Very good food but waiters a little pushy with selling a wine bottle to us

Food was excellent as was our dessert, however we just wanted to look at the wine list to select a wine or just grab a 20-40 euro decent red but they kept pushing this other white wine on us and then when we asked for red pointed to a 60 euro then 180 euro bottle!! Service was good after we... read more

The view over the lively fisher harbour is great. The staff is friendly and they serve good food. Would really recommend this place.

Sitting on the patio overlooking the harbor (which is a bit run-down, but at night the marina is nice) we enjoyed a lovely meal. For a non-smoker in Italy it is always a bit risky to sit outside, and this was not exception. The chain-smoking woman nearby seemed to know exactly the way the breeze would blow. The waiter, who...

The food was simply excellent. It was a hot day in August 15, but the air con helped us surviving the heat as well as the cold mineral water served. The restaurant is on the first floor and inside it looked really nice, white being the main color of walls, floor and table. This made the paintings look more dominant.... More

No one can argue that it's a good place with a new view, good food, decent service but we didn't feel welcomed and that in itself negates all the above, at least in my humble opinion.

We came to the harbor at Sciacca to watch the afternoon arrival of the fish only to be disappointed.....twice! However, we were hungry and La Lampara was right there. We took an outdoor table and were able to watch people go about their daily lives on the street below as we ate. Had the Eggplant Parmesan as an appetizer and... More

We ate here as a family of 4. The food arrived at a diffrent time for all 4 of us. My husband got his food 40 mins after we had finished eating. No apology, in fact the staff did their best to avoid eye contact. Dreadful and not cheap either!

We went to the Lampara restaurant after been to the San Paolo restaurant the night before. The restaurant is located almost in front of the other one even if the view is not exactly the same and here is probably a bit worst but the service and the food was much much better! We ordered two different kind of pasta,... More

We really enjoyed this little place. It was very quiet (we were here in early May) but the staff managed to be both attentive and give us space. Sicilian seafood done with style and a view of the harbour. Lovely wine recommendations. We stopped off on our way back from Agrigento to Trapani- a perfect halfway point and a lovely... More
