“very good family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012 via mobile

simply the perfect place if you want to have great food at a very good value for money. service was excellent considering the huge amount of diners that were present. The atmosphere is a bit noisy but it is to be expected since it is frequented by many locals. Overall a very good experience and I recommend it to anyone to try it up.

“Rude service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

Every basic waiter school would teach you to serve your guests at the same time - we were not hundreds but only in two - and they would also recommend you to apologize with your customers if you bring something different than what's been ordered. And you would bring back an hot meal to the lucky diner who was served right and he was politely waiting (~10 minutes) for the co-diner to be served with the right dish. I know, you do not like soccer but you have to bear the unending screech of television speakers. Well, if on top of that you find a 4.20€ service (a kind of mandatory-like tip) added in your receipt, I am sure you would figure out the class of this street place.

“Poor service, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012 via mobile

I went with my family to this restaurant despite another recommendation from the hotel because Capotavola seemed to have, from the appearance, a nice atmosphere and accurate service. I was wrong, though. We had a sit and chose the dishes quickly because we were pretty hungry. It was about 21:15. When the clock reached 22:10 we decided to ask about our order, since there was no reason to take so long: we had chosen pasta, grilled fish and 2 regular steaks from the menu. The waiter said the food "was arriving", but unfortunately we had to wait another half an hour. We realized our order had been forgotten and the cook probably started to make it at the moment we complained. Nevertheless, the worse part was when the maitre said the preparation of the meat was the reason for almost 1,5 hour of waiting... What a shame! It would have been much better if he had said the truth and simply that they did apologise for the mistake.

“Excellent food and service in cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012 via mobile

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Agrigento. This is definetly one of the best Sicilian restaurants ever. Enjoy the good quality and priced pizza's (i.e. pizza tuna, pizza ai formaggio), the antipasta di mare (plate with fresh seafood), the tagliate di manzo (sliced beef with rocket and balsamico) and the pesce griglia mista (mixed grilled fish). The good quality food, the cosy cave atmosphere, the friendly Sicilian staff and good service makes this our favorite place to dine in Sicily.

Service quality depends on who you deal with, but overall rather good. Food very tasty, original, and value for money.
