We stopped in Porto Empedocle for a quick lunch and we encountered the restaurant Salmoriglio on our way... Such a luck!! The food is great and the service even better! Definitely the place to go for a lunch or dinner when you're in the neighbourhoods!

We arrived early for dinner, actually the only patrons there. The food was very delicious, however the service not too friendly. Would have given 5 stars excellent, if we had been treated better.

Our experience here with 4 italian speaking friends was very disappointing. The waiter who was the owner was very dismissive when asked what was in the specialty of the house. Service was pushy, they didn't have the items on the menu and only told us...More

Had fritto misto which was good but just the usual 2 prawns, swordfish steak & calamari. The beer (Tarì) very good. On the expensive side.
