“Nice place to share a bottle of wine, average food.”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Food was about average at best. Outdoor seating along Vittorio Emanuele is nice for a dinner atmosphere & people watching but there are many better choices where the food is concerned.

“Wonderful restaurant in Trapani”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We stumbled upon this spot while wandering the streets of Trapani on our vacation. It was a perfect late lunch spot! We sat outside and enjoyed a leisurely meal. Both of our choices, pasta with trapanese pesto, and the couscous con pesce were excellent. The service was really good too - we felt it was attentive, but we were not rushed at all.

“Excellent dining in Trapani”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My wife and I had two very good meals here. Definitely book ahead. They were among the best meals that we had in Sicily. Among the standouts: an off-menu daily special of pasta and prawns, casareccie alla trapanese (eggplant/almond/tomato sauce), and fritto misto. The best, however, was the rabbit. Great wine list of Sicilian wines. And good service. If weather permits (and it usually does, it seems, in Sicily) sit outside for great people watching.

“Started ok but deteriorated as it got busy”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Went in at 7.30 and it was empty. Very helpful and attentive service. As the restaurant filled up it became chaotic and the service level dropped badly - attracting anybody to do anything was a nightmare. Took 25 minutes to get the bill. Food was good and the ambience pleasing. The town is very busy, almost gridlocked, at night and parking anywhere nearby is another nightmare. If you can walk to it from your hotel OK but not recommended if you need to get there by car, even a taxi unless you fancy a long walk from where driving and parking is easier.

“the service quality could be better but all in all food was good”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The location is very good and there was a queue to get inside. We reservated our table the night before. The staff is very busy and it shows in the quality of their hospitality. I ate sweet and sour tuna. It was excellent and the portion was big even without side orders. My friend had the veal and it was perfectly cooked. One of us ordered garlic swordfish which was a little disappointment compared to the previous evenings Al Vicoletto's swordfish.
