Me Cumpari Turridu information
A quirky little spot that mixes tradition and modernity both in food and decor, this place is a real discovery. There's fresh pasta to be savoured – try the ricotta and marjoram ravioli in a pork sauce, or the cannellini with donkey-meat ragu. Vegetarians can opt for the Ustica lentil stew, with broad beans and fennel. Slow Food–recommended.
Meat eaters are spoilt with a variety of barbecued meat, and there is a wealth of Sicilian cheeses on offer.
