This spot is run by a local Sicilian couple and has the feel of a high-end trattoria with the charm of a small family-run business, and the attention to detail usually reserved for generations spent in the service industry. Open since 2015, they only use seafood that comes fresh off the boat in Terrasini near the Gulf of Castellammare, and the wine list, curated by the owners’ son, includes a solid selection of natural and traditional Sicilian bottles.
The squid ink pasta with cuttlefish and bottarga is the dish you need to order, but proceed with caution: Sicilian squid ink pasta has an intense black sauce that’ll stain everything, including your mouth. Make sure to book a table in advance, especially on the weekends.
