It is said that the gods gave the island of Sicily to Sicilians. Maurizio cooks food for the gods. He knows the soil, the flavours and artisan products which combine to make soul food. I will definitely be back for more. Thank you for a wonderful culinary experience.

My main expertise lies in pasta dishes, but I don't underestimate the importance of velvety soups and meat and fish entrees. My culinary creations draw inspiration from traditional Sicilian and Calabrian recipes, reinterpreted with a modern twist. I prefer using local ingredients, so-called "zero kilometer" products, to create a unique harmony that enhances the authentic colors, fragrances, and flavors of our region. I invite you to try a pasta dish seasoned with my almond and basil pesto, or an intriguing pistachio and sun-dried tomato pesto. I also offer delightful options made with red tuna and mint; pork or beef fillet enriched with vintage vinegar and white onion cream; potato meatloaf embellished with red tuna and capers. And to sweetly conclude, I propose traditional desserts made with ricotta or pistachio cream, among many other delicacies.
