Italo's Home Restaurant

Cooking is culture, passion, love.

We are convinced, in fact, that those who cook with passion flavour their dishes also with love. We consider it the main ingredient used to prepare our dishes. Each dish contains the story of women and men who have handed down recipes, some faithful to the origin but, often, adding an ingredient or variation. Thus, the lives of entire generations eventually reach our tables.

All our products and ingredients are selected and strictly local, we love to enhance our territory in every aspect.

Cooking is culture, passion, love. We are crossing a period characterized by events that no one would have dared to imagine just a few years ago: a pandemic, a war in Europe whose ghosts were believed to have disappeared forever with the fall of the Berlin Wall and a war of massacres in the Near East caused by the inability of two peoples to coexist.

What can the art of cooking do in this context? It can be a messenger of love and peace.

Yes, of course, it may seem a somewhat exaggerated statement and, why not, naive.

But for us it is not like that.

We are convinced, in fact, that those who cook with passion flavour their dishes also with love. We consider it the main ingredient used to prepare our dishes. We learned this teaching as children by observing the gestures of grandmothers and mothers who prepared the same dishes that we now offer to our guests.

What about peace? Yes, peace. Do you find warriors willing to fight each other when they are seated around a table tasting the cuisine prepared with passion ? We are sure that it is an impossible search.

Olio Olive Alive

We are lucky because we live in a land that produces excellent products and with them it is easy to cook good dishes that speak of love and preach peace. By the way, sure, we forgot our excellent oil!

Love as an ingredient

We are convinced, in fact, that those who cook with passion flavour their dishes also with love. We consider it the main ingredient used to prepare our dishes.

We are convinced that a good seafood “risotto”, fresh “pasta” topped with datterino tomatoes and fresh basil, baked “pasta” with fish sauce, Syracusan-style mussels, “caponata”, “parmigiane”, “arancini” with gorgonzola, snapper in a crust of salt, sea bream baked in foil, swordfish rolls, tuna with peppers or onion from Giarratana, a pie of sardines “alla beccafico”, goat cheeses accompanied with citrus or red onion jams, Sicilian cannoli, Trapani wines and Etna and much more are good arguments to make all disagreements vanish and make people understand how stupid all wars are.

"Maybe we are a little presumptuous but when we cook we think about the happiness of others."

Be happy
