This is good restaurant on a back street in the old town. We booked a table and ate outside. The fillet steak with the wine sauce was great. Nice bottle of house red wine and reasonable prices.

We went because of TripAdvisor, we were lucky to get a seat and had lovely meal of mozzarella with tuna eggs and grilled cheese with honey, followed by 2 pasta dishes which were authentic and tasty. The wine was very good, all in all a very good meal.

We were in Trapani for 2 nights and our hotel recommended this restaurant. We went there about 8:30 the first night -- asked for a table and gave the name of the hotel concierge (as she told us to do!). The reaction? We were abruptly and rudely turned away as we didn't have a reservation. We were so unimpressed by... More

This restaurant is excellent, you shall try if you are close to Trapani. A must is the Pasta with seafood and pistacchi. Prices are moderate- Small restaurand with a nice view of a church in front.

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
