Fantastic seafood

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.

Casual atmosphere in a very plain setting My caupona appetizer excellent. The pasta du jour was a bit of a let down Swift service,decent wines by the glasss. Good value but not refined. Appreciated by locals

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

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...
