Touristic trap

We came here on the first day of our trip cause we were terribly hungry, liked the localization and prices seemed to be ok (not so expensive, but also not cheap). We ordered pasta with tuna and egg and pasta with clams. In pasta with tuna we could hardly find a fish. Almost no tuna. We were... read more

Run away... Look for another restaurant , we ordered fish of the day for 2 people , the restaurant charges 70€ per kilo for fish. I was pressured in choosing a monkfish and not a sea bass by the men at the door , while I was told me it weighs around 1.500 kg so that should be 90€ for... More

We had a few meals in Al Delfino since we discovered San Vito Lo Capo. We disagree with some of the poor reviews here. The food was actually good, service was quick and the staff were friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable considering the fact that it is in main street and very close to the beach. We have...

This restaurant was recommended by a travel blog and it was a very, very good choice. We asked the waiter for recommendation and he suggested a set of seafood dishes for starter. A set for two people was enough for 4 people actually - each of us could taste several dishes and we still had room for further treats. This... More

I should have looked at the reviews before going there. Average food. They bring you in with a low cost menu and then they don't have parts of it or that you need to pay extra. ... avoid it...

The food was good, but our initial experience was poor. We were 3 customers & asked for water first of all while we chose from the menu. A piece of paper was slipped "discreetly" on the edge of our table. I looked at it & saw that we were being charged for 4 covers(we were only 3), 2 bottles of... More

This was the dinner from a sitcom! We were amused at the beginning by the theatrical performance of overly serious waiters crowding to serve us, until everything started to go wrong. First, they brought the main course before the starters, then they crowded again around our table pushing us to finish it. Then they brought the burnt chewy and unable... More

This was one of the classic tourist traps that we fell for (our own fault:) as we just randomly walked there without having researched or just looked around for a bit longer. The menu was really long and that's already not a good sign but we were being too polite to leave at that moment, so we stayed. My boyfriend... More

We had the tourist menu based on fish. I had stuffed squid for main course, which was good however the antipasto and the first course were even better. For antipasto I had marinated anchovies while for first course the fish couscous. The food portions are also adequate. The atmosphere is nothing special as the restaurant is big and noisy however...

We had the Tourist menu and we were not impressed at all. The food is of average quality. However the service was fine and the staff was friendly.
