Our daily menu will offer a wide selection of traditional Sicilian dishes, handmade on the premises using high quality local produce combined with quality Sicilian ingredients (including almonds, pistachios and sun-dried tomatoes).


Sicilian cuisine is predominantly similar to Italian cuisine however there are very strong historical influences from the Spanish, Greek, North Africans and Arabs. The use of apricots, sugar, citrus, sweet melons, rice, saffron, raisins, nutmeg, clove, pepper, pine nuts, cinnamon are influences from the Arab domination of Sicily in the 10th and 11th centuries. Later, the Spanish introduced numerous items from the New World, including cocoa, peppers and tomatoes. On the east coast, initially settled by Greek colonists, fish, olives, broad beans, pistachios and fresh vegetables are preferred instead. In Trapani in the extreme western corner of the island, North African influences are clear in the use of couscous. All of the island's cuisine encourages the use of fresh vegetables such as aubergines, peppers, tomatoes, beans, courgettes, fennel and seafood such as sea urchins, clams, prawns, tuna, sardines, octopus, cuttlefish, and swordfish.

Why not have a glass of wine to accompany your meal or cake? We have a choice of Sicilian wines including reds, whites and of course Marsala. The soil and the climate in Sicily are ideal for growing grapes, mainly due to Mount Etna, and a wine-making tradition on the island has operated since the Greeks set up their first colonies on the island. Today, all provinces of the island produce wine. Other typical Sicilian drinks include limoncello, a lemon liqueur, and Amaro Siciliano, a herbal drink, which is often consumed after meals as a digestive.
