Very friendly staff, and we were seated promptly. Everyone in our party enjoyed the dishes --- pasta to meat to fish --- and they were all done very well. The highlight for the party was the fried calamari appertizer. That was by far the best...More

For its location in the main street for restaurants, it's prices were by far the cheapest and most honest. You can either sit inside or in a garden which leads to its South entrance. Good service with a dish I highly recommend, that being the...More

Good local food with house wine. Everything was of a good quality. Decent price considering it is in Erice. Very friendly stuff. We choose to stay in the garden as the setting was very charming and relaxing

This is a very pleasant restaurant on the main street of the very busy tourist village of Erice. We were attracted by its varied menu and to be honest its reasonable prices. The pasta, however, was probably the best I have ever eaten at any...More

Cute little restaurant upstairs. Having read the previous reviews, maybe my expectations were too high. We went there for the cous cous: it was ok, but not something unforgettable, as I hoped. The risotto was not expresso (that in Italy means made from scratch). House...More

Il segreto del successo della "La Prima Dea" e la continua ricerca di abbinamenti gastronomici e, la grande scrupolosita nella ricerca di materie prime freschissime e di prima qualita che oggi vengono sapientemente selezionate dal titolare non che successore ALESSANDRO CAVASINO. Il locale resta aperto tutto l'anno ed e caratteristico visitarlo quando Erice e avvolta dalla nebbia, ed il camino acceso da un'atmosfera magica. Il locale e attrezzato con un bar fornitissimo che all'occasione prepara ottime cioccolate calde da abbinare agli splendidi e gustosissimi dolcetti di mandorla.
