Fodor's Expert Review La Botte 1962

$$ Monreale Italian

It's worth the short drive or inexpensive taxi from Monreale to reach this restaurant, which is famous for well-prepared local specialties (though it's open limited hours, so call before you come). Seafood dishes include bavette don Carmelo, a narrow version of tagliatelle with a sauce of swordfish, squid, shrimp, and pine nuts, and other regular favorites include involtini alla siciliana (meat roulades stuffed with salami and cheese); local wines make a tasty accompaniment.
