Dined last night here. Hotel gave it a big wrap. Had Caponata and obergine parmagiama for starters which were nice. My spaghetti Ricci was uninspiring, the lamb shank was better. The best course was the ravioli crostacia. Wine reasonably priced. The best aspect was its location on Via Roma where many Sicilian families gather of an evening.

We spent 5 nights in a hotel close to Porto Empedocle and went every night (by car) to Restaurant Salmoriglio to enjoy the superb food that this place offers. This is definitely the best restaurant in this area and I can strongly recommend it, excellent dishes, very good service, reasonable prices. Five stars!

We stopped in Porto Empedocle for a quick lunch and we encountered the restaurant Salmoriglio on our way... Such a luck!! The food is great and the service even better! Definitely the place to go for a lunch or dinner when you're in the neighbourhoods!

Excellent service and food. The swordfish was great and so was the caponata. This guy has a panza piena and cuore contento.

We arrived early for dinner, actually the only patrons there. The food was very delicious, however the service not too friendly. Would have given 5 stars excellent, if we had been treated better.

Our experience here with 4 italian speaking friends was very disappointing. The waiter who was the owner was very dismissive when asked what was in the specialty of the house. Service was pushy, they didn't have the items on the menu and only told us what they wanted to give us. We almost walked out. It is really not hard... More

Not been having a great culinary experience down here in Agrigento to be honest!! If you don't want pizza then you are kind of out of luck. But hallelujah, Salmoriglio saved us this evening!! Table for two procured via my pigeon Italian - two lovely first courses including a nice touch with the squid ink infused crackers. VERY well cooked... More

Had fritto misto which was good but just the usual 2 prawns, swordfish steak & calamari. The beer (Tarì) very good. On the expensive side.
