We went here for dinner after receiving a recommendation from our hotel in Tapani. It was excellent. The service was quick and impeccable. The food was excellent and the portion sizes were generous. We had the pumpkin and bacon risotto, pistachio cream gnocchi and the saffron lamb skewers. The atmosphere is comfortable with relaxing music and you can watch the... More

Like you should always be eating. Hot served food, try the ravioli in bouillabaise, very nice! Service attentive and quick. You will have a good bottle of wine for a reasonable price.

The beauty of a lovely meal served outdoors in late summer...served with efficiency and ease. Highly recommend this restaurant located in the historic center and near enough to take a stroll after dinner on the sea.

The food was great. The pasta with trapanese pesto was great and made me wish there was more on the plate. The fish was perfectly cooked but being used to over the top portions in Sicily (part of its charm) we were a bit deceived by the small portions and the large price. Had we been in Paris we would...

Trattoria Ai Lumi is a first class restaurant offering local dishes in the center of the old town. Nice place and location, great food, wine and service and a great atmosphere. Slightly expensive, but the ambiance is lovely.

We had a great time eating a typical Italian dish: as antipasti we had the mozzarella burrata and Caponata, primi: pasta alle vongole and as secondi fried seafood (calamari, sardines, ...). Super atmosphere, great venue and great ambiance! Superb evening.

Nothing special and good with the meals. The service is just awful - long waiting, totally unfriendly staff. Finally 'made a mistake' of 10 euro to the bill total. Never recommend and definitely exclude from the Michelin guide.

Very disappointing dinner. Food is overpriced and at best average. I got tuna steak which was served solo! Nobody bother tell me that I have to order sides separately. My wife got couscous with 2 tiny pieces of fish and tasteless broth.The only thing which was eatable was plate of cured meats for the starter. At the end we were... More
