This small fish restaurant in Scicili is well worth seeking out. Pasta dishes were very well flavoured with a balanced use of spices (arabic influence ?). Fritto misto was generous with the fish coated in alight crispy batter. Even the bread (part of the "cover") was much better than usual. Didn,t get to try the deserts but they also looked... More

We had just arrived in Scicli (on a Friday!), and decided to try the Baqqala withour a reservation. Although they were very busy, and expecting to get busier, they found a table for us. Service was great, and the so was the food!

Found on Tripadvisor and after the first meal we booked for the following night. Relaxed atmosphere with background of jazz tunes. Light seafood dishes cooked to our taste included perfectly seared tuna and tasty mussels. No room for dessert !

Still the best restaurant, we think, in Scicli. Lovely setting in a small area near a palazzo. Staff very welcoming, and when we could not make the original time, due to a minor flood where we stay, they kept the reservation open. Food delicious and so much to choose from. A fitting end to our trip to Scicli.

This is a small, well-known restaurant just off the main square. We did not know about it until we checked in at our hotel. The receptionist told us that we should have a reservation as seating is limited each night. He made the reservation, and we noticed that many people who wanted to eat there were being politely turned away.... More

We ate here once on our trip to Scicli on the recommendation of our hotel and were not disappointed. Excellent antipasto and fish.

We had a nice dinner at Baqqala. We turned up without a booking and were offered a table outside. The outdoor seating was in a small piazza which was lovely. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The waitress spoke excellent English and was very understanding about our nut allergies. The food was good without being great although in the...

Another great restaurant in Scicli ..... Situated on the corner of two narrow streets slightly raised above the street below.... A small intimate restaurant which served the most beautifully cooked no presented food and had wonderful professional service. I found out that this place had been open for 3 years yet the cleanliness and all the soft furnishings made it... More

Terrific little restaurant with space for just 20-25 covers, so be sure to book. The menu is all fish which is cooked and presented to a very high standard. Our group shared a mixture of starters followed by a variety of mains and all were superb. We chose this restaurant for our last evening meal of the summer holiday because... More

This was our third trip to Scicli and our third visit to Baqqala. A key word of warning to anyone wishing to eat here is that you really need to book; they can accommodate about 25 diners at a time and for dinner they offer 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm reservations. We popped in the previous evening and reserved for... More
