Castellammare del Golfo: Ristorantino del mansu

piazza petrolo (angelo via pasani) , Phone: 0924.531031

Closing day: Monday

Reviewed by: Robert Rainey from USA, review #2681

When: 2007

Very good -- maybe the best -- seafood in Castellammare del Golfo

It looks like they have outdoor seating at this seaside restaurant in Castellammare Del Golfo (seasonally) but we were seated inside as it was October ... when it was "cold". It was a little stuffy with no circulating air at first but mercifully the air was eventually turned on.

Polpo Carpaccio: slightly tough and not as flavorful as the other versions we had, just ok.

Pasta with grouper, tomato and almonds: fish perfectly cooked, flavors blended very nicely - awesome!

Couscous de Pesce: Peg had this ... Maybe it's an acquired taste. I tried 2-3 executions of this and it is ok but not compared to fresh pasta! Mediterranean spices (cardomon, etc.) with the grain.

Swordfish rolled and stuffed with breadcrumbs, and a pepper tasting a little like ortega chilies: very nice. Again, perfectly cooked.

Swordfish breaded and lightly grilled: good and fresh!

Zucchini in olive oil sautee: great. Mixed green salad as it should be.

Wine: Donnafaguta chiaranda chardonnay/ansonica - beautiful white wine suitable for aging. (Later brought 6 bottes home) Dinner with mineral waters: 77
