This restaurant was superb! The location is incredible, up on the top of Mont Erice and the food was fantastic. We had antipasti, pasta, couscous with seafood and the freshest grouper we have ever tasted. The presentation of the food is excellent and its taste even better. The cannoli we had for dessert were the size of a dinner plate... More

We were recommended to try the pizza here but we had no idea it would be so tasty!!! Pistachio one was fabulous, really really good. Staff more than friendly!! How about the fried onions they offered? No words, it was perfect with a cold Sicilian beer. Do not miss it!

Was told the best item to order was the pizza. Diavola and Romana were selected. Both were superb but with a slightly thicker crust than Naples pizza. The size was large and we could easily have split one between the two of us. Pizza for breakfast tomorrow. Yum!

Once I found family run La Rustichella, which is situated on a corner of the main square, I knew I had found a little gem and it was the most visited of my stay. A wide-ranging choice of freshly prepared dishes is available, there is outdoor seating under a canopy, food is excellent quality, prices are reasonable, staff professional and... More

Located in the central piazza of tiny Erice, this is a bustling place late in the evening. Pizza et al was delicious. Families with very, shall we say, lively children with CLEAR voices made it impossibile to linger after dinner and still be able to hear the next morning. As legit Sicilian as it gets, I imagine. Very enjoyable.

Shame that we did not order busiate or any other special food from Trapani. We only had 2 pizza share among 2 kids and one adult. They have real fried onion rings which is not like American full of batter onion rings. Lightly fried and seasoned. May be we all enjoyed it more than pizza!?

Nice family run restaurant in centre of Erice and recommended by a local from Trapani. 2 pasta dishes we had were excellent, although salty, which I think is typical of Sicilian cuisine. Also ordered a pizza to take away for our journey the following morning. It was delicious cold. 2 bowls of pasta, one pizza, 1 half L of wine... More
