We both had a fish dish and loved it. It was plentiful and the wine recommended was very tasty. Excellent location and a nice atmosphere.

After a bad experience in a nearby restaurant we decided to try 'A Lampara as it was suggested by some locals. Food was great!! Loved the "Spaccatelle alla crema di scampi e gamberi al pistacchio" which is one of the traditional plates! Prawn cocktail amazing! Fritto misto was also good but the portion too small!

My daughter and I keep coming back - many restaurants have similar prices, but the service is really friendly and helpful (my daughter asked for aubergine to be added to her spaghetti dish and they we're happy to oblige, albeit surprised!) The food we had was very tasty, we've mainly had the spaghetti dishes, seemed plenty to eat.

Stop there by coincidence and got a tuna caponata, busiate trapanese and busiate with tuna ragù (a kind of bolognese sauce made using tuna instead if meat). The caponata was good but busiate were simply delicious! Reasonable price and very nice staff.

We've been there few days ago. Nice, smiley face kindly invited us to check the menu, without any pressure. We decided to check the tourist menu (15EUR per person) and we were amazed. I ordered busiate alla norma and sword fish, for this we had a small welcoming meal (bread with lots of spieces), low-alcoholic melon drink and after the... More

The wine was the only good thing! The bread from the bruchetta was like 3 days old. The fresh tuna was not fresh and the entrecote was 5mm thick and over cocked! I even think it was more like a snitzel.... The worst 54 euros we have ever spend!

This trattoria by the sea has indoor and outdoor seating area. It was quite busy and we did have to wait a while for our order to be taken and our food to arrive but when it did it was delicious. We had an octupus salad to share as a starter and it was lovely. I was quite jealous of... More

Friendly waiters and a nice atmosphere, but the pizza was probably the worst we had in 3 weeks. If i had to guess i would say it was frozen pizza. An other table had pasta and it booket ok but we did not try it.
