The best in Trapani

If you want to be sure to eat amazing fresh fish and traditional trapanese Food culture, need to come here. Only good surprise. Better to eat early because the room is little and very easy to find full. Price is appropriate but not expensive

Lovely dinner.. delicious plate if pasta and meat. We do not eat fish so we can't judge that, but I can judge the fact that the pasta and meat were great! Keep it up! Booking is needed as it is always full.

I think it was hard to make a reservation at this restaurant since no one answers the phone but with perserverance we were able to make a reservation. Service great, wine delicious and fresh bottles opened even for one glass of wine. Food was fantastic!

Emailed and called them, no response. Had to find on foot and book for next day. Swordfish tartare was excellent but chose a fish of the day described as a bit like sea bass but it was very bony. Not my main issue though, the food is of a high quality here no doubt. Just found the waiting staff a... More

The restaurant was above all expectations. The appearance was very basic, the service was great and the food was FANTASTIC!! We tried two appetizers (caponata - Medium good ; something similar to tuna roll - very very good) but the Best was the Pasta (pesto trapanese and pasta of the day with very original recepy). I would grab a flight... More

We went to this restaurant twice during our 3 day visit to Trapani , the food was fabulous and service friendly. Their tuna is to die for, I was not crazy about my swordfish but the salmon on the second day was very tasty. The place seems to get busy in the evening so be prepared to queue up if... More

I dined at the Osteria twice, last September (2014) and a week ago. I definitely recommend busiate with seafood as it is delicious and even their semifreddo al pistacchio. Ottimo!

We went to this restaurant on the strength of TA reviews and were disappointed. We have no real complaints, everything was ok, but nothing special. Our shared starters of prawns with an orange sauce and mozzarello with tomato salad were ok although we were worried when the prawns arrived completely covered in a thick marie rose type sauce. Thankfully the... More
