This establishment is a bit outside of Agrigento surrounded by fields and olive groves. Driving up the rutted, dirt road from the highway I was a bit apprehensive but when we entered the restaurant my concerns evaporated. It is truly a remarkable establishment, very professional and somewhat formal as all the servers wore vests and ties. The tables were set with linen table clothes, napkins and high quality flatware. We sat on the terrace with a view of the Greek temples across the valley. Simply enchanting. So to the menu. Of course I had the pizza (kokalos) and it was excellent. My wife had the octopus. We both had an insalata mista to start. The food was very good. Along with a bottle of water and Planeta Segreta wine the cost was E53. A reasonable price considering the quality of the food, the level of service and the ambiance.

We came here on the way to visit the Valley of the Temples. This place has a great view of the Temples and has a great veranda area to make the most of the views.

However the food was nothing memorable. We had wanted pizzas but they only serve pizza for dinner (not lunch).

We are foodies and my husband makes the best pizza in the world, constantly experimenting with the crust. Kokalos does not disappoint. Fabulous in every way--octopus salad, pizza with prosciutto, and a homemade fennel sausage that my husband loved so much he carried the leftovers back to the hotel to snack on later! This is a really wonderful discovery in Agrigento!

Good food, friendly service - very crowded and loud, but in a pleasant way. Lots of big, local family groups.As a group of tourists we felt welcome.
Try for a table with a view to the temples of Agrigento.

The view is good. You are not close to the ancient temples, but a good view over their site.

I am not sure whether 3 or 4 stars is the right rating. You wont regret going here, but the food is fine, without being memorable. The service was fine, but we were early in the evening and guess they could be challenged when the place is full.

The dining room is suited for a high volume of tourists and so lacks a little atmosphere. The outside tables were not open when we were there, but they may have a better atmosphete.

One tip. Make sure you know where it is. It's not that well signposted.
