Cuisine from our past

WHO WE ARE

Our cuisine is inspired by our homes. To eat well you need the best ingredients, which is why we are dedicated to constantly retrieve products all around Sicily that meet very specific criteria: we select small companies that follow the principles of organic and biodynamic production, who put excellence in quality above easier earning; respect and care for livestock. Our selection of ingredients is exclusively sourced in Sicily, with the exception of a few strongholds of Italian cooking, such as Parmigiano Reggiano.

Feel at home

OUR INGREDIENTS

All of our ingredients come from entirely organic, free trade supply chains, sourced almost exclusively in Sicily. These are a few of our suppliers.

Free-range eggs

Giovanni Lo Faso, Marineo

Organic fruit and vegetables

Ecofruit, Bagheria e Spaccio Bio, Palermo.

Organic meats, grass-fed beef

Giaconia, Petralia Soprana

Traditional cheeses

Caseificio Cucchiara, Salemi

Artisanal pasta

Feudo Masinazzu, Valledolmo

Two extra-virgin olive oil varieties

NaturalmenteBio e  CelAuro

We decided to have two different kinds of extra virgin olive oil available, in both cases made out of 100% Sicilian olives. NaturalmenteBio is a company located on the Nebrodi mountains, that defines in their Amarus oil its primary vocation; it's an excellent organic extravirgin, made with olives of the Santagatese variety. Sanfilippo, based in the small town of Trabia, utilizes Calamignara olives, one of the finest Sicilian cultivars, that from hundreds of years provides an irresistible, characteristic olive oil.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

TripAdvisor
  • 5 star review  Ieri sera ho portato la famiglia a cena e siamo rimasti tutti piacevolmente colpiti. Il locale è molto carino, proprietari e personale sono gentilissimi, il menu è molto buono (siciliano e con rivisitazioni) e il fatto che cambi spesso a seconda di quello che "terra e mare offrono" è molto rassicurante. Una notazione speciale per le polpette di melenzane, la caponata di mele e il crumble di fichi con gelato di fiordilatte e fonduta di cioccolato. Tornerò prestissimo 🙂

  • 5 star review  Ho cenato con degli amici ieri sera al ristorante Quattro Mani..tutto ottimo, pesce freschissimo, location spettacolare, personale gentile e professionale, prezzi ragionevoli. Alla fine della cena il proprietario ci ha fatto fare il tour del locale mostrandoci la piccola ma ben fornita cantina che si trova al primo piano, e anche la cucina che presenta delle vetrate sia sul ristorante che sulla strada, aspetto che io apprezzo molto perchè significa trasparenza. Ci tornerò sicuramente!

  • 5 star review  Posto fantastico, con sale molto grandi e ben areate, situato in una delle zone più belle di Palermo e in pieno centro storico. Personale simpatico e cortese, oltre che professionale e parecchio disponibile. Cucina buonissima, che spazia nella cultura dei sapori mediterranei. Carta dei vini molto variegata e ricercata. Birre in bottiglia e artigianali particolarmente buone. Consigliato assolutamente!

  • 5 star review  Location stupenda, i due chef di qualità ed esperienza. Menu scritto a mano perché cambia a seconda del cibo fresco scelto dagli chef, arredamento curato in ogni dettaglio. Ho cenato con antipasto di polpette di melanzane (buonissimo) e preso un couscous di pesce freschissimo e buonissimo, finito con un dolce della casa: il tutto senza pagare eccessivamente. consigliato
