If you like to eat fish this is your place! We went there to have dinner with a couple of our friends (4 people in total). Remember to book your table because the place is really cosy but very very small. The owner told us that they are trying to expand it but it probably won't be for another couple... More

Food in Sicily had been uneven but this was a standout. A nice family feel to it and not the usual run of 'international food', in fact my partner ordered a bean dish he didn't care for too much but even that didn't dent our enjoyment, just a poor choice. The rest of the food was excellent, we particularly liked... More

This little family run restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The first night it was so delicious, we went again. My only regret is that we couldn't go a few more times. What more can I say, it was simple, authentic fare. Maybe the best pasta dishes we have ever had. Also had a steak that was to die for.... More

good food, caters to the english speaking crowd. Good service. A bit hard to find but worth the effort. Lacks the outdoor setting of many of the other restaurants in the town center. The 5 taste starter had a macerated fish I didn't care for, but the other 4 were tasty. Both pasta dishes we had featured the same twisted... More

I'll start where the other end the review - yes, I would always come back to that place! It has all what one expects from a good italian osteria: food, service, ambience were just impeccable. I had the bresaola di tonno al pepe - unforgetable in taste, and then busciate con sarde with bread crumbs on the side - amazing... More

Great food, prepared with love! Authentic sicilian taste and very good service. I have never seen a chef come out of the kitchen to clean and serve my fish for me with so much care! Be sure to make a stop here!

This restaurant was recommended by the manager at our B&B (Residence La Gancia -excellent place). It was one of the best meals that we had in Sicily. It's a small cozy place down a narrow street. The owner was warm and friendly and he suggested that we start with an appetizer sampling of vegetables, olives, cheeses and different types of... More

We tried to eat here on our first night in Trapani, but they were full so we made a booking for the next night. The service staff were all very professional and efficient and the chef filleted the sea bass in foil at our table for one of our friends. The 5 taste starter was exceptional and could probably have... More

We had an excellent seafood meal here and tried to go a second time and couldn't get in! The fish was perfectly done, and they deboned and filleted it perfectly. Huge portions. My ragu was the best I've had! Best meal in Trapani.

I ate here for my first lunch in Trapani and returned twice for evening meals. Every dish was wonderful without exception. There is a real attention to detail and it shows. I had grilled Red Mullet grilled twice as it was so good. Its skin was like paper and it was so easy to get off the bone. I must... More
