we have been there the last day of our staying in Trapani, and we had the best meal of all in our trip to Sicily. Pasta fresca with shrimps and sward-fish butarga (eggs)... delicious. It is a must have if you are in Trapani!
The wine of the house is also very good, and the price is reasonable!

Ristorante appena fuori lo "struscio" trapanese; pochi coperti e personale molto gentile e disponibile. Cucina tipica locale, curata ed ingredienti ottimi.

For tourists: there is no english menu or english speaker waiter, but it's worth the effort of bringing a goof dictionary with you.

We found this restaurant by accident while walking around the area. You really have to go look for this restaurant it is not on the main but on a side street. The pasta was homemade and different which made it all the better. We had the caponata , delicious ... reminded me of my mothers! We also had the fish which was fresh. It is unfortuante that this little restaurant is not getting the merit it derserves , the waitor/owner was very friendly and the food was very good!

I have been 4 times to eat here. I like the food very much because it is different, though very tasty. Only drawback is that you are not given a menu so you cannot budget your bill.

We were five nights in trapani and passed this restaurant every night, but never saw anyone there. We checked the trip advisor reviews and decided to give it a try. It was not a good experience. We were the only people there on a busy Saturday night. The waiter was very helpful and explained the options. As previous diners said there is no written menu. We had caponata, very tasty, followed by couscous and then tuna ( in season here and excellent in every restaurant). The White wine was local. The food did not seem fresh, the quantities were meagre, we had tuna several times on the trip, but this was by far the worst, overcooked and small portions. The couscous compared to other restaurants contained very little fish. The wine was tasteless and not cheap. We had a wonderful trip in Sicily the wine was amazing and the food excellent, but not at this restaurant. The value for money was very poor and we paid a similar price for our meal here as we did elsewhere. It looks like the locals are avoiding this restaurant and it must be very difficult for them to maintain good standards without regular customers.
