“Great Pizza and more”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We ate at Le Vele twice and both times had good food and excellent service from our waiter Salvatore. We went alone first and then invited the couple we were renting from to join us. The pizza was excellent and cheap, the house wine good and what set it apart from a lot of other pizza restaurants we passed walking around Trapani was that it was a real restaurant.
Spacious, with attractive décor and white tablecloth service but not more expensive.
Two dishes that stood out for me beside the pizza were the large, excellent smoked fish platter and something our guest ordered, potatoes with mozzarella cheese, that sounded heavy but tasted like heaven.
Dinner for 2 with wine was 32.50 Euros and a bargain for a real dining experience.
I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Trapani.

“very very good restaurant”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We are a family from Sweden who spent a week in August in Trapani. Three of the evenings we ate at this restaurant at table twelve and we really loved this restaurant. Everything was great both the food and the staff were fantastic. Their pizza frutti di mare with anchovies makes you nostalgic for Trapani.

“Fantastic Pizza”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Possibly the tastiest pizza we have ever had and is amazing value. This is a nice little restaurant where the service was prompt and the food delicious. Our server spoke fluent English as he lived in Preston for a few years, a lovely guy who really looked after us as we visited twice as the pizza was amazing (I've said that three times now). However, they could do with some music; candles on the tables; matching uniforms - a few new ideas and then this would really polish up the overall product. Thank you for taking care of us!
