With a setting in two plain rooms on the edge of the now sadly diminished Vucciria market, this century-old institution serves old Sicilian specialties that you might not encounter outside of home kitchens. Fritelle di fava (fava beans) are fried with vegetables and cheese; carni bollite is a tantalizing assortment of tender, herb-flavored boiled meats; and the macco di fave (meatballs and tripe) is a carnivore’s delight. The namesake brodo (broth) is served several ways, best as tortellini in brodo, with housemade pasta. To sample Sicilian home cooking at its best, order one of the good-value fixed-price menus.
