Trattoria Simpaty sits at the northern end of the Mondello beach, which already makes it special. The food is excellent, especially the seafood, as you would expect. The pasta with clams was really tasty and fresh. The catch of the day - we had a choice of 5 or 6, and chose the ricciola - was prepared very simply and was some of the best fish I'd ever had. Followed by a piece of cassata cake. All enjoyed in the sunshine looking over the beach and sea. It doesn't get much better!

Scenic location near seashore, great service, and, most importantly excellent and fresh seafood! Very popular with locals- reservations highly recommended.

You won't be disappointed at the quality of the food at Sympaty, but be prepared for a big bill. We went to Mondello for a light lunch as we were eating out in the evening. We chose Sympaty as we'd seen it featured on Rick Stein's Weekends, and the setting, overlooking the sea is very pleasant. We shared a single portion of seafood antipasti (simple but delicious). And then we shared a grilled fish from the chilled counter. I think it was a bream weighing 600g. It was also delicious and really fresh. Add a small bottle of water at 3 euros, a glass of wine at 5 euros and one cappuccino (I later noticed they'd charged us for two) and we'd paid 64 euros to share a lunch. If you go for the pasta, you could get a meal there much more cheaply, or you could get a great seafood meal elsewhere for half the price.

Not one to be missed! Seafood was fantastic and staff could not be more friendly.

Muscles starter is a must!
