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.

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
