My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here. We sat outdoors on a beautiful evening. The owner remembered us from a visit last December. After we ordered he brought us a small pizza as an extra appetizer. We ordered the Sicilian appetizer for two which had delicious sampling a of traditional Sicilian appetizers, all of which were great! My... More

We hadn't planned on going to this restaurant, but as we passed on our way to another one, the waiter came out and gave us copies of the Tourist Menu which looked to be very good value. And so it proved to be! With generous tasty pasta starters, followed either by a fish or meat mains with salad, then fresh... More

Had dinner here in early July. Staff couldn't have been nicer! Food included tuna, fresh local fish and pizzas. All delicious. Lovely setting in a cute piazza. Would go back!

Good pasta but poor main courses. We ate dinner four times here, as it was part of a package. Plenty of other restaurants closeby, which we would have preferred to try. Poor presentation of main courses, pork and lettuce, swordfish and lettuce, no other trimmings. Fruit dessert half a nectarine thinly sliced and spread out. If you do eat here,... More

food was fine, lovely location, but apparently the staff was not quite happy with the amount of food we ordered (bottle of wine, two pasta dishes, salad, coffee and desert), and therefore decided to buff up our bill, by increasing the routine cover chargers and a couple of euros here and there added to menu prices...

We had dinner here two times during our stay in Castellammare. Both times we had great food, and were served by friendly and informal people. We especially recommend their tuna steaks and sea food in general.

Il Gitano is a very good choice if you want to taste a typical cuisine of the region and not to pay a fortune. Prices are very ok, food is delicious, and our lovely host did everything to make us come back the day after. We equally enjoyed pasta, pizza and seafood. You won't regret anything you try, but local... More

A lovely evening for the four of us, my wife and I and 2 teenagers. The staff catered for the teenage taste for pizza e patatine while we enjoyed a lovely meal. My highlight was zuppe di cozze, the most generous bowl of mussels in a salsa piccante! We also enjoyed mixed seafood and sea bass with mixed grilled vegetables... More
