Refined selection of local wines


This Taste Experience is a homage to the Palermitan culinary tradition.

To begin, we have a refined and delicate tuna tartare, served with a generous squeeze of Sicilian lemon, one of the island’s most iconic exports. 

For the first course, Alessandro opts for a typical Sicilian speciality, ‘busiate’ pasta, served with cherry tomatoes, mint and a local delicacy, swordfish roe. The flavour combination is light and fresh, perfect for a summer’s day.

Next, for the second course, we have a classic fish dish, grilled amberjack served with fresh seasonal vegetables. 

To round off, Alessandro serves an exceptional ‘pan di spagna’ sponge cake, served with a refreshing lemon granita topped with chantilly cream. The perfect finish!

Alessandro was born and raised in Palermo, but spent several years living in London, where he developed a passion for cooking. Living overseas made Alessandro’s love of his hometown all the more powerful, and his Sicilian roots have always been a strong part of his identity. He loves meeting new people form all over the world so he can share the rich traditions of Sicily with them. 

Alessandro welcomes us into the heart of Palermo, a beautiful city that leaves a mark on anyone lucky enough to visit. His flat is located in an oasis of calm, providing a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but within easy reach of all the main attractions. There is plenty of outdoor space here, making it perfect for children and nature-lovers. Alessandro’s dinner table is a warm and welcoming place, offering you a first-hand experience of the famous Sicilian hospitality.
