This small family restaurant is away from the main strip of restaurants but still on the seafront. There were no other guests when we were there. The food was plentiful and the quality of the cooking was good. It was uncomplicated dishes made with care. There seemed to be an odd dynamic going on between the head waiter and the... More

We had the set menu for €25 each and the food just kept coming! By the third course we thought we'd died and gone to fish heaven! The waiter was friendly and attentive and also because we ate on a quiet weekday the lovely chef came out and made sure we were enjoying our meal and we definitely were! We... More

Family run trattoria near the port of Sciacca. We ordered the menu of the day at €25 with half a carafe of local wine. There was so much food. Really tasty mixed fish starters followed by two sea bass and salad. Make sure you go there 😊

We were recommended to dine here by locals. Great choice! My husband and I dined a la carte, mussels for me, swordfish for him .. both delicious. Our friends had the set menu and were overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of their meal. Great little Trattoria with great food, and friendly service. Go!

What a wonderful restaurant..family owned and operated..felt like I was in their dining room at home. The antipasti was an array of many plates, sampling everything..especially vegetarian..I am but the rest of my friends were not. Hardly had room for the main course..but attempted anyway. Everyone else had amazing plates filled with a variety of fish from the sea..probably caught... More

While our stay in Sciacca me and my friend felt in love with this place! Almost every evening we went there to get our favorite dish - zuppa di cozze! They were the best we ever tried! Also seafood and antipasti are very good, always very fresh and delicious. Staff are always friendly and Maria (who is the chef) could... More

We selected trattoria based on the sympathetic reviews in Tripadvisor. We travelled 20km to find the place on a sunday-evening almost empty. But the reception was still hospitable. We selected a bottle of prosecco and started to look to order. THEN things took a turn for the worst. We got a menu but when we wanted to order, half the... More

There was a lot of construction work going on near the harbour but we found this restaurant easily enough. We dined on a Monday evening in early October and we were the only guests. They have plenty of fish on the menu and it is all freshly cooked and very tasty. The house wine was inexpensive and pleasant enough. In... More

We were looking for something near the water during summertime construction and other than a large tourist restaurant, and we stumbled upon Trattoria Mokarta. What a wonderful find. The 4 of us shared a fish sampler and some calamari, a tagliatelli and another pasta, and everything was excellent and was promptly served by friendly people. It was a delightful find.

Thank AnitaMW
