We (me and my mum) had two dinners there during our six days stay in Sicilia. The staff is very friendly there and the atmosphere in the restaurant is cozy and relaxing. We had grilled cheese with honey and mozarella with tuna eggs to start, both were very good:) main courses were also delicious! Didn't try the desserts but their... More

We had dinner at this restaurant upon recommendation from the hotel. The location is nice, at a quiet small square, opposite to the Purgatorio church. Unfortunately, the view from the terrace is obstructed by some plants and by cars parked just in front of the restaurant. The food was very good: We had mozzarella with tuna eggs, mussels in wine...

First place in Italy where I did enjoy food and no pizza after 20:00 is good point. Antipasti are great , first meal was good but I didn't saw so many seafood as in antipasti... Its really worth going there and booking place for night out...

We were a bit sceptical to go here because we taught it might be touristy, but it is anything but. The food is simple and classic, just as sicilian food should be! It is really worth a visit for those of you wanting a really good pasta.

This restaurant was recommended to us by Residence La Gancia and we were not disappointed. On our first visit we just about got a table as the restaurant was so popular. The food was typically Sicilian and excellent. The staff were delightful. Not a cheap meal but not overly expensive either. We loved it so much we booked for our... More

We followed Trip Advisor's recommendations on this one. We arrived unannounced, so then booked for the following evening. Not too keen on manager's way of directing us where to sit. Mussels were tasty. My main course was fine but my partner could hardly touch hers. Lady at next table had the same unfortunate experience. I was dismayed as to why... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and while they were fully booked the first night we went they do take reservations so we were in luck the second night. Fish is their specialty and they have lots of fresh pasta dishes too. We had the bruschetta and then the Sicilian swordfish accompanied by the house white wine, a Grillo.... More

Upon recommendation from Anna Lisa, host of B&B Barbado, this place is the real deal. One of the best meals while in Sicily. Make a reservation as this place is small. Wait staff was super friendly. It was so good were going back again tonight! Don't miss out if your in Trapani, this place is great. Enjoy.

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.
