Great atmosphere

The restaurant was a great surprise as the exterior is simple and lost on a dusty harbour road. The atmosphere is great and friendly, the food excellent. Definitely a must.

This little trattoria was well worth visiting ( one of several local restaurants recommended by our B&B) It was full of locals, which is always a good sign, and the menu was extensive, reasonable and in Italian,English,German and French. My wife and I had a light lunch of antipasto plus a pasta dish - all fish based and very tasty.... More

Very nice seafood place full of locals. People queuing to get a table. I was not impressed with decor, it was dark and maybe claustrophobic but the seafood coming out was fantastic. People just kept having more and more food. The staff could cheer up a bit however it was understandable they were so busy. Also not bad prices at... More

I went Al Faro during my stay in beautiful sciacca. Very nice place near the port, food was good but not amazing. Very cheap anyway.

Had lunch there with some friends from Malta. When we walked in we also met some friends from Sciacca. One was the president of the Rotary Club of Sciacca who told the owner that we were his friend and he was to look after us. I don't know if this was the reason but look after us he did. He... More

Within walking distance of our hotel and reasonably-priced. Unfortunately the house red was not available that night. The menu is one of those gaudy touristic ones and slightly off-putting. The food was fine. The wine we chose was fine. Service was fine. The restaurant was busy by late evening. There was a TV on which was a distraction. Yes -... More

This restaurant was packed the evening we went; it was standing room only after we were seated (luckily). We had an assortment of small fish that I boned at the table. We ordered pasta and white wine as well. (Their prices were fair but it was the proximity to our hotel that made this restaurant a good place for us.)... More

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
