We ha a very nice meal here during a few days in Scicli recently. It is quite small but well sited in the centre of the old town. The name board says "drunken fish" under the main Baqqala title, but I am not sure why! The menu is I think a mix or Italian and Sicilian words but with English... More

We had lunch on New Year's Eve (lunch, not dinner). We sat on the wonderful terrace in the sun. Service was outstanding, staff super kind and nice. Food was gorgeous ~ we had wonderful fish. Wine was an amazing Sicilian traminer. In a holiday where we have been having wonderful food everywhere, this was with no doubt the place where... More

Baqqala is an excellent restaurant. They specialise in seafood. We have been there a number of times. It is very cosy to dine outside in the summer and autumn. The service is good...sometimes a bit too efficient. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the music good to listen to, without being invasive. Prices are fairly high. Highly recommended.

This small fish restaurant in Scicili is well worth seeking out. Pasta dishes were very well flavoured with a balanced use of spices (arabic influence ?). Fritto misto was generous with the fish coated in alight crispy batter. Even the bread (part of the "cover") was much better than usual. Didn,t get to try the deserts but they also looked... More

We had just arrived in Scicli (on a Friday!), and decided to try the Baqqala withour a reservation. Although they were very busy, and expecting to get busier, they found a table for us. Service was great, and the so was the food!

Found on Tripadvisor and after the first meal we booked for the following night. Relaxed atmosphere with background of jazz tunes. Light seafood dishes cooked to our taste included perfectly seared tuna and tasty mussels. No room for dessert !

Still the best restaurant, we think, in Scicli. Lovely setting in a small area near a palazzo. Staff very welcoming, and when we could not make the original time, due to a minor flood where we stay, they kept the reservation open. Food delicious and so much to choose from. A fitting end to our trip to Scicli.

This is a small, well-known restaurant just off the main square. We did not know about it until we checked in at our hotel. The receptionist told us that we should have a reservation as seating is limited each night. He made the reservation, and we noticed that many people who wanted to eat there were being politely turned away.... More

We ate here once on our trip to Scicli on the recommendation of our hotel and were not disappointed. Excellent antipasto and fish.

We had a nice dinner at Baqqala. We turned up without a booking and were offered a table outside. The outdoor seating was in a small piazza which was lovely. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The waitress spoke excellent English and was very understanding about our nut allergies. The food was good without being great although in the...
