Description
Rustic and simple home-style Italian cooking with a Sicilian edge is what this unpretentious family restaurant with its wood fire oven offers you. Sicilia embraces a "Grotto" philosophy of "cook what is fresh today". Guests will be forgiven for thinking that the authentic cuisine coupled with a fine bottle of wine are imported straight from a sunny, countryside village home in Sicily.
