Never fails to disappoint- we have eaten here several times in the past and it was just as we recalled. Delicious and reasonable but you need to make a reservation- people were getting turned away in droves on both nights that we ate here

Second year for me in Trapani and this time I spent 7 days of 14 (could have spent all nights here) at Caupona. Why? they just give you that extra "bang for the bucks". You can pay for the food but the personal service, owner...More
