“Marvellous fish and seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Really it's impossible to overrate this restaurant! The best supper I've ever had in Italy! Fresh seafood and grilled fish in special evening menu that includes a bottle of wine and a bottle of mineral water- it was very tasty, and the portions were hardly to be eaten by one person! Really recommend!

“Poor italian restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Next time will check Trip Advisor rather than using a discount voucher we got in the hotel we stayed in Agrigento. The Rustico and Costolette Agnello were OK, however the Capotavola Pizza was the worst one I ever had ... and this happened in Sicily !!!
The house wine was poor quality and the 5% manadatory service was a real shame.

“Fantastic seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Everything was right about this restaurant. I chose a mixed seafood starter followed by a fritto misto of squid and king prawns, all of which were first class. The house white was one of the best I've tasted. It was a local (ish) Bianco D'Alcamo apparently. Every one else in our party was more than happy with what they were served. Highly recommended.

“Probably one of the worst meals I have eaten in Italy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

In retrospect I should have been cautious about places that hand out discount vouchers to all the hotels in the town but we were recommended to go there by the hotel that we stayed in and took them at their word. I had a dismal antipasta misto with caponata in a horrid cheap tinned tomato sauce, more cheap tinned mushrooms in oil, slabs of industrial unidentifiable cheese and ricotta, and a couple of slices of ordinary salami and ham, followed by grilled swordfish that had seen better days - it was as dry as a bone and had that strong fishy 'cod liver oil' taste of fish that is not absolutely fresh. My companion chose a bit better with bresaola to start served with excellent peppery rocket, then good spinach and ricotta ravioli in a sage and butter sauce. We had a stand-off with the waitress over whether or not we could have half a litre of open wine or not. The answer, after much discussion and going backwards and forwards to the kitchen, was 'not' - we could have a whole bottle or several very expensive glasses. The meal was not cheap at €35 a head (we forgot to use our discount vouchers!), and we wished that we had eaten elsewhere.

“slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

We chose to go here after reading some reviews on TA our second night in Agrigento. We were mildly disappointed; our meal was okay, but once the waiter took our order that was it for the night. We could barely even get his attention to get our check. Definitely would not recommend this place; we went to many other restaurants during our stay worth a trip...better atmosphere, food and service!
