Gourmet dining in Sicily


One of Sicily's many great attractions is its food culture. The complexity and range of the island's culinary traditions, the flavour-packed goodness of its ingredients, and the pride and love with which Sicilian producers, cooks, chefs, bakers and pizzaioli go about their work, make Sicily one of Italy's most prestigious gastronomic destinations. Whether you're dining in a humble, family-run trattoria, snacking on rosticceria, filling up with street food, indulging in a full-on seafood feast, or enjoying a pizza in a busy locals' favourite, you'll rarely, if ever, have a meal that is not memorable.

Sicily also caters for lovers of gourmet dining, and the 2018 edition of the Michelin Guide includes 14 Sicilian restaurants from all across the island (and minor islands):
