Very friendly service, a bit slow and then everything came at the same time. Food was nice, especially the antipasto misto. Pasta was average and tuna was good.

We booked a table in this packed restaurant. However, food was pricey for the small quantity we received. Maybe this was due to it being fish dishes. Most restaurants are overpriced for the quality in Favignana town.

Really a "do not miss" restaurant. Organize yourself and make a reservation on time and simply.... enjoy. Whatever you taste is excellent and we'll armonize. You can exprience an overwhelming sensation of local and traditional flavours served with courtesy. I may recommend "tartare di tonno" if available, tonno with onions (it is an appetizer but I do not remeber the... More

Very nice dishes, fresh fish and seafood, friendly service. We were a bigger group and even with this size the staff always found a way to get us seated and we got a great service. One day they prepared a breakfast which they don't have on the menu, simply based on our request. Highly recommended place to eat in Favignana!

Very good food in a family run restaurant, delicious, fresh sea food. The only issue was that we felt rushed to order and one cannot enjoy a relaxed experience.

Amazing food and good value in Favignana. Really tasty swordfish and sardine pasta. The atmosphere was not great with loud football on the TV in the background but it's worth it for the food which is simply delicious!

Considered that in Favignana most of the restaurants are overpriced, la Bettola seems a good compromise. The food is good, we recommend to try the typical pasta from this region 'busiate'. The sevice is efficient and nice.

We ate at the Bettola three nights. All three were very good.. Superb tuna tartare and Busiate with sardines... Also had fresh raw red shrimp which were a delicacy... Good family style service.. Compliments

Apparently it did. This nest little trattoria has had a complete makeover and re-emerged as a high volume, mediocre, fast food joint. First the layout: gone are the cozy interior tables and they have been replaced by (in my opinion) 3 dining areas: - A pleasant garden for clients who have made a reservation. - A patio off the main...

We were 9 people without reservation and they accommodated us promptly. Service is friendly and competent, fish is fresh and they know how to cook it, wine was good as well. They value local cuisine and old traditions in cooking. Plus they have vegan options for salads, side dishes, desserts and breakfast. The global impression is that they care for... More
