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

The price was the main attraction here. The dessert was also quite lovely. Other than that our fresh pasta dishes were sub-par (the fish fillets and mussels with shrimp). The pasta was over cooked and the fish was indistinct. For antipasti we had a trio of fish with a delicious seafood Arancino and a fish meatball that was doused in... More

When we walked in, the dining room was already fairly full, but we were seated right away with menus. There's lots of options to choose from and the menu is in several languages. As we waited for service for a few minutes, we were able to see several dishes at the table of three beside us. Everything looked good as... More

This little trattoria was well worth visiting ( one of several local restaurants recommended by our B&B) It was full of locals, which is always a good sign, and the menu was extensive, reasonable and in Italian,English,German and French. My wife and I had a light lunch of antipasto plus a pasta dish - all fish based and very tasty.... More

Very nice seafood place full of locals. People queuing to get a table. I was not impressed with decor, it was dark and maybe claustrophobic but the seafood coming out was fantastic. People just kept having more and more food. The staff could cheer up a bit however it was understandable they were so busy. Also not bad prices at... More

I went Al Faro during my stay in beautiful sciacca. Very nice place near the port, food was good but not amazing. Very cheap anyway.
