On our day of location scouting we ended in San Vito Lo Capo (Trapani) named this year cleanest beach in Italy and very close to the natural park "Riserva Naturale Dello Zingaro". San Vito is famous for its cous cous festival, http://www.couscousfest.it/ held June 2-5. I treated myself to a taste of "Cozze al Pomodoro" (mussels in tomato sauce) and an amazing "cous cous di pesce" (fish cous cous).
On our last day before departure I spent a few hours at the "Mercato di Sant'Agata" in Catania, famous for its fish section where you can still find sicilian fishermen selling the catch of the day as well as the freshest fruit and veggies...
The previous night I had the pleasure to eat at "Osteria l'Antica Marina" http://www.anticamarina.it/it/index.html right by the market where the most amazing variety of fish antipasti are served in small bowls quickly passed through the hands of the diners..."panzotti con ricotta al nero di seppia" is one of their pasta speciality as well as the "linguine ai ricci" and I had the luck to taste both! If you ever are in Catania make your palate happy and make sure you have the time to stop for lunch or dinner! BUON APPETITO!
