This place is one of the recommendations of the lonely planet for traditional local food. Our experience was terrible. The antipasto di mare one assorted fish plate with eight varieties of fish starts had just two eatable ones, the cuscus and the sardines, all others were hard to eat. The pasta with sardine and the fettuccine with fresh fish filet... More

And the food was very good, the wait staff excellent, and a very pleasant place to spend a couple of hours eating and drinking the local wine. Although very close to the sea, no view, in fact could easily have driven by it was not really very obvious it was a restaurant, but like most trattoria's in Italy, it was... More

This is a small, Harbor side, trattoria serving mostly simple seafood dishes. Nothing fancy, but really authentic and of excellent quality. If you want some pasta with bottarga, pasta with seafood, freshly grilled fish .... . We enjoyed it a lot. Whenever I would be in the neighborhood again, I wouldn't hesitate.

Al Faro suffers from not having a terrace and being on a busy corner but the food is fantastic, the service charming, the portions generous and the value outstanding. The dining room is spacious with no intrusion from the street. You can taste the passion of the chefs in every mouthfull. Argueably the best in town.

We expected actually a place at the harbour with a view to the lighhouse - so we a bit disappointed to see that al faro is a restaurant in the 2nd row to the seaside. Inside we just... More

We poppd in for an impromptu lunch over the weekend. The place (like many others in Sicily) looks nothing from the outside. Don't be put off. It serves pretty decent food. We walked in to be greeted by the fresh fish counter on the right hand side. We eyed this up but in the end settled for a Swordfish Steak,... More
