“Great restaurant in Marsala”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Five of us had a lunch in Trattoria Garibaldi, which was recommended by a shopkeeper in the nearby fish-market, in Marsala. The original and authentic cous-cous with fish soup was delightful. Fish were fresh. And the typical dessert, accompanied by marsala wine, was fantastic.
Most of all, the owner and the waitress were most hospitable.

“Mixed reports previously don't do this place justice!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The restaurant was outdoors. The square is attractive, surrounded by historic buildings and with a good breath of air.
Previous reports of surly waiters seems completely wrong to us, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was efficient but we didn't feel at all rushed.
There was a very extensive antipasti buffet, but we went for Zuppa di Cozze, which is not designed to be a "soup" in the English sense as some reviewers imagine, but mussels steamed in a herby sauce. Their version was lovely, full of fresh herb flavours, with good meaty mussels.
For main course I had scalapine alla Marsala, which was absolutely fab and my partner had fish of the day which was perfectly cooked and tasty.
Tartafu and fresh fruit salad for dessert completed an excellent meal and a glass of Marsala was the perfect end!
Don't be put off by the detractors, this place is well worth a visit!

“Great ambiance but that's it.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This restaurant was recommended to us by both our guide book and the hotel. I agree it does have a great location and fantastic ambiance in the piazza that it is located. It may be a fixture in Marsala but it has poor food and terrible service. As we were only there for one night we didn't get a chance to try somewhere else but there has to be better restaurants in that town. Learn from our mistake go somewhere else.

“delicious local cuisine in front of the old church”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

delicious seafood and local wines. Very pleasant atmosphere with tables set outside. Perfect for a dreamy romantic dinner and equally perfect for a lovely family meal.

“Surprised”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Based on the trip advisor comments we were not sure about visiting Garibaldi but we were pleasantly surprised. The buffet was excellent and the pasta which both my wife and i shared at lunch was also excellent. Based on our luncheon experience, we came back for dinner and were not disappointed.
