We were on our way to Agrigento when decided to stop in Porto Empedocle for a dinner. Tripadvisor showed this trattoria among the best in the town and we decided to pay a visit.

Very, very small portions that my husband and I left starving and we went to get a sandwich after. The only plus was it had a nice and cold air conditioner.

Kind and helpful service. Outstanding regional food, fresh seafood and fishes. We ordered antipasti 'crudo' and 'regional', fish couscous and tuna and all we can say is that we enjoyed a good dinner. It was December, perhaps it helps.
