Do reserve for a table. It's very busy. Portion is good for sharing between 3-4 ppl. We had calamari, seafood cous-cous, grilled prawns and the best local pasta. Asked for a local white wine recommendation and fitted our dish perfectly.

Very very good food! Excellent service. We first were a little bit suspicious and afraid that it just might be a fancy restaurant with too good critics. But it turned out to be a great restaurant! Very tasty interior and the food is amazing. We had the caponata as starter and it was the best we tried so far. As... More

This is a small restaurant with very good service although menu is somewhat limited. Dishes are cooked to order and good wines

Not sure what we can add---this place is already famous and well-regarded. We went for the couscous, a large plate easily shared by two people, and enjoyed the interesting tastes as well as the overall experience. Highly recommended.

Risotto with seafood and mushrooms was best ever. Sardines in tomato sauce was tasty and juicy. We got the information about this place in Palermo when we were having lunch in very simple family trattoria. Was worth to go there for sure.

Lovely meal with Sicilian wine , friendly staff . We consider it as one of the best restaurants in Trapani . If you do not like fish, try the... More

My wife and I had dinner there last night. We had 8 PM reservations (when the open) but arrived 20-25 minutes early. After a bit of hesitation they seated us, let us order water and wine and took our orders precisely at 8. We had terrific dishes--an eggplant caponata that was terrific; my wife had the sea bass in aluminum... More

Try the tuna appetizer with black pepper or the swordfish pasta with tuna roe. Both great. Note that you can be right outside the restaurant and not see it. There was no external sign I could see.

Busiata can pesto Trapanese il something you can't live without trying it. The staff was very pleasant and we got great help and advice on what to eat and also to drink. The wines are amazing.
