Review of Lo Zingaro - CLOSED

Lo Zingaro
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 June 2012

Would probably not have stopped at this place had I not previously read Tripadvisor reviews...but glad we did. Quiet when we were in, and a little bit haphazard somehow, but not in a bad way!
As in common with most places we ate, not a lot of english spoken but between our little bit of italian and the staff's wish to be helpful, we managed just fine!
Again in common with most places we ate on Sicily, house wine really good and great value at E2,50 a quartrer litre (2 glasses). 3 of us had pizza...really good and mine was the no cheese one covered in the most delicious chopped fresh tomatoes, garlic and olive oil.... My husband had fish of the day, lovely white bream like (told us the name in Italian but don;t know what it was!)
For afters we had lovely fresh water melon, and one of us had the almon parfait....delicious. Then great coffee of course!
What was really greta here was the bread ....after we had been sitting a few minutes a guy in cheffy sort of clothers came out from somewhere with a pile of freshly baked, steaming, crusty small "pizza base" type breads and proceeded to go round all the tables doling them out......fantastic!
Only thing here was that cos it had been quite a windy day their credit card machine was not working, but luckily we had enough cash. And once again we found that 4 of us ate and drank well for a lot less than we would have in the UK (E60 - E80 on average while on Sicliy)

We ate twice in this restaurant and the owner was very friendly and accommodating.
Try the swordfish in citrus fruits sauce, freshly fried seafood, the Sicilian capponatta, sardines stuffed with breadcrumbs and spices and for desert sweet ricotta ravioli.
Good wine list with many local wines. Reccommend Alcamo white wines.
