The food and service at Ai Lumi are both first rate. (I believe the restaurant has a Michelin star.) It's on the pedestrian walkway that is brimming with shops and restaurants in the heart of Trapani, which makes it convenient. The night we were there, the walkway was a virtual promenade of families, friends, locals, and tourists just strolling up... More

I really don't understand how this place gets any positive reviews as after years of traveling and using tripadvisor it actually got me to register here. We were just looking for a quick and easy dinner as we just arrived in Sicily and were a bit tired so we said "Let's just go with Lonely Planet reccommendation it should be... More

This restaurant is certainly deserving of its five! The food is wonderful, in taste and presentation, the fresh fish was outstanding, but certainly the pasta was brilliant too. I can definitely recommend the stuffed swordfish starter and main of gnocchi with pistachios. The waiters were very efficient and friendly, we weren't left waiting for anything. I would suggest making a... More

During our holiday we went for a dinner at Ai Lumi. The atmosphere indoors is very nice and quiet. Staff are very friend and helpful. Food is very good and genuine and portions are quite large, which makes it very good value for money.

Seriously, I don't understand how this restaurant ended up on LP list. Maybe because of fresh fish (I kind o' remember reading some reviews), but we didn't order those. Location in the highly touristic pedestrian zone usually doesn't promise much. I didn't expect anything better than frozen food and pasta & sauces bought in the shop/supermarket, etc. And we got...

Venue is nice but totally ruined by 1 particular arrogant waiter who was extremely rude and sarcastic. Food was average and hardly anything on the menu as almost all dishes had finished even though we didn't go at a late time, and were only told about this problem after we ordered drinks and wine. Absolutely no idea in customer care... More

This is the best restaurant in Trapani. We loved the old world atmosphere, the location and the food. It's located in the center of the old town where all the action is... lots of people walking around enjoying their time in Trapani. If you choose to great outside, you will have a great people-watching opportunity. The food was excellent especially... More

We had lunch here after enjoying a walk down the center of beautiful Trapani. The specialty was a type of ricotta-filled dumpling in fish broth that was superb - delicate and delicious. Not to miss is the Pesto alla Trapanese, and they had plenty of gluten free options for pasta as well.

Not sure if this place is worth a Michelin guide.... I found the service poor. We were not told that there were specials on the menu. Other tables seemed to have more attentive waiters who offered suggestions and recommended wines etc. The food was so so. The lemon tiramisu was delicious however.
