A Sicilian cuisine with a view of Vendicari
The “Il Datterino” restaurant is a point of reference in the gourmet options of the whole south-eastern area of Sicily.
It is in a charming location, with a breathtaking view over the surrounding countryside and the natural reserve of Vendicari.
It is a perfect place to spend a romantic evening in an enchanted atmosphere or for a dinner with friends when looking for quality and refinement. It is is also fine to relax at lunch with a fresh light menu, after a dip in the crystal clear waters of San Lorenzo. The highlight of this restaurant is the attention to detail.
Arriving in this place the guests are enveloped by the scent that emanates from the garden of aromatic plants that surrounds the restaurant: rosemary, thyme, sage are just some of the Mediterranean aromas that will be found in the dishes, along with the scent of the sea nearby.
“Il Datterino” restaurant offers a Sicilian cuisine made of sincerity and simplicity, which enhances the local quality ingredients in every season. The dishes are prepared with an excellent technique and the right touch of innovation and creativity.
Chef Silvio Zappulla tells us – “There is no need to amaze, every ingredient already has what it takes to stimulate the palate with its unique taste, we only have the task of cuddling it and cooking it with the correct respect”. His recipes, however, are never predictable and they enchant for the perfect balance between taste and creativity. A way of cooking that have tradition as a starting point for a contemporary cuisine.
We recommend seafood dishes, such as crudité or mixed grilled based on fish that is always fresh and of excellent quality. Guest reviews suggest also the excellent Pasta alla Norma.
