Our meal was in the top 2 we had during our 2 weeks in Italy. I had a Trapanese pasta with swordfish, in a pistacchio pesto with crumbled bottarga on top. The flavors were amazing. Freshness too. And the dishes seem to be unique to Trapani because I didn't even see them on menus in other cities in Sicily. Must... More

Do not believe the hype...honestly this was the less authentic food I had in 3 weeks in Sicily. Wine list is good but prices are inflated in relation to other restaurants. Service is professional and attentive. Restaurant has been just renovated in a clean, basic , minimalistic style. Food was good but some elements were quite irritating...a small cup with... More

We stepped in early on a night and were lucky to find a table that was not reservated. We had a great meal here and when I would return to Trapani I would go here again. It is one of the few places where somebody spoke English to us.

This is a really strange review. This was the best restaurant that I ate in Trapani in Sept/Oct 2013. I was so disappointed to find that it was closed for extensive refurbishment this May 2014. The work was delayed and instead of starting in February 2014 it began May 2014,due to finish in 13 weeks,hopefully July 2014. Sadly the website... More

What a find. I didn't check trip advisor first. We just came across this place. The food was amazing. We had a steak which was in some sort of balsamic reduction. In addition a baked potato that sounded boring but was stunning. The total meal per person with the potatoes and the huge piece of steak was ten euros so... More

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
