An authentic Slow Food bit of awesome, it' s centrally located yet tucked into a quiet corner. Eat in, eat out, be dazzled. Make a reservation!

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.

We didnt expexct much, but you got really surprised. we got such good food, atmosphere and service that it made our night delightful. The dishes are really good (we asked a sea food frittada, a grilled fish and a risotto). All of them were great as our side dishes (potatos on garlic) and the salad. It's wise to book in... More

Had read about place on trip advisor and at first when closed could not spot on street due to grills up. Definately need to book saw at least 10 people turned away on a Tuesday night, we wanted to try something more authentic and was no dearer than restaurants on the main drag. We had fabulous prawn pasta and veal... More

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
