  • agrigento

    We arranged with a tour company to take us to Agrigento via bus. $500 for a dozen of us. We met Marco, an archaeologist, there for a tour of 3 of the temples. He knew his stuff! Trip was a couple of hours, tour a couple of hours, then we had some lunch. This is the best preserved Greek temple of them all, so you should see it.

The problem is the food: before entering we asked the waiter if they had tuna and he answered yes, but what was served to us wasn't...

The service was poor and a...

San Vito lo Capo Tourist Traps

  • lechap71's Profile Photo

    by lechap71 Written Jun 28, 2009

    Avoid this restaurant.

    It describes itself as a slow-food restaurant with an ´improvised´ daily menu.

    What you get is a hugely overpriced tourist menu: the typical dishes - fish with couscous and pasta with sardines - all served briskly in order to maximize turnover.

    The waiters are mumbling thugs, probably hired to intimidate the clientele into paying the bill.

    Unique Suggestions: Ask the charming owner if he will be serving couscous with fish tonight.
