Down a side street in tiny Scopello is a bakery indicated by a sign that says "Forno a legnu. Pane Cunzatu" It is the local bread, scooped out in the middle and stuffed with grated cheese, tomatoes and anchovies. A great lunch or a snack to share for €3 each. You can sit on tables outside and enjoy them or take away.

Pane Cunzato is the lunchtime gem of Scopello! It's a little hole-in-the-wall at the very end of a little side street in town, but has authentic and delicious sandwiches and sweets. We went there twice and tried the Pane Cunzato (sandwich with tomato, cheese, anchovy and herbs), Sficione (focaccia with tomatoes, onions, anchovies/tuna and herbs) as well as a fried ball made of rice, ham and cheese and a super delicious sweet treat that looked like a fried empanada with sweetened ricotta and vanilla extract. It's a place you must try if you want a local Sicilian experience.

Marco and Danielle, who own Casa Corcella, recommended this bakery for their Cunzatu when we asked them where to get a substantial snack to sustain us over our 3 hour walk through just a part of the Zingaro Nature Reserve.( Entering the bakery is like going back in time)
Quite a heavy sort of ciabatta, sliced through,and pressed together with local sheep's cheese, lots of olive oil, tomato, anchovies and oregano and salt. Quite delicious.
One imagines that this would have been a staple food the workers would have taken with them into the fields a couple of generations back. Without being patronising, this part of Sicily, as indeed much of the island was abjectly poor -it was not uncommon for people to die of starvation., which I think goes some way to explaning how some of the local people are very reserved. Do read Gavin Maxwell's "Ten Pains of Death". Amongst many other books, it's a real eye opener, a sense of history of the place.

Most reviews are spot-on - great sandwiches, surly staff. Must Do if near Scopello. That really says it al, but as I have to use a minimum of 100 characters, I'll add that it is in a lovely setting on the edge of the village.

Scopello is a very small village, We were sent here by my beb host in Trapani. The pane cunzato sandwich is a traditional food here in Sicily, and this place is very popular in Trapani with quite long history. The staff is not so friendly, they are angry, sweaty and a bit funny. I definitely recommend it!
