Nobel laureate Octavio Paz wrote "if two kiss / (...) / the world is real / and tangible, / wine is wine, bread / regains its savor". Chef Angelo recreates this concept at his restaurant: tomatoes tastes like fruit, beef is pure flavor, lemon shavings on an almond dessert taste like heaven. A selected bottle of Cerasuolo di Vittoria closes the perfect circle. Chef Angelo humbly attributes it all to the selection of ingredients and his grandmother's recipes. A search for perfection and sheer passion seem to be basic ingredients though...

We started out with drinks elsewhere and the Sicilians give you plenty of snacks with drinks so we were not starving when we came to La Grotta, but we wanted to try it so I only had the Carne di maiale al sugo (pork in a red sauce). The sauce was fabulous - flavors blended into a complex richness - but the pork was about half fat and gristle. Still, worth trying.
