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.

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...More
