We were on our way to Agrigento when decided to stop in Porto Empedocle for a dinner. Tripadvisor showed this trattoria among the best in the town and we decided to pay a visit. The place is right at the centre, so no need to look for it. The staff is very friendly. They have a great option of dinner... More

Family run trattoria in the centre of Porto Empedocle. Notice that it re-opened recently, so old reviews might not be up to date. Nothing posh here. The place is clean but rustic. The service is kind and efficient but not professional (the young lady who run to call for her father as soon as we asked for the bill was... More

Food was below average and for the price there any many better options in the area. My husband order a mixed grill fish and I ordered grilled calamari. Very, very small portions that my husband and I left starving and we went to get a sandwich after. The only plus was it had a nice and cold air conditioner.

Kind and helpful service. Outstanding regional food, fresh seafood and fishes. We ordered antipasti 'crudo' and 'regional', fish couscous and tuna and all we can say is that we enjoyed a good dinner. It was December, perhaps it helps.

Food and wine throughout Sicily are great, but Trattoria Torre Carlo V is exceptional. The decor is simple but the food is extraordinary -- fresh ingredients, expertly prepared, and presented by warm and gracious hosts. If you are visiting Agrigento or the surrounding area, do yourself a favor and have dinner here. Piazza Vittorio Veneto and the adjacent street in... More
