The menu at the Ti Vitti is based on what is in season, such as swordfish and some of the special treats that are sourced locally, such as the basilisco mushrooms that come from the Monte Madonie. During the winter time, the menu at the Ti Vitti is down to three secondi, three primi and three antipasti, which is all extremely fresh based on what is available at the local market during that day. The Ti Vitti proposes typical Sicilian dishes that are traditional through their tastes and colors.

The name, Ti Vitti, comes from the traditional Sicilian card game, “vitti you get on and off”, which is inspired from the Sicilian dialect that means “I saw you”. The game is played by trying to get one of the players to break a rule, such as speaking, and is a game that is usually taught to children.

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.

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.
