“Excellent Seafood!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We were looking for a restaurant for Sunday lunch, on a day trip from Palermo to Segesta -- and selected Ristorante del Golfo based on the excellent reviews on Gambero Rosso, Slow Food, and TripAdvisor. We had a superb meal -- excellent warm octopus salad and marinated shrimp for antipasti; fantastic bucatini with anchovies and spaghetti with clams for primi; and a beautifully prepared whole sea bass in salt for secondi (The "decomposed" cannoli for dessert was okay but not great - why mess with a cannoli?!). We really liked the owner (a young guy who grew up in the town and bought an existing restaurant 2 years ago and is extremely serious and attentive) and the crowd (mostly Italian tourists and local families). A little pricey, but that is usually the case with a serious fish restaurant. All in all, we thought this was a very enjoyable meal and stop, and would unhesitatingly recommend it.

Very fresh fish and sea fruits selection.
Great warm polpo salad.

“Deserves its high rating”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

A party of 5, we enjoyed excellent service on a not very busy night but with a couple of similarly sized parties in at the same time.
Appetisers were excellent, we all enjoyed the shrimp puffs (which closely resembled tempura) and the three kinds of calamari.
Linguine with prawns and the fettuccine with lobster went down well. Portions not over-large but sufficient.
Good wine list including Cometa, from Planeta , our favourite Sicilian wine maker.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Came here for some fresh seafood and was not disappointed. The fish was very good and the rest of the produce was handled very nicely. The food tasted good and the service was impeccable.

“Excellent Sea food”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We went there and enjoyed one of the best meals in Sicily. Fresh sea food- excellent octopus (polipi) salad, exquisite tuna carpacio, lovely langustin, wonderful sea brim, tuna tatar and more. Even the veal one of us insisted on eating, was excellent. Service was impaccable and on the whole- a dinner to remember.
