Al Faro restaurant

The Al Faro is one of Cefalu’s many hidden gems, as you will only see it clearly if you walk along the coastline towards the lighthouse, which is the restaurant itself. This amazing restaurant is just a ten minute walk down the coast, and provides seats that are outside of the restaurant itself, right by the sea, to have a quiet, romantic atmosphere to it.

The main dishes that are offered at the Al Faro are seafood cuisine, all locally caught and prepared fresh, which are available for a reasonable price. One of the waiters, Mimmo, who is favored by tourists and locals alike, is always ready with menus in hand. One of the favorites that is served at the Al Faro, one of the appetizers, is the grilled pecorino cheese that comes with a delicious cherry topping. Some of the noted seafood that is nothing but authentic, are the squid carpaccios and all of the fish that can be ordered. The Al Faro also serves amazing pastas, not just seafood, such as the homemade pasta with mushrooms and shrimp.

 

If you are unable to reach the Al Faro by the coast; however, it’s a simple walk straight out of the center of town, and is very easily accessed if you are in a car. Unlike the majority of the restaurants in town, you can reach the Al Faro by car. The best time to visit is right before the sun sets because of the tables that overlook the ocean, and will create the best ambiance if you are visiting the restaurant with your sweetheart.

 

The Al Faro is one of Cefalu’s prized gems that everyone absolutely loves, and is one that everyone should discover. You can give them a call at +39. 0921 424409 to inquire about their menu.  More

Sant’Ambrogio

The small location that is tucked in between a little crook in a hill right close to Cefalu in Sicily is fabulous.  Only five kilometres away from Cefalu, it’s a chance to walk into what seems like a completely different century.

belvedere+di+sant+ambrogio

Cefalu offers you beauty of a fishing port that is ancient with wonderful cathedrals that are Romanesque in design.  However, it’s full of tourist, and getting much busier.  Sant’Ambrogio is not at all, in fact the life in this little location is much the same as it was in the last 500 years.  Where you can still find old man sitting on the beach in rows, while wives are sitting gossiping on the steps of their houses.

While the girls will watch the boys from afar acting as if they are not even noticing you, the boys pose around their vehicles!  You will find the priest who is going across the piazza on his way to work, while the cats walk in the alleys.

It’s often touted as a real “experience”, and if you want to see it, stop by this little village.  It may not be this way for long where you can view olive trees, pines and fruit trees among a rural setting.  But there are so many fabulous things to see in Sant’Ambrogio, it’s really a stop you should take to view for yourself!
