Our hotel recommended Papù and we had a decent meal. We had the polpette di tonno to start, and then I had the fritto misto and my partner had the busiate di sarde. The shrimp in the fritto misto were very good but the calamari were cool and tough. The busiate were a different story. This was one of the day’s specials and it was excellent, one of the top two dishes we had on Favignana. The busiate, a curly pasta, were served with a sauce made from mashed sardines and other flavorful ingredients.

The service at Papù is prompt and well informed.

This is a great place that is unique on the island of Favignana. While there are no shortage of places touting the freshest tuna on the island, this place provides tasty steaks as well. They serve beef, which is on display in a cooler on the dining room floor, on a hot metal griddle which allows patrons to have their beef exactly to their taste. The fish and pastas are equally excellent and the salumi and burrata plate is a winning appetizer. Desserts and wine list also excel.

This is an excellent restaurant with warm service and good food. They do a little twist on local cuisine for brining new flavors and tastes. Several kinds of pasta are stunning.
But of course, reservation is required!

Staff is friendly, there is a bit to wait but overall the service was good.

Food was okay, I was expecting something more tasteful when I ordered the tuna alla favignanese.
The pasta was overcooked but the seasing was okay.

I believe the restaurant has a great potential but the chef should put more attention when preparing the dishes.

The price would have been okay if the dishes had met the expectations.

I was celebrating b-day in this place, they congratulated me with a small cake and b-day song! Very friendly staff, nice typical-italian ambient, everybody smiling, talking loudly, great atmosphere.. But also the food was amazing! Besides was delicious it was nicely decorated and of real high quality. Very recommended place to have great dinner. Many thanks to Papu :)
