Had a wonderful fish based dinner in Caupona, in a very friendly atmosphere and with the owner helping us choosing the best Sicilian wine for the dinner. The place might not be flashy or overly elegant, but the culinary experience is one of the best in Trapani. Don't forget to book !

Got a really early flight and the hotel booked us in for lunch. All the other diners were Italian and mostly known to the owner. I particular liked the Busiate with Aubergine and Trapanese sauce (tomato pulp garlic and ground nuts). Decent wine list and I had a very good bottle of Grillo. Very good service.

旧市街の中心にあり、赤と黄色を使った素敵な内装で、とてもくつろげる雰囲気。 伝統的なシチリアのお料理が食べられるお店で、味もとてもおいしい。 オーナーが情熱的で、メニューについて熱心に説明してくれ、おいしいものを食べてほしい!という気持ちが伝わってきます。 特に、前菜の盛り合わせ、クスクスがおいしかったです。 located in central old city, nice interior decoration, comfortable for dinner. you can eat traditional Sicilian food and tastes good. the owner is very passionate parson, he explains a lot about traditional foods and his recommendations. we especially love antipasto del Monsu(variety of fish starters) and couscous.

This is a nice restaurant in the historic centre of Trapani. The host is very friendly, and the food (fish) is very fresh and cooked very well. However the portions are very small and expensive. There are other places nearby where you can eat just as well, but cheaper and more plentiful.

Really enjoyed our meal here - favourite restaurant we went to in Trapani. Started with a selection of local fish dishes and we then had the couscous with fish soup and ravioli with fish soup. All excellent, fresh and well-presented. Highly recommend if you want to experience local seafood.

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.
