This restaurant is a proof that sometimes in order to have the best food you have to move away from the city! We drove from Castellammare (where we were a bit dissapointed in restaurant scene) and had the perfect last dinner on the island. The waitress couldn't have been more kind, and the food was amazing, just what we expected from Sicily. Flan di zuchinni as a starter and passion fruit/chocolate dessert were divine, such nicely balanced flavors. Every detail was well taken care of, including presentation. Hopefully we'll be back!

Don't doubt for a second to go this place. The captain and his family will make a very good experience of it!

Eating out in Sicily is a wonderful experience, but the dinner we had at Il Frutto della Passione was extraordinary! Each dish was a little masterpiece! Highly recommended!
So even if it is a bit out of the way, it is deffinetely worth the drive!

In the middle of somewhere Il Fruto is a small restaurant where you'll be served accordingly. The dishes are good although the extras they serve on the plate don't match. A bit dry patato/cheese timbal and fish ?? The starters are to much but taste good, but again dry.... Howcome

We found this restaurant through the trip advisor app whilst travelling from Marsala to Scopello. We were greeted warmly although we arrived close to closing time for their lunch sitting. We were spoilt by the host (the chef's father) and had one of the best meals we'd had in five weeks in Italy. The risotto with mushrooms and pumpkin purée was simply incredible as was the parfait dessert that was recommended. A fabulous experience that we will treasure for a lifetime.
