The Trattoria del Corso is situated Trapani in Corso Italia 51, immersed in the historic centre.
The trattoria is small and friendly and has been family run for many years.
The staff and owners greet guests with warmth and friendliness and accompany them in the selection of typical culinary delights from Trapani.
The special flavours and combinations of quality first class ingredients and foods delight the palate and appeal to your sense of smell.
The kitchen is visible and this allows customers to watch the food being prepared.
