Know before you go

Before we get into the list, we are pleased to share with you a few information related to dining at restaurants in Sicily.

1. Trattoria They are usually family-owned, casual neighborhood restaurants that serve typical local food.

2. Osteria Traditionally was a small wine bar that also served some snacks. In these years and also thanks to the different way to enjoy meals, osterias evolved to serve full, even if simple, meals. In genberal an Osteria is simpler than a trattoria. Many of them won’t even have a menu as what’s served depends on what was purchased that morning at the market.

3. Restaurant is of course a term to refer to any type of restaurant. It is the fanciest of the 3 categories of restaurant and you can can usually expect white table cloths, porcelain plates, and an elegant setting. The food will usually be more intricate, and often less local, than at an osteria or trattoria –especially if it is a gourmet–.
