Restaurant La Pigna

Prestige & Tradition

The main characteristic of the restaurant “La Pigna”, in a warm and refined atmosphere, is the gastronomical tradition of the Catania region, a land which smells of sea, lava rocks and fire.
The excellent and delicious cuisine of the Villa Paradiso offers a rich menu, which is the result of a painstaking search and exaltation of a combination of various flavours and the maximum optimizing of the local farm products which arrive from the best known surrounding production areas: the pistachios from Bronte, honig and porcini mushrooms from the Etna, red oranges from the Catania region.
And then “the Ionio sea at table”, the sea in front of you, which every day offers its sweet-smelling fragrance of the fresh fish. The masterpiece is “the sea salad” with the exquisite “Royal patelle”, which are big mother-of-pearl shells. Then the swordfish, the anchovies, the sardines, the paddlefish, the red mullets, the sea-urchins which suggest the countless and unexpected solution for preparing different dishes.
Not to be missed in our welcomes the “arancini” made with rice and filled with tomatoes, aubergines and string cheese. For the vegetarians there is the soup with fresh broad beans, the “caliceddi” or the filled artichokes.
Magical moment: the sweets. We offer a vast choice of typical local sweets and among them the “St. Agata’s minne”, a delicate sweet with a cherry in syrup in the form of a nipple, and the “cannoli”, ice-cream and soft ice-cream.
The rich wine list is, also, aimed on Sicily and in particular on the Etna wines: a land with a high call for wine-producing. And it is in the areas around Mt. Etna, where thanks to the particular climatic condition linked to the volcano,that is produced the Etna Doc, a wine in three different qualities: white, red and rosé.
These wines are obtained from the grapes of four different species of vines: the Carricante, the Cataratto, the Nerello Mascalese and the Nerello Mantellato.
