Torre Alta was born to repeat the success achieved in the U.S.A. From the restaurant "Sapore del mediterraneo", which immediately stood out for excellence and taste.The restaurant is located in a strategic position, near Palermo City, just a few kilometres far from the beaches of Capaci , Carini and Mondello. Torre Alta is an ancient Oliveri water machinery, which dates back to the early 1900s. It represents an important example of archeology and it is constituted by a circular basin - where nowadays you can eat - a water well and a farm building. It has a historical value in the territory of Palermo. Torre Alta is renowned for its food produced with zero food miles: fresh and local fish products, prime meat selection. In our menu you may find dishes for vegetarians , vegans, celiacs
