    Palermo Restaurants

    If you like sweets you will be happy in Palermo. At every corner there is a bakery and inside every bakery there is a treasure of cannoli, pasta di mandorle, cassata and more. The best bakery will build your cannolo right there, in front of your eyes, they do not want the fried pastry dough shell to get soggy, so they keep it aside and add the...

  • Pizzottando

    Palermo Restaurants

    This small pizza house was not far from our hotel... We had some walk in the direction of city center and it was just across the church of San Francesco Saverino. The waiter was a tipical Sicilian guy and helped us to choose a tipical Sicilian wine and pizza... I had pizza Siciliana and Lo had a pizza that named La faccia della vecchia (Old...

    CIN-CIN RESTAURANT Via Manin, off Via Liberta (in the area between the Politeama Theatre and the English Garden (Giardino Inglese). This restaurant is one of Palermo's culinary treasures.

  • Gogliardo

    Palermo Restaurants

    Here we are... We had our second nite dinner in the area of seaport. There are several elegant restaurants around. We chose this one and as many people suggested we had sword fish.. Lo had grilled and I had "Involtini di pesce spada"... We had a white Sicilian wine Grecanico and talked on our day in Sicily and next day's programme and other...

  • La Posada

    Palermo Restaurants

    We dined here late one night after our return from Ustica. There seemed to be a high percentage of locals which is obviously a good sign although, from the outside at least, this looked to be a fairly bog-standard pizzeria. Wrong. It was an excellent pizzeria with good service, excellent pasta and pizza dishes, and was reasonably priced with a...

  • Sea food by the sea

    The restaurant is located on the seafront promenade. It offers fresh fish, crabs and shellfish. Brodeto soup.

  • Sea food

    We were lucky (just two places) to find a place. Dinner and wine excellent. Others in my memories and a few pictures: lady sitting in a chair in the doorway, watching TV and dark view records staff, boss refuses to guests as it has reserved for friends, the waiter should not charge money than the boss who wears his pockets, asking money in return....

  • Unique Decor and Almond Wine

    Bar Turrisi is an interesting and unusual bar in the heart of Castelmola. This family run place has a long tradition which passed from generation to generation. It is a three-storey house with a little terrace on each floor, plus one on the top, offering a great view of Piazza Duomo and the waters of Taormina below.What makes Bar Turrisi so special...

  • Fresh Seafood Sicilian Style

    Paradiso is the prettiest of the two restaurants of Levanzo. Centrally located close to the pier, the facade of the house is partly made of stone and the rest is white, nicely decorated with marine motifs. Turquoise doors, exactly the colour of the sea, and scarlet bougainvillea climbing upwards the wall, gives a perfect picture of the...

  • Pasta Pasta and more Pasta

    I primiThe Primi is normally (pasta) or (risotto), depending on the region could vary. The Portions are small after all there is more to come "Secondi"!"Secondi" only meat or fish. Potatoes, Vegetables and Salad can be found under "Contorni" I dolciMmm the best part "Dolci": Desert or icecream. Try a bit of everything delicious.Il caffèA must after...

  • Antipasto perfection

    Another day, another delicious lunch, this time in Zafferana Etnea, an attractive small town we'd passed through on our way up Mt Etna. Liking the look of it, we marked it as somewhere to stop for lunch on our way down to the coast but the town seemed to be closed for business, all apart from a pink-painted place with plastic chairs and tables on...

  • Simple Dinner under the Stars :)

    Most of the times we arrived in the camping early in the evening. After the whole day of driving and sightseeing, it was nice to settle and have some rest. The first thing we had to do was finding a suitable place to put the tent and then came the more pleasant part: the dinner. Sicily offers plenty of good quality local specialities, and fresh...

  • Coucous and cassata

    Dinner at the Tavernetta Ai Lumi is a not-to-be missed treat for anyone visting Trapani, not merely guests of the the B&B of the same name next door, and not just because guests are given a 15% discount on their restaurant bill! Owner, Riccardo and his team have turned the old stables of the 16th century palazzo into a warm and atmospheric haven of...

  • Chilly treats

    It was the Arabs who first developed a taste for frozen desserts in Sicily. Combining their traditional fruit syrups (sarbat) with ice from Mt Etna they made granita - that delicious and cooling slush of fruit syrup - so refreshing on a hot summer day. When some clever cook decided to experiment with the addition of milk, gelato was born. Adding...

  • Pitstop lunches

    Long, indulgent lunches are great, but not for every day, even when you're on holiday. With so many wonderful places to see (some of them quite out of the way) not to mention markets full of the most fabulous fresh produce, there are days when a simple meal is all you want, whether it's a sandwich and a cold drink at a small cafe, a roadside picnic...

  • Rabbit stew and caponata

    It was the promise of a house speciality of rabbit stew that made up our minds for us when deciding where to eat lunch the day we visited the Villa Romana de Casale near Piazza Armerina. La Ruota is "reknowned throughout central Sicily for its hearty rural fare" according to one guide book, so, even though we tend to be wary of restaurants that are...

  • Cheap food

    Italy is pizza and pasta land. We didnt go any restoran because they where to expensive to us. We usually went to some bakery, took a pizza or big sandwitch. It cost about 2-4 euros.Bottle of water 1,5L cost from market 0,50-0, 80 Eurs. Froms small streetshops it cost 1 Euro.

  • So many choices

    We were walking around Ortigia Sunday morning after Mass, and just happened upon a little Osteria. The were just opening up for Lunch, and we were fortuanate to get a table. We had the best Antipasti of our trip. I got to try the Pasta with Sepia (Cuttlefish Ink). the pasta was served with ground Pistacios which became a new favorite. After...

  • Best Breakfast in Sicily

    At the Hotel Villa Diodoro in Taormina Sicily, we ate the best breakfast in the best of all settingsThe room has gigantic windows all around, and we could see the Ionian Sea and parts of Mount Etna!And the best thing about it all, it was free with the remarkable dining room. My favorites at this breakfast was the large amounts of fresh fruits,...

  • Now for something completely different

    Here is a direct take from one of my E-mails:Eating: - While waiting in line for some takeaway food of unknown origin, served by a half blind lady, I was touched from behind by a beggar (yet another one) who I somewhat scornfully rejected.When my turn arrived I cried "uno" and pointed to what the previous customer had bought. It must have been the...

  • Marettimo

    Definitely the best restaurant in Marettimo! Food is good and service is very nice and friendly. Don't expect to find incredible restaurants in Marettimo, but this is really the most interesting one. I've to say they're also quite expensive, but that's quite normal cause everything there is brought by boat. Try the busiate, which is a sort of hand...

  • Palermo

    If you go to Palermo you simply have to stop there. The Antica Focacceria is a nice bistrot- restaurant, located just in front of the church of san Francesco. This restaurant was created in 1834 and still runs with the fifth generation of the same family!The atmosphere is very warm. The only think I warmly suggest is to reserve, especially in...

  • Catania

    I was surprised to find such a place! It's a very typical restaurant, were you can eat for less than 10 €. Their specialties is horse meat (!) that they roast just in front of the restaurant. Locals eat the large and thin steak in a sandwich.In Catania you will also find butchers cooking meat for you in front of their shop!

  • Marzamemi

    Imagine to reach the perfect place you've always had in your mind. La Cialoma is a lovely restaurant in Marzamemi, in the Southern part of Sicily.You can there taste tipycal dishes prepared by Lina the daughter of the local "raìs" (raìs is an arabic term that means the head fisherman of the mattanza, which is how the tuna fishing is called in...

  • Unforgettable!

    The fish restaurant is very nice decorated, classic style. There is no menu as the cook prepares only fresh fish - so the menu depends of the fishing! We tried Carpaccio of polipo (calamares), pasta di Scampi, pesce spada,... and a delicious 'dolce'! Not to forget the Expresso !

  • Go typical Sicilian!

    Ma and pa are active in the kitchen, son and daughter are serving the hungry people : a real family business.Very nice people, the restaurant is cosy and the food is of good quality.

  • Something I'll remember

    In my Siracusa page you can read what is so special about this place. A hole in the wall style restaurant with some meat dishes and a lot of vegetarian pasta with local sauces, prepared by the most wonderful lady. Pasta with pumpkin- and pistacchio sauce!

  • Lipari: trattoria d'oro

    Someone recommended it to my partner and I when we travelled to the Aeolian islands: we found it so delicious that we kept going back again and again. it's supposed to be one of the island's best seafood restaurant. I can certainly recommend it anything with sword fish, grilled octopus, risotto with seafood. Have some cantuccini and malvasia after...

  • Food!

    This was not acually my favorite restaurant, but all the girls seemed to like it, I don´t know why?... Anyway, try out the `Fallic` Bar, it´s on the very top of Taormina. Pretty much any Sicilian restaurant is really good, and generally cheap.
