After an exhausting but amazing day we came here on suggestion from our B&B, and were so very happy we did!! Everything was perfect starting with the beef carpaccio...oh my! And I had pacchere with a roasted red pepper light cream sauce with zucchini and sausage, my husband had spaghetti con vognole. I cannot put into words how truly sublime our meal was. If we had more time I would without question come back!!

Our B+B host recommended this place. It was good without being memorable. He had also recommended Opera, which was an absolute delight. I would opt for the latter.

We landed in Sicily, and after a night at the wonderful Mandaranova hotel, we visited Agrigento on our way to Menfi. By luck we stopped by a beautiful church, and just underneath was Expanifico, the restaurant. It was our first restaurant visit in Sicily, and we all agree, it was the best. The caponata was fantastic, and the fresh tuna was delicious. My daughter had the pasta with pistachio pesto - it was incredible. The service was professional and helpful. A wonderful experience.

With a mention in Gambero Rosso and a Bib Gourmand in Michelin, we expected well-executed cuisine with a Sicilian twist. Unfortunately we were a bit underwhelmed.

The prawns for the starter course were not cleaned (we were not the only table to spend a few difficult minutes trying to clean out the entrails of the prawn with a knife and fork, leaving an unappetizing mess in our plate). The Sicilian roll (specialty dish) was okay but unfortunately nobody thought to ask us about side dishes so we had a plate of meat with nothing to accompany it.

The desserts were fine (moelleux of chocolate and panna cotta).
