Calvino: The best pizza of your life
Calvino is the best pizzeria of Trapani, and for me of the world, it has a nealry century old tradition, they use genuine fresh ingredients, and cutted tomatoes in pieces not sauce.
The cosy pizzeria was originally a whorehouse, now converted in pizeria, and i am sure the business is even better now!
Ask anyone local and they will tell you where it is, althoigh it is in the city center, you might have to call and reserve a table because it is even full by locals often, we just love it.
There is another calvino in the main road of trapani but there you can't sit can only take away your pizza and the pizza is not as great as the other pizzeria one(if you wanna be fussy! )
By the way in Trapani there are also great 'gelaterie' or icecream shops, and bakeries and sweets shops..mmmm yum yum i amgettign hungry now!! ;D
PS: a pizza is like only 4€ for a small one, but dont let yourself get tricked by the size , it usually fills anyone, i go always for a medium though!!

Cantina Siciliana: If your in Trapani you eat here.
I have a problem here, you know when you try something and it’s so good that when you go back you can’t bring yourself to eat anything but that same thing again. Well all I need to say is Cous Cous con pesce. 1999, 2001 and my last trip in 2003 and guess what I know I will order next time. Sad isn’t it.
SERRISSO 47: wonderful gastronomic experience
It's amazing how many of Trapani's best restaurants are disguised by unpretentious facades on the historical district’s side streets. This one, with its arched ceilings of stone, is hidden down a flight of steps behind the harbor (Siremar point).
The cuisine based on traditional Sicilian recipes is very refined, creative, even aristocratic. Chef Gaetano Basirico has his own original approach to the Sicilian way of cooking and the way each dish is served is really a meeting of the ways between the best folk traditions and the best aristocratic ones. Here a meal can actually be memorable!
The ” swordfish meatballs in stuffing with bread and zucchini coulis” could be considered a signature dish, while the “artichokes and grouper fresh pasta with artichokes fried with herbs and grouper, diced tomatoes in coriander oil” is a unique house specialty. In season, the “Cous Cous Fish and fish fillets - single dish with durum wheat bran, steamed and soaked with fish broth” is not to be missed. Or try the “Maccu * of beans and Pasqualora” (fresh pasta with pureed dried beans
and pasqualora sausage).
*Pasqualora => The production of the pasqualora sausage goes back in tradition time, and it happened during the Easter time. That is the reason of the name "pasqualora" sausage. The consumption of pig meat usually fits with the winter time, however as at the end of the winter and before of the start of the hot season the pig meats took a particular consistency, in the traditional livestock-breeding, the not slaughtered heads at that time, were destined to the slaughtering with the aim of this sausage production.
You can end with the tasty “Cassata Kabir” (a variation of the Sicilian Cassata with sponge-cake with Kabir Muscat wine, ricotta, raisins and pistachio ice Yummy!)
Dinner averages about €40.00 per person (with a good wine). The large wine list includes many fine regional Sicilian wines. Open for lunch and in the evenings, all year. Monday always closed. Reservations are recommended. Major credit cards are accepted.
Keep in mind that the Sicilian lunches begin around one o'clock and last until three or four. Dinners begin around eight and last forever lol
Favorite Dish: “Fillets of fish with salted picked lemon with salted pickled lemon vellutata*”(*Vellutata = light colored cream sauce) is my favorite dish. The fish is cooked in a way that melts in your mouth yet you can taste the salty taste of the sea water. Simply amazing!!!

La bettolaccia: Typical food
It's a small restaurant in a hidden street that leads from the seaside (the Harbour side) to Corso Vittorio Emanuele, we found it by chance because it was close to the B&B where we stayed and we decided to enter. We had a wonderful fish Cous Cous and some pasta with fish.
For 2 fist courses, wine, desserts and coffee we payed 45 euros.
Favorite Dish: The fish cous cous was really wonderful
Pizzeria Mediterranea - Mario Aleci: Best Pizza EVER
Originally we were supposed to go to some other pizza place that supposedly served the best pizza, but it was closed so we randomly found this place. The next day we went to the first pizza place, and decided that the place we found had ultimately the BEST pizza ever.. .
plastic tablecloths, bright lighting, looks like about 30 guys working in the kitchen. . .
If you want to compare them yourself, the other place is Pizzeria Siciliana
Favorite Dish: i think the diavolo was good, don't remember. but expect to get your sicilian pizzas sliced in 1 inch squares. so fun to eat with a fork!
Gusto: Good but expensive dinner
The food was good and the waiters were funny and kind, but after all I wouldn't suggest this place for a dinner becuase in my opinion it's quite expensive. The most expensive dish costed 20 euro and actually I think it's really too much.
We hadn't a small dinner, actually, with two courses each one and wine but we spent 40 euros per person!
Favorite Dish: Pasta con le sarde
Ai Lumi: Fish and music
This is the restaurant of the B&B where we stayed, where we had a 15% discount being guest of the B&B.
You're sitting at a table in the beautiful Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and very often you have live music.
The food is very good, especially the fish, spending about 20 euro for each course
Cantina Siciliana: Not so good
It was a not-so-unforgettable experience in Trapani... Entry plate was very tiny, first course not so bad. After all, the bill was a little bit expensive. In Trapani there are some other restaurants offering a much better price to quality ratio.
by Bettina (Basile Alberta): Sicilian food - eat where locals do!
First I liked the prices in the menu - then I liked the food and I was dining there almost every night during my stay in Trapani!
Favorite Dish: Caponata alla Siciliana

Antica Hosteria: Good food close to the harbour and the city centre
This restaurant has a good location for tourists, because it's very close to the harbour and few hundred meters away from the city centre.
Though it's not the most elegant restaurant we've ever visited, we've always had good food experiences.
They serve local food and fresh fish. If you come to Trapani in June, don't miss the tuna steak, a real delicacy.
Favorite Dish: Tuna steak
Ristorante dell'Albergo Paradiso: Simple but delicious seafood
Its a simple but nice restaurants with friendly and helpful servers. Its only a few minute's walk facing the hill side of Levanzo village (turn left form the port)
Favorite Dish: Its simple (salt only) fish restaurant. People are friendly and interesting-they are relaxed and spending time with friends when possible.
