We had read reviews about the seafood couscous and went for that reason. We were hugely disappointed. The seafood in the couscous was non existent save a few bits of fish. We had a half liter of white wine that appeared to be a different shade of white (more cider like) than the wine served to Italian tables. Water, 1/2... More

We decided to have lunch here and asked the owner to just surprise us. Great idea. We sat in the back - courtyard - and the food was great!

There are so many great places to savor Sicilian Cuisine in Marsala but our experience here was exceptional. After a long day of walking we were ready to relax and have a great meal. Unfortunately it was about 6pm and most places were not serving dinner until 7pm or later. We decided to go with our group of 8 to... More

We had passed this place some times and decided to have a local red wine (nero d'avola) and some tastings (half a chicken, pasta al ragout, sardines, tabule, zucchini etc). All was highly fresh and tasteful. Very friendly family business and great priced.

When in Marsala you need to try the fish cous cous the city is worldwide famous for. I googled "best cous cous in Marsala" and this place came up on top of the list, it took us a few minutes to find it. The place is tucked away in one of the old city's small alleysand it is not exactly... More

I don't understand how did they even receive the good feedbacks. Me and my boyfriend asked every price of the food and the drink that we wanted to order. And the owner told us each one spend maximum 7 or 8 €. Since we were not really hungry we orderd a pasta (8 €), a panino (3 €), and one... More

We also stumbled across this by accident. Not what you would call a traditional restaurant & there was the added challenge that the owners didn't speak any english and we didn't speak Italian. We selected a range of dishes that were on display in their deli-like cabinet, which were delivered on a large plate for us to share. Some of... More

The trattoria recommended to us was closed and we found this place along our stumbles while meandering the vias. We asked for particular dishes as advertised on the sign on the main street but none were available (a bit sly). As we were too tired to look for another place and the rest of the family couldn't decide what to... More
