We ate at this restaurant on our last night in Sicily. I had the chicken cutlet which was delicious but served without any side dishes. The waiter-suggested antipasto looked good with lots of seafood at the other tables; but we declined the offer. My niece had the spaghetti carbonara and became very sick 2 hours later. There is a limited... More

So we came here from our villa up the coast. It's a very local place - only Italians. We had to wait about 15 minutes to get our group of 7 seated. Not bad - helped by the fact we got there fairly late for lunch. The menu had a nice range of pastas and secondi piatti but the helpful... More

If you want fancy-pants white tableclothes and hotshot presentations, then this isn't your place. But if you want terrific food eaten alongside local families at a superb price, then check out Da Giacomo. If the server offers simply to bring some antipasti, then take him/her up on the offer, since you'll get a table crowded with every bivalve, mollusk, fish,... More

Get over any fancy place you may have been before. This trattoria is deeply essential but offer a wide variety if choices. At a glance it looks like a take away but the few tables behind the few tables behind the counter are the stage of this play. Do not mind the cheap look, remember to order "sarde alla beccafico"...

We were interested to try out Giacomo’s - voted number 3 of 99 places to eat at Mazara del Vallo but were taken aback by the look of the place. Don’t get me wrong – we’re all for simple, rustic, cheap – but squalid - no. The small space with its few tables and unforgiving neon lighting smelled of stale... More

Ignore the fact the restaurant is off city centre (but you can walk in no time), ignore the busy street and the fact Da Giacomo looks like a butcher shop more then a trattoria. Book in advance, few tables are at the back. We spent 30 Euro in 2 (15 each) with wine and amaro included. The antipasto misto was... More

Lived up to the ratings and hype. This place was recommended by Air BnB provider then saw highly rated on Trip Advisor. Giacomo and his family(?) make you feel like you are in their home once you pass the swinging doors. Sfuso wine and incredible non-stop seafood dishes that are not overly complex but incredibly tasty with presentation. Using my... More

Although sometimes I am questioning the rating of a restaurant in a village/city using Tripadvisor, i must say that this one was spot on! Although none of the people in the restaurant were speaking a lot of English, they took all the time to help us get a wonderful arancini, pasta, sardines and chicken.. We loved all of it.

Truely authentic, Giacomo offers a wide variety of vegetarian, meat and fish dishes as well as roasted chieken. You can choose your food from the counter and take it out or eat it in the small back room with a handful of tables. The food is very good and authentic and you will have trouble to pay more than 10€... More
