This is a very pleasant restaurant on the main street of the very busy tourist village of Erice. We were attracted by its varied menu and to be honest its reasonable prices. The pasta, however, was probably the best I have ever eaten at any...More

I will be dreaming of this restaurant until I can visit Erice again....the appetizers, the pasta -- which was divine -- the coffee, and the dessert were my favorite!

We had lunch quite late a day full of tourists. The food was very good and the service excelent. It is a very big restaurant but with many small rooms so you do not feel people. To recommend

Il segreto del successo della "La Prima Dea" e la continua ricerca di abbinamenti gastronomici e, la grande scrupolosita nella ricerca di materie prime freschissime e di prima qualita che oggi vengono sapientemente selezionate dal titolare non che successore ALESSANDRO CAVASINO.

Il locale resta aperto tutto l'anno ed e caratteristico visitarlo quando Erice e avvolta dalla nebbia, ed il camino acceso da un'atmosfera magica.

Il locale e attrezzato con un bar fornitissimo che all'occasione prepara ottime cioccolate calde da abbinare agli splendidi e gustosissimi dolcetti di mandorla.
