We took a winding road through the country side to get to this place and it was well worth it! Alone in a wonderful rustic setting, we were welcomed warmly and offered great, tasty, typical sicilian food. We recommend this place!
Do not second guess the road - it is worth the short trek up a worn path to this restaurant in the hills near Segesta. Come with a big appetite and expect to be received into a relaxed, rustic farmhouse that is also a b&b....In a well-refurbished dining room hall, there are a number of tables to enjoy a selection of the regions farm-fresh foods.
Starting with mixed Sicilian antipasti, we thoroughly enjoyed a medley of eggplant dishes, prepared multiple ways. All relatively straightforward, but with extremely fresh ingredients (herbs were picked during the meal) and seasoned perfectly. The grilled eggplant with olive oil, mint, and garlic stood out, along with an incredibly fresh bruschetta. The antipasti included a wonderful caponata, local olives, pumpkin & onions, potato & onions and a few other surprises we will save for your own discovery.
For primi, we went with the pasta alla trapenese. Perfectly cooked pasta with fresh tomatoes and herbs went down easily. For secondi we went with the mixed grill that included a juicy pork chop.
All was washed down with a refreshing house white wine.
Remember, this is a family run establishment and come expecting friendly service. You cannot go wrong if you go with a good attitude and a good appetite. Don't settle for a wasted meal at the Segesta entrance, make the effort to visit Baglio Segesta for a real local treat.More
As said by other reviews this wasn’t easy to get to, but it was absolutely worth it. The house wine and homemade pasta were absolutely lovely, and the antipasti especially was delicious. It was very well priced and the serious was great. I would highly...recommend this as the place to eat if you’re going to the archeological park.More
As other reviewers have commented, getting there is not easy but part of the pleasure of arriving: you literally go under the highway and then up a dirt track lined with vinyards until you get to this beautifully restored farm. The food is home-cooked and...genuine Sicilian, especially the antipasti which are a meal in themselves. The restaurant and adjacent rooms (there are also some apartments) where we slept one night, having found very little around the amazing archeological site of Segesta, is family run, and they are full of amusing stories about cultivating the land and making wine. There is the Erice wine road nearby where you can visit several wine producers and the landscapes are truly spectacular. Well worth using this place as a base for day trips to hot baths nearby and the site. They are also welcoming even late at night after going to the theater in the archeological site where they run a summer festival.More
It was easy to eat this bad in Sicily years ago...now the quality has quite gone up and it's become difficult to find such terrible place like this one.
Horrible food, clumsy service, depressing atmosphere and overly priced.
Just do not go!
After driving for 2 km on a gravel road you get to this hidden gem: food is very genuine and the wine quite tasty!
Portions are huge but overall it seems overpriced, not VFM!
Our dinner was fine... ... but I would not come back...again as the place was quite remote!More
Its gonna be a bumpy ride straight off the highway from segesta but worth your while. Greeted by the eldest son of the family a very special and delicious italian lunch was served with the utmost hospitality and honour of their own local produce used...in the dishes. It was a special experience!More
I can honestly say that this was the best meal I had in Sicily! Don’t be discouraged by the off-country roads to get to this hidden gem. Breathtaking views, the freshest, most deliciously prepared food and excellent, kind service gives this restaurant a 100% for...us!More
Follow the signs along the track. Don't give up and turn around whatever you do.
Food is excellent, and very reasonably priced. The family who run the restaurant are very friendly and welcoming. Everything is homemade including the pasta. Definitely worth the effort to visit.
