Is always that bit of salt more or less that makes the difference

FISH RESTAURANT AND
MEAT RESTAURANT IN CATANIA

THE FIRE, UNEQUIVOCAL SYMBOL OF OUR LAND

Etna, Nebrodi and Iblei's moutains: there are the places where we look for and find the ingredients that we love to bring to our guest's table.

Pistachos, dried tomatoes, toasted almonds, Brolo's sausages, the black swine meat from Nebrodi, the citrus: these and other row materials that evocate a real sicilian way of eating, meets in unexpected dishes born from our cook's studies and imagination. So we say thank you to them: Elvio, Kamal, Rochan and Sylveter.

Our is a menu that changes, according to the season and our guests tastes, to propose everytime something different and surprising. We go over the idea of typical restaurant: if the ingredients have a name and a well known origin, often synonym of quality, will be their commingling to give you the pleasure of a rediscovery, for the eyes as much as fro the palate.
