We got this reccommendation from Sicilian friends, but unfortunately when around 50 people from a coach trip entered the restaurant, I should have realised what sort of food we would get. And so it was. Very average from starter to main and wine. Even olive...More

Erice is full of enticing, beautiful, boutique type eateries and I am sure that many will be excellent. But, having walked all around the picturesque cobbled streets and alleys, this has the best setting. It is off the track, but central if that makes sense...More

Great setting, slightly off the beaten track in Erice. Friendly staff and excellent food. Good starters and excellent spaghetti carbonara. I know Italians don't eat salad with pasta but I do and it was a great salad. Would highly recommend. Shame it wasn't warm enough...More

Well priced, friendly restaurant serving a wide array of local dishes. Gets busy with locals and tourists alike. Not so easy to find as slightly off the beaten track but worth the search

The pasta was really good, we ordered tagliatelli. But they forgot our food and it came 50 minutes after we ordered. The calamari were small for a full portion.

The service was very good, very friendly and not pushy at all. The local Trapanese pasta was perfect to me. Recommended.

A good looking venue but Food very ordinary, and service atrocious. Wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a quiet romantic evening.

I have no more pleasure than a wonderful plate of pasta so when in Italy, I look hard for good authentic well made pasta. Here in Erice we are staying several nights in the off season and so I assumed many places are closed. We...More

At lunch Pentolaccia is on the itinerary of tour groups coming to Erice on day trips from cruises putting into the port of Palermo. Not clear what they get to eat; but the general menu contains a number of very good dishes, e.g., the risotto...More

The grouper ravioli and the swordfish fagotini were to die for - highly recommended. The cassatelle dessert was also sublime. Ask the waiter for a local wine recommendation as the bottle he chose for us was excellent and only 10 euros. Go before 7.30 to...More
