Al Fogher Review
A beacon of culinary light shines in Sicily's interior, a region generally filled with good, but basic, places to eat. Ambitious—and successful—dishes here combine traditional ingredients with the creative flair of chef Angelo Treno. Try the borlotti bean soup with angel-hair pasta, mussels, and prawns, or the salt cod cooked in lavender and lemongrass with cauliflower and black olives. The wine list includes nearly 500 labels, and there's even a water list featuring more than a dozen kinds of mineral water. The dining room is unassuming and elegant; in cold weather, you can cozy up to the fireplaces, but the terrace is the place to be in summer. From town, follow Viale Ciancio and Viale Gaeta about 1 km (½ mile) north of Piazza Cascino.
