Trapani Travel Guide


The kitchen of Trapani has undergone many foreign influences in particular from the Arabs. Meat and pasta are often replaced by fish and couscous. A local specialty is couscous Imperiale, steamed semolina with fish stock. The pesto alla Trapanese is a raw herb sauce of tomatoes, almonds, basil and garlic. The traditional shape of the pasta is busiate, a kind of twisted macaroni.

Calvino, Via Nunzio Nasi 77, +39 0923 21464. Excellent pizza - you'll have to come early or book ahead if you want to eat in. The locals flock here for take-aways.
Da Salvator Via Nunzio Nasi. Fairly good, cheap food.
Trattoria Ai Solito PostoVia Orlandini 30A trattoria serving traditional Trapanese cuisine. Comes highly recommended in the slow food guide to Italy. The spaghetti with sea urchins (ricci) and timballo of sardines are incredible.
