"We don't serve eggs. This is Italy, so eat like Italians." The wording may be off slightly, but this sign at the counter whimsically, if not aggressively, informs the tourist patrons what to expect. And when you're ready to toss out your notions of an American breakfast, you'll be rewarded with some of the best Italian pastries you'll find. The Sicilian twin brothers Massimo and Lucca have made our several visits to Il Pirata some of our best meal memories from Italy or anywhere. Breakfast here is always a delight, with Massimo dishing out the tasty goods and witty quips from the counter, starting our day off right. From experience, we've learned to book our dinner table while we're in for breakfast, and the evening service of delicious pastas and meats is just as fun and friendly as the morning visit. They have been very welcoming and accommodating to our young children, greatly enhancing our experiences. Highly highly recommended!
