio. I had a bit of hard time to find it. The owner does not speak english so I had kind of use hand and gestures to communicate. Food was excellent and surprisingly cheap. I had veggie and potatoes as an entree. Very tasty, fresh. Then lobster soup. Wonderful! I think I have paid less than thirty euro.... More

The first time my husband and I dined at Dolce Vita, I was fairly concerned about getting a table, as I sensed from the reviews that the place was small and popular. My husband tried to call and he even walked over to the restaurant in the afternoon to make a reservation, but no contact was made. As we approached... More

A cosy place, busy with families and local people and we were lucky to get a table. There was a menu, then the waiter comes and tells you which dishes they have cooked today! We had antipasti from a buffet, then a huge plate of pasta each, Chris's with mushrooms and walnuts and mine with fish roe and cherry tomatoes,... More

Are you looking for real sicilian food? Great meals at good prices? Authentic and not tourist atmosphere? Then, don’t hesitate, go there. We have a ‘not going twice to the same place while on holiday’ rule, but this place made us to broke it. And definitely the second one was even better than the first one. Unluckily we couldn’t spend... More
