Housed in an old palazzo, this casual place has served meals since 1889. One entire wall is covered with a vast mirror, the others are adorned with Sicilian pottery, and an outdoor terrace soothes diners in summer. The seasonal menu includes local preparations such as coppole di cacchio (peppers stuffed with spaghetti, potato, and basil), grilled pork chops, and a 15th-century specialty called controfiletto all'annese—a veal fillet with onions, artichokes, pig jowl, and white wine. Choose from a decent selection of Sicilian wines to accompany your meal.
