“Set Price Menu”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Although set price menu included wine, tried to say they had run out of house wine and would not offer alternative wine. They eventually offered a beer and one glass of wine, we had to ask for this is was not offered. When meal came, we were told it would be clams, and they served up mussels, expecting us not to know the difference. Would not recommend this restaurant, they are trying it on with tourists.

“good stuff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

We had been two nights in Trapani and we had been twice in Locanda dei Frati. Main reason was that they also offer gluten-free food (for my wife). The food turned out to be excellent; kitchen and service are very good. The restaurant was quite frequented by locals. The restaurant may charge you more for fresh fish (whatever this means); for example, the "calamari ripieni" was EUR 3,00 more expensive than mentioned on the menu because of being fresh.

“Terribly overcooked fish drowned in salty sauce”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

If you have any sense of how good fish tastes, don't get near this restaurant. After heavenly food experiences in Rome, Naples and Palermo, we thought this Trapani restaurant could be added to our list of excellence. Although the service was ok, the main dish (recommended by the waiter and supposedly freshly cooked) was a huge disappointment. The side dish (potatoes baked with cheese) was the best thing of the whole meal... Bad value for money (almost 50 EUR for two people, 2 main dishes, potato side dish, 1 soft drink, mineral water and a glass of wine)... The whole place was almost empty at 8:30 pm even though the waiter urged us to make a reservation to be sure to get a table...

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went there on Saturday and the place was very crowded. We were a group of 8 so we decided to book in advance.
Pizza was good and also the gluten free pizza was appreciated by a friend of us. People was very friendly.

“Unbeatable pasta dishes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

One of the best pastas we ever had - it convincingly celebrates the Sicilian way of perfectly complementing pasta with a tasteful sauce! We can highly recommend to test it yourself.
