Great restaurant fantastic fish

Went for an evening in Trapani specifically to try the fish. This restaurant was highly recommended so we decided to try it out. It took us a while to find it, and when we finally went it, the modern interior was a fresh and stark contrast to the surrounding area. We went for the fish of course... read more

This restaurant was located very near our hotel so we decided to try it as also it received good reviews from others. We thought the food was just slightly better than average. Wine in Sicily is excellent and very reasonably priced. What we had here was also great.

One of the very best restaurants in Sicily. You can't go wrong with any of the dishes but the orange salad and swordfish pasta were outstanding.

Definitely one of the top restaurants in Trapani. We had a selection of mixed starters - fish arancini, raw fish and raw prawns with lemon,olive oil, pepper & mint sauce... all oustanding. As a main course I had pasta with prawns, cherry tomatoes and almonds, also very delicous! Would definitely go there again!!

Excellent food corner , mandatory stop for all travellers just for fresh fish and high level of dishes preparation.Each course is commented by a professional staff. Satisfactory list of wines but only the prices are little bit out of same class of restaurants.

My mother and I came here after being recommended it by our hotel. Tucked away on a side street, it was full of local people which was a good sign. We had the appetizer sampler which was delicious. My mother had the sardine pasta and I had the couscous. All of it was fresh and delicious. The service was also... More

Went because of TripAdvisor, at the beginning service was good but fell by the wayside, starters were very good but mains were cold and disappointing.After 7 days of eating out in Trapani this restaurant we are sorry to say was the bottom of our list.
