We were recommended Trattoria Al Faro by the owners of the B&B we stayed in in Sciacca and it proved to be an excellent advice. The restaurant is nothing fancy but offers a rich variety of seafood dishes at very reasonable prices. I had mussels and the traditional "pasta con le sarde", and were both exquisite. It was easy to... More

We were hungry and after an adventurous, tasty dinner and this place delivered. Wonderful array of dishes. We selected a few favourite fish courses and left the rest up to the owners. Delicious food, yummy wines - all was good. Lighting a tad bright and the TV screen not totally necessary- otherwise a top find!

Seafood cannot get any fresher than in this port - side trattoria. Plus very well prepared. The result is excellent! Not overly touristicated, frequented by locals which is always a good sign. It was full during lunch time on Monday, so book in advance or be prepared to wait for a table to come available.

Visited the place having quiet expectations when read about the fresh fish delivered to the harbor almost daily. The pasta con sarde was not what I have pleasure to enjoy on many occasions elsewhere on Sicily. No saffron or sultans to be noticed. The grilled fish was average at most, the squid pieces on my plate ware chewy the sea... More

Superb food, mostly fish and seafood platters. Advice: zuppa di cozze 6 € , antipasti di pesce .... Great pasta and risotto. You can only sit inside , no terras, but climate control. Price including wine 80 € for 4 persons. Never ate so good and cheap in Sicily !!!

Small restaurant near the harbour, where you can only sit inside. In August you need to make a reservation, if you like to start for dinner at 08 pm. Later at 10pm it might be possible without doing the reservation. But take care, most of the time they are not answering their phone. They have good starters mainly with fish.... More

Although this restaurant gets the plaudits in many places, we found they were playing of their reputation and gave us little respect or attention. Hope this short review gets back to them as I champion smaller enterprise.

It was good, food was fine, but compared to Conte Luna and Palazzo Venuti it was a distant third. Maybe it suffered because we visited on our first night in Sicily.

A friend recommended this restaurant to us. It is near the port and the area is not so beautiful, inside it is different. The friendly service and delicious food makeup for the views outside. As they are Sicilians the waiters are friendly and happy to suggest one of their plates. We had mixed fresh fish starters, I followed with a... More

We went here based on the reviews. Would never go back. Yes we were sitted quickly and yes the restaurant was busy. However locals who arrived after us were sipping wine before we had ordered. We ordered the octopus salad - my hiking boots would have been more tender. As the waiter cleared the table next to us he managed... More
