We came on Sunday afternoon to try the pane cunzato (or "cunzatu" in Sicilian) often mentioned online, and there were hundreds of locals there--it was clearly "the" place for lunch. We took a number (55) and, as they were serving number 40, waited an hour in shoulder-to-shoulder conditions despite the efficient handling of each client, which was a great chance to be among local residents; we were the only non-Italians there. Some people bought dozens of items. There is minimal seating, and you will be given a tray and waxed paper on which the order is placed; return the tray at the end. The pane itself (split and dug-out foccaccia in which there is cheese, roasted tomatoes, anchovies, olive oil, salt, and oregano) was tasty though not "knock your socks off" delicious, which should not be expected, as it is a 3-euro sandwich. The owners and customers were friendly and we enjoyed the experience as well as the opportunity to replicate the pane cunzato at home.
