Description: Il ristorante “Al Vicoletto” nasce da un'idea di daniele ed emanuela che nel 2006 dopo varie esperienze lavorative all'estero e in italia coronarono il loro sogno aprendo questo piccolo ristorante nel centro storico di Trapani. Dal 2011 si e' aggiunto a questa realta' marco, ex skipper oceanico professionista di imbarcazioni a vela che un giorno per caso trovandosi a trapani conobbe emanuela nello stesso ristorante dove ora lavora...da quell'anno per amore e per passione decise di rimanere a trapani e di non andare piu' via. La nostra cucina si basa esclusivamente su prodotti a km. 0 provenienti dalla zona fao 37 per il pesce fresco...il locale propone un menu' ristretto giornaliero, differente in base alla disponibilita' di prodotti locali utilizzando solo ed esclusivamente materie prime locali di ottima qualita'. Essendo dotato di una cucina molto piccola e di pochi tavoli la nostra cucina si basa su piatti molto semplici e poco elaborati preparati rigorosamente al momento.

Make reservations - the place is small and you DO NOT want to mis this place if you are in Trapani. It is in an alley ( aren't all the best ones?) but it is not too hard to find.
We took Daniele's advice and started with the fish "tasting appetizers". Unbelievable. Fresh fresh mussels, tuna and other assorted local delicacies! We also asked him to recommend our main courses which included scampi, sea bass, and cuttlefish - all lusciously prepared! We went with his different wine recommendations which did not disappoint.
Marco, the chef, came out to great us and actually walked us out afterwards to ensure that we knew the way back to our hotel. This ranked as one of the very best meals we have EVER had in Sicily. The prices are unbelievably reasonable for such fabulous food. Do not hesitate - GO!!

3 days before i went in this restaurant i phoned to this restaurant from my country and i booked a table for 5 persons , it was a bit difficult to find but with a map its not so hard , its in the middle of the old town better find it by walk .

when we went in there was a nice atmosphere a small restaurant well kept , daniele the owner prepared a nice table a he gave us some suggestions about the food and wine he also went out of the menu to serv our child and prepared some pasta with simple tomato sauce , i had a good fish of the day two of us took sword fish and the other a nice tagliatelle with mushroom , the surprise came when we asked for the deserta and i told him that my wife had her birthday , as she order the cassata siciliana he put the candle on it and he offer a spumante wine on the house and he open it as method tradizionel , he brouth a big knife and he cut the neck of the bottle . i am not surprise today that its the number one on trip advisor reviews its value for money and excellent for only 20 euros per person onlyyyyy .......

Had a fantastic meal in Al Vicoletto, Daniele and his partner make you feel fantastically welcome (unlike many other "restaurants" in Trapani!) and based on other reviews on here we pretty much let him choose our food and wine!

Must say, his choices didn't disappoint!

The mixed, raw, fish starter was to die for and very unique, we followed this up with past with clams & mussels which was also amazing. Even managed to squeeze in a fish dish and dessert!

Wine choice also was fantastic, and two bottles later, we enjoyed a convivial stroll (stagger?) home.

It IS squeezed in down an alleyway, and is small, but this really just adds to the charm and experience.

You must book (even if it's for the next night) as it's pretty much full up every night.

Can't wait to go back!!

We had a lovely evening at this restaurant. The food wasn't as great as the positive reviews would indicate, but the atmosphere and especially the waiter made the experience. We tried several other restaurants before arriving here, but they were full and at one of them we were turned away quite rudely (it's enough to simply say: Sorry, we're booked.) Al Vicoletto was also full when we arrived but the waiter who was single-handedly taking care of the dining room asked us to wait 20 minutes, and sure enough in exactly 20 minutes, he opened the door for us to enter. We found the food a bit heavy and not as well executed as it might have been but still tasty. Service was delightful and the atmosphere was relaxed.

Perfect service and very good authentic Sicilian food. Faboulous mixed antipasti and gnocchi al pistacchio. Would definitely come back.
