Great place for dinner

we had a great dinner here. All the food was very good, the place is nice and service is very good. Off the main streets in an alley...make sure to book as people without a reservation were being turned away...

Very personal and good service by the owner Francesco Fileccia. The busiate was the best we have tasted so far. The cous cous with seafood was very tasteful. It is a very clean and orderly place - more typical Japanese than usual Sicilian. But nice atmosphere both for our family with kids as well as couples. But the very local,... More

We`ve been twice (me and my wife) in La Bettolacia for dinner (first and last during one week stay, visited many other restaurants in Trapani). Food was very good/great (we tried 5-piece seafood apetizer, different busiate, swordfish, seabass in paper bag, squids with potatoes). Wine is also very nice in reasonable prices. We discussed how to rate and describe this... More

Simple decorations with excellent food. We started with a local mixed seafood platter of 5 different items. Followed by a Trapini speciality - Cous Cous with fried squid and shrimp accompanied with a flavourful broth which was simply delicious. Affordable prices with great service.

This is a great restaurant and I was really pleased to find that it had re-opened. I liked everything, the food, especially the fresh fish and pasta. The wine list is exceptional and the service great . I highly recommend it, it is one of the best restaurants I know.

This restaurant is outstanding. The way in which it combines local ingredients to provide its customers with trapenese food has to be tasted to be believed. On this trip we booked in three times and each time had exceptional food. We also saw many people turned away who had not booked because it is so popular. My highlights were the... 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.

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 both starters and... More

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.
