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.
