From outside you can't know about this fabulous place for Sicilian cuisine. We enjoyed the sardines skewers and the artichoke flan as starters. We have not eaten something comparable before. Also the ravioli with goat cheese and the Risotto were delicious. White house wine was nice and light. We have been there off season on a Thursday at 7:30 pm... More

An exellent restaurant with reasonable good service and a little presumptous kitchen. Uncfortunately for us "tourists" sometimes we reserch something genuine and even if less refined but genuine and really local. The place is frequented by young and locals which is usually a very goos sign. In the end we were satisfied even if we considered a little overpriced probably... More

Had the cod fish pasta and the caponata with red wine and both were tasty dishes. The pasta was done al dente and the fish was tasty. The sesame stick was a bit stale though. Price comparable to others on the street. They had an English menu that is always helpful.

Bad weather meant this place didn't initially look like it was open as there was no outside seating. Thankfully it was and we enjoyed tasty Sicilian dinner (inside) of tuna cous cous (very large tuna steak) and a turbot fish dish (served unusually in a bag!) Service very friendly too. Probably best restaurant of our Sicily trip so far and... More

We went to Expanificio because our B&B host recommended it to us but altogether we found the food being nothing special. After 2 weeks in Sicily, this was nothing memorable. The service was ok.

Unfortunately we had to eat inside on a sunny day. The service was ok but not great (perhaps as we only ordered a primo). But the pasta was really good (vongole, carbonara, arrabiata). Good food for a decent price.

Had dinner here as it was quite late when we arrived Agrigento and was recommended by our B&B owner. Ordered the bread crimped swordfish and seafood pasta - both about average of maybe just above. Happen to compare to a bar/cafe standard we just came from Trapani, would have expect more from a restaurant. Prices are neither expensive but definitely... More
