Restaurants - Trapani and Marsala

Hi all:

I am going to Sicily and will be staying in Trapani 5 nights to explore the area. I have been before but don't recall any great meals besides Ai Lumi. Does anyone have recommendations in the area? Thanks!

Hi Kelly

Not sure if you've been to Cantina Siciliana in the Jewish Quarter (where of course there haven't been any jews since 1491, but I digress). I had a lovely meal there; Pino Maggiore is a friend of Judy Witts Francini.... if you just say "Judy" they'll know who you mean. I remember a lovely pasta with pesto trapanese. And some lemon dessert.

There's another restaurant whose name I will try to remember ---- somehow between my two visits there, only a year apart, it had turned into a kind of tourist haven with poor service and not wonderful food.

Also a great gelato place near the water ...maybe Gelateria Gino.

I haven't but I have it on my list (after looking at Judy's old posts) and am going to make a reservation. Anyone know anywhere else?

Enjoy Trapani....one of my favorite Sicilian cities and criminally undervisited. The Trattoria del Sale out in the salt pans is very good.
