What to taste in Trapani
We advise you to:
Eat a pizza at Calvino pizzeria or, if you are numerous and have children, at La Quercia.
Eat fish at Taverna Paradiso.
If you want to eat simple, rustic food, go to Bettolaccia.
Try the roll with panelle (a street food made of fried chickpea flour) at za Paolina, in XXX January street. Ask to season it with salt, pepper and lemon. You will remember the taste. It can be a great morning or afternoon break, for those who love savory food. A sandwich with panelle is good at all times of the day.
Taste the cannoli in Dattilo, a small town just outside Trapani. Slowly! A cannolo can be easily divided into two halves because of its abundant size. Take a ride towards Ummari, afterwards. The Sicilian countryside to which one can lose oneself! Nothing majestic, but simply poetic and suggestive.
