The waiter here was extremely rude/unfriendly and we can only guess that it was because we were participants at one of the Schools at the Ettore Majorana Centre. The staff spoke English and the service was quick. The seafood pasta was reasonable but the grilled...More

We had lunch here during a working visit. The food was below average, the dessert came in a cheap plastic cup and even the espresso was served in plastic.

Staff is kind, but food can be bad. I had dinner and lunch a few times here. One time they gave me a cappresse salad (cheese and tomato) and ALL tomatoes were totally green! color green! horrible! There are better options in Erice.

Because we were a very large group (about 18) and we were all very hungry, we had a very large sample of what is available from the menu at Massimo. Every fish dish was wonderful, especially the swordfish. The pastas didn't miss once, the sausage...More

We stopped by at Massimo to have a break from a long trip from Palermo and high temperatures in Trapani. Nice cosy family like restaurant at the very entrance of Erice. We had only a coffee but walking towards the toilette (which is the cleanest...More
