Italian Restaurant
$$$
“Run by a real (and we mean real) Sicilian! There is no menu and he conjures 7 courses each day for whcih you pay a fixed price. Drink from different wines and the waitress will casually estimate how much you drank at the end of the evening (usually less than what you actually drank). Recommended to book in advance.”
