Seared Octopus, it was delicious. The bottles of wine started at €17 and tasted beautiful. Service attentive and charming. The food was delicious. We liked the quirk or having to knock on the door to be let in to the sound of a large bolt rasping behind the bold wooden door. A cosy, romantic environment and a good selection of... More

I'm not writing this review so that the restaurant can read it and improve their food. It has become obvious that they do not care about the quality of their dinner at all. This restaurant is owned by criminals who want to only take your money and make as much profit as possible. Your experience or the love of food... More

My wife and I went for lunch and were quite happy with everything. The service was good with an excellent English-speaking server. The atmosphere was comfortable and relatively quiet for Sicily. I had a very tasty antipasti of rolled swordfish around eggplant and Gorgonzola with a main of crab sauce pasta. My wife opted for veggies and the swordfish. All... More

Fairly decent restaurant in the Main Street of Trapani, nice outside dining area. Food was ok, mixed grill was pretty tasty - probably a 6.5/10. Service was ok too. Note though if you don't finish your bread, it's thrown back in to the bread bin and served out again. Didn't like that especially as the bread is served as a... More

We ate here for lunch one day - have to say, great food and really was impressed by it. However the staff really do need a personality transplant and be friendly! Worth a visit none the less for the food - awesome!

The food and service at Ai Lumi are both first rate. (I believe the restaurant has a Michelin star.) It's on the pedestrian walkway that is brimming with shops and restaurants in the heart of Trapani, which makes it convenient. The night we were there, the walkway was a virtual promenade of families, friends, locals, and tourists just strolling up... More

I really don't understand how this place gets any positive reviews as after years of traveling and using tripadvisor it actually got me to register here. We were just looking for a quick and easy dinner as we just arrived in Sicily and were a bit tired so we said "Let's just go with Lonely Planet reccommendation it should be... More

This restaurant is certainly deserving of its five! The food is wonderful, in taste and presentation, the fresh fish was outstanding, but certainly the pasta was brilliant too. I can definitely recommend the stuffed swordfish starter and main of gnocchi with pistachios. The waiters were very efficient and friendly, we weren't left waiting for anything. I would suggest making a... More

During our holiday we went for a dinner at Ai Lumi. The atmosphere indoors is very nice and quiet. Staff are very friend and helpful. Food is very good and genuine and portions are quite large, which makes it very good value for money.
