Appetizers

We suggest you cruditè with white Sicilian wine Giasira, cuttlefish engraved with crispy fennel, sweet peppers and Nebrodi's black sausage, one of Triscia's favorite dishes.
Among the varied options of appetizers, we present you cruditè with Norway lobster,red king prawn of Mazara del Vallo, marinated anchovies, white shrimp, sea bass carpaccio. Fish dishes are always fresh because the fish is purchased at the market early in the morning, and are proposed with fruit that gives a velvety note. The menu varies according to fresh catches of the day and the dishes are brought to the table in a fanciful way.
 
 
 

First course

You can enjoy lots of first courses: Linguini with clams seasoned with garlic, lemon and chilli peppers , tuna bottarga and "muddica atturriata", prepared with oregano, grated bread, wild fennel, tomato and anchovies. An alternative could be represented by the potato gnocchi, prepared by the chef, with fish soup in which the classic crouton is replaced with dumpling.
 
 
 
 

Second course

Do not miss the seared tuna on white eggplant cream, onion of Giarratana, capers and salt-spinach,parboiled at the moment. Another second dish that is born from the creativity of the chef is the fish at Bronte's pistachio, salmoriglio sauce and fennel with cinnamon.
 
 

Dessert

We offer you a typical dessert of Scicli, "The Turco's Head", which has a particular history! Its name derives, in fact, from the battle fought in the plain that gives to the sea of Donnalucata, township Sciclitana. On that occasion, on a March night of 1091, the Saracen army deployed his troops against the Normans in a war to the death. At this point, the Madonna gone down in the field and thanks to a sharp sword in her right hand cut the heads of numerous Saracen enemies in defense of faithful Christians. From this legend these delicious desserts are born to honor the trophies, represented by the heads of the Turks, defeated in battle. In addition, you can taste the cooked cream with peach mousse or tabacchiera (typical Sicilian crushed peach). Even among the desserts, the seasonal fruit is indispensable, served in small pieces with crmbs of shortcrust pastry.
