One of the few reasons to venture into modern Agrigento is a chance to enjoy a hearty meal at this old-fashioned favorite, a city institution since 1919. True to its name, the kitchen makes it a point to act as Sicilian ambassadors and introduce diners to the island’s finest cuisine, with delicious preparations of fresh fish, along with linguine al’Ambasciata (prepared with meat sauce, bacon, calamari, and zucchini). Meals are served in a small dining room crammed to the ceiling with marionettes and other colorful artifacts; there’s also a breezy terrace overlooking the surrounding rooftops.
