Simple and tasty food, charming place

The placement, besides the church in the main square, is quite romantic. this is a simple place whose charm is largely due to the pleasant and uncomplicated way the owner and the staff manage with their guests.

Excellent value at Pakkaro, it's tucked away at the back of the main square and is more basic than other places, with prices that seem to reflect this. They certainly don't reflect the quality of the food though, which was superb! The fiorentina of tuna with pistachios was the standout dish, just a huge slab of tuna steak cooked to... More

We came here at first because the prices on the menu were cheaper than other local restaurants, but it looked authentic, and we like good food... As we were asking ourselves what to get, a couple who was leaving the restaurant said 'if you want a great experience, just tell the boss that you let him choose...' and that's what... More

What a great find!! This place might be easy to miss, if you're easily distracted by the bars and restaurants in the middle of the piazza, so you should do whatever you can to seek it out! DELICIOUS fresh food, with the owner (grandson of the original owner) working the tables, with his wife and friends in the kitchen. A... More

We were there in low season (May). The food was very good and the price incredible for what we got. Also the owners are very nice, they even gave us the recipy of their delicious couscous a la favignanese (try it when you are there). While in Favignana some places can look like tourist traps, this was not the impression... More

If you love fish, this is the place to go!! Giuseppe, the son of the previous owner, and his wife make the most amazing fish dishes for a select number of guests, as there are only two tables inside. On a warm evening you can sit outside in the church square and enjoy the flow of dishes that arrive at... More
