This has been a landmark restaurant in Cefalù since 1977 and its still considered by many to be the best restaurant in town. It's near the Duomo, on an impossibly narrow cobblestone street about a block downhill from the center of town. The Sicilian cuisine here has a number of imaginative Asian and other international touches -- a surprise in this part of the world. I recommend the tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms and the mouthwatering spiedini di pesce spada (marinated swordfish roasted with sweet peppers and served in a lemony mustard sauce). As a bow to Tex-Mex cuisine, chili con carne appears on the menu, but serious foodies prefer the gratin of octopus. Other recommended main dishes include turkey filet with cherry sauce, swordfish kabob with a mustard lemon sauce, and spaghetti with prawns and swordfish. The house dessert, justifiably celebrated locally, is a banana doused with orange liqueur, baked, and then topped with whipped cream.
