We recently visited Erice and had lunch at Via Vittorio Emanuele. The food and wine was very good and the prices were very fair. Service was excellent. A very charming little cafe.

Had to send my first order back, which was spaghetti and sardines, half hot, half cold, as if it had come straight from a microwave, and a microwave that didn't work properly, at that. I then ordered bruschetta with salmon. OMG, two bites and that...More

We ordered breakfast and coffee with alcohol in it. Omg! We so wanted to return everything we ordered. It seems like the pizzas and sandwiches were previously frozen. It was actually still cold in the middle. The coffee with some kind of alcohol in it...More
