This lovely restaurant was recommended by our hotel manager. It's a family-run concern, slightly off the beaten track (next to the theatre) in its own courtyard. Our welcome was warm and friendly. The owner showed us a wonderful plate of very fresh fish so we could choose our own meal, and by the time we left, the restaurant was full... More

Very nice simple restaurant near the theater, offers local simple cuisine with a modern taste but remained simple and without too much ambition. The owner very friendly and helpful. Hidden in a little court is worth discovering.

I have been to Ruga Reali on several occasions and have not been disappointed with either the standard of the food or the wonderful hospitality. Excellent vegetarian options are on offer (not a lot but enough and they are happy to discuss alternatives) and on my last visit I had a beautiful genuine in house Cassata Siciliana, quite different to...

Ruga Reali is run by competent professionals. Like most Sicilians, they are helpful and anxious to please the visitor. The chef produces a delicious cuisine which is at the same time typical and refined. The facility is located in the heart of old Agrigento, probably a bit difficult to find on the first visit, but it is worth seeing as... More

This is a lovely little restaurant fair prices and an unusual outdoor eating area in a courtyard out the back, surrounded by the bustle of everyday Sicilian life. The staff are friendly and speak good English. Food was excellent with all the usual typical menu items.

The place was recommended to us by our hotel front desk as a good seafood place. And good it was. I rarely go to such extent as claiming to have the best of something but here I can honestly say that that was the best dinner I had in Sicily. To say the least, calamari which is almost always overcooked... More
