We stayed in Trapani for 2 nights and went to this restaurant and the food was absolutely fabulous. So fresh and delicious and a real authentic restaurant. The house wine in a carafe went down the hatch like a dream and the waitresses were very friendly although they couldn't speak much english. It isn't a problem unless you are like... More

This is a very nice place indeed. I ate a three course dinner with a smile, and would have stayed for hours if it wasn't for the steady flow of people trying to get a table. I would go back tomorrow if it wasn't closed on tuesdays.

Got my trapani cous cous there. To be honest, I'd expect more fish in that "fish dish" than just a few nail size pieces hidden in the couscous. On top, all was a bit too fatty for my taste. Maybe it should be like that, but would not order it there again. Glass of house wine I got tasted as... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B host and we were not disappointed. We had a table outside which was very pleasant. Service was quick and friendly. The caponata dish was rated the best dish of our trip by one of our friends. The caponata with fish was also excellent. Servings are very generous. The busiate was a bit al... More

We arrived early and were able to get a table outside on the terrace without booking, however, it soon filled up. My wife I shared a mixed seafood antipasto as a starter, we both had seafood pasta dishes as main course and a bottle of Sicilian white wine to wash it down. We had been looking forward to an unforgettable... More

Ate here twice during a recent stay. Really fresh fish well cooked,by that I mean not overcooked. Decent choice of wines. Both food and wine excellent value. I enjoyed eating in its outside terrace.

The food here is very good, excellent in fact, but as a restaurant it needs a lot of work to make it one of the best. The restaurant is very understaffed, with the owner and his one waiter getting in each others' way, serving the same table when others need to be seen to. Courses took far too long to... More
