Good food, service rushed

We shared the octopus carpaccio to start - great value for 8 euro. Then the busiate with tuna ragu for me and the veal steak for my partner. My pasta was good, but the veal was excellent. A very large portion and very tender. My only complaint was that the service did feel a little rushed. Very... read more

We spent a few hours in Trapani and the Ai lumi was recommended, second hand. Meager portions, high price, excessive "table charge" and mediocre quality. I am sure they would have served a much better plate to the local who recommended it.

Delicious food and great staff. Place is always full. You need to book ahead otherwise you have to wait. We preferred a table outside as atmosphere was lively. We were lucky as we didn't book and found a table for two.

We were staying at the accompanying hotel and we had heard very good reports of the restaurant, which is attractively laid-out and situated in a splendid position in the most attractive street in town, but the meal turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Things started badly when we were presented with an English-only menu, which summed up... More

For our first experience in Trapani, we are glad we chose Ai Lumi. We had a amazing experience! Right from the start, it was everything we could ask for. The food was delicious and the staff adorable. We would highly recommend a visit and we will surely be going back!!

I liked this hotel as its right in the centre, close to everything, and the owner Riiccardo is very nice and helpful. Although is very old and no lift, its unique and a very nice Barrocco building.

Cosy inferior, we had veal tagliata and sea bream which were both good. The prices are reasonable, with 12-13 euro for one main course. The staff is fine.
