Fish and the Vongole are very fresh. Very good service (even throw in the Caponata for us to try). Should also try the boiled octopus.

If you want to experience a local osteria, where to taste Seasonal Dishes and local food, this is the place. It might represent the best option for a not pretentious but very genuine meal. Fish is absolutely fresh and the place very cosy and familiar. This place is very appreciated in town thanks also to Michele, the owner. Very kind... More

There was nothing wrong with any of the dishes, but none was good. I assume this IS typical flavor, but not ours. We've been eating all over Sicily, first time all the dishes weren't our palate. Good service, good atmosphere, good deserts.

A staff member of the Museum, which by the way is stunning, recommended this charming place where the locals dine. It was a slight walk going back in the direction of Trapani center off Via Fardella. ask for directions. We loved this little place. I had the best Pasta con Sarde, the fish is fresh, even had dessert. The bill... More

My husband and I ate here one night. Very fresh fish! They bring you the catch of the day to choose from and how you would like it prepared. The restaurant is kind of hard to find but worth the struggle. It is not located in the old center.

This is a fantastic, rustic restaurant in Trapani. Everything we ate was outstanding but the best dish, by far, is the busiate con ricci - it was spectacular and will be visiting again this summer.

Fresh fish to choose and then it is cooked to perfection. Hors d'oeuvres satisfied the vegetarian member of our party although not all of the dishes were vegetable. Although clearly popular with local people there is an English menu available which is just as well as very little English is spoken. Service is relaxed as there is only one waiter... More

We showed up without reservations. The young waiter summoned another young man who spoke english. He had one table available if we could finish in 90 minutes, before the folks with reservations arrived. Mussels and shrimp for appetizers followed by swordfish and clams with white wine and Sicilian lemon cake for dessert. Yummy and fresh as could be! All for... More

Recommended by Noemi&Fabio. I had a bit of hard time to find it. The owner does not speak english so I had kind of use hand and gestures to communicate. Food was excellent and surprisingly cheap. I had veggie and potatoes as an entree. Very tasty, fresh. Then lobster soup. Wonderful! I think I have paid less than thirty euro.... More
