Out and about with wife in a night off, we stopped here after visiting the annex shop (definitely worth a visit too, all typical Sicilian products): great romantic night, beautiful food and wine, quick and lovely service, really enjoyed the meal! Recommended!

We waited over 40 minutes to be served our starter. No one paid attention to us.
The starter was supposed to be « selection of the month ».it was actually a platter of cheeses. 40 minutes to wait for a platter of cheeses and the restaurant was not busy at all.
We then waited for another 40 minutes to get our main dishes without any apologies and the three of them were served separately with wait between each of them. People coming after us had their dishes before us. The food is very average and the pasta was under cooked.

A proper disappointment from the begining to the end.

If you are ever in Palermo, this restaurant is worth the 30 min drive down the coast.

Ristorante Al Burgo offers unique spin on traditional Sicilian dishes, catering to a worldly palate looking a wonderful experience.

Nestled in Castellammare del Golfo between the pedestrian zone of Corso Giuseppe Garbaldi and the marina, down some enchanted rustic marble steps, sits a unique gem.

My first experience was like this… My GF and I, were sat around the time of sunset, gazing upon a gorgeous view of the mountains and the vast Tyrrhenian Sea. The table was situated on the serpentine steps that cascade through a tiny corridor down to the fishing port below. Music, people, and the sounds of the ocean filled the streets as we dined.

Our first dish was a fantastic mix of Sicilian favorites: fresh fish, fruit, and vegetables; new combinations of these typical foods join with different Mediterranean flavors. Across the board the selection was superb.

For our prima plate we shared two pasta dishes that turned out to be a complete dream. Our server recommended a dish I‘ve never had before. It was a busiate pasta blended with light tomato and oil based and topped with prawns and fish eggs. My eyes lit up with delight as I embraced the saw the meal and embrace the smell. It was outstanding. My Gf had the squid dyed linguine with delicious prawns and sea urchins. She couldn’t believe how much her dish took her back to her childhood when she would collect sea urchins with her late grandmother. It was really a joy just to see her face as she devour it.

For desert we had the semifreddo; a beautiful semi-frozen blend of hot espresso and the coffee gelato, comes together perfectly.

Hands down one of the best meals I’ve had in Italy/ in my life. It was so good that even on our 3 day trip we had to go back a second time. I got the pesto gnocchi that time and after that the perfectly cooked tuna, it was simply delicious. She had the sea urchin pasta again. I cannot wait to go back.

We have had the tuna (with delicious red onion marmalade) perfectly done. And the mussel soup - so so delicious. Nice outdoor space. Good service. Went back the next evening. We recommend.

Beautifully decorated and located on a stone terrace in the old town, this was our favorite restaurant during our stay in Sicily. We came for the couscous and neither the meat nor seafood version disappointed. Add in a great salad, a nice wine and some complimentary cannoli and this was a meal to remember. But best of all was the delightful young owner/chef Guiseppe Russo and his dad who joined us and made us feel at home. Bravo.
