Specialties of the kitchen feature fresh handmade pasta combined with a variety of vegetables, herbs and cheese, with each dish offering an original and tasty experience unique to Villa A Casitta. Pippo is the master of his kitchen, ensuring that every lovingly made dish sings of the Sicilian sun. Using only local and seasonal products keeps the food genuine and affordable as well as delicious.
Alongside the vegetarian pasta, the menu features freshly grilled local Sicilian meat dishes, such as minced lamb patties cooked and served on lemon leaves. Diners can also feast on the freshest of fish, seasoned and marinated to get the best out of the catch of the day, and served with the pick of the local market's seasonal and biological ingredients.
All dishes, whether vegetarian, fish or meat, are very popular because of the freshness of the organic ingredients which are deftly cooked to highlight their natural qualities, rather than masking them with over-complicated and fussy technique.
Even the after-dinner digestives follow the same ethos of preferring only natural products processed by strictly traditional methods, and are flavored with the scents of local lemons, oranges, bay and fennel. Those with a sweet tooth shouldn't miss out on the home-made cakes, baked to traditional Sicilian recipes using fresh ingredients and centuries of expertise.
