Via Bordonaro is a delightful little street which was little known until recently, when it underwent redeveloping, and which now displays many little bars and restaurants offering typical Sicilian fish dishes right in the middle of this incomparably wonderful landscape.
The Ristorante Pizzeria Kentia al Trappitu, for instance, offers a variety of dishes, skilfully prepared by its cooks using the best Mediterranean fresh fish, paired with high-quality wine. The guests’ palate will be amazed by the restaurant’s range of antipasti, soups, first and second courses whose main ingredients are mussels, clams, calamari, lobsters, octopus, oysters, orata, sea bass, cuttlefish, and soles which have been fished the very same day. Furthermore, you can also taste some excellent sushi. Kenzia al Trappitu, though, offers also delicious meat-based dishes as well as fanciful pizzas you can enjoy with your friends.
In via Bordonaro, close to the old port Cefalù, there’s also the Ristorante Pizzeria Al Porticciolo. Overlooking the sea, il Porticciolo offers its guests the chance of enjoying a breath-taking view, enhancing the pleasantness of your experience. As a matter of fact, during the warm season, you can sit at one of the tables set on the terrace overlooking the pier, close to the rocks. Guests can get a taste of the Sicilian traditional cuisine, from fresh home-made pasta to fish- and meat-based main courses, as well as the exotic taste of specialities such as cous cous. Fish-based dishes are prepared using only with fresh fish, with seafood, shellfish, salmon, tuna, octopus and sea urchins, stewed or grilled, playing the main roles. The meat-based dishes – prepared using only meat of certified origin – include filet, either grilled or with green peppercorn sauce, entrecôte, escalopes and many more specialities cooked in different ways and served with fresh vegetables. The restaurant suggests pairing its dishes with a variety of white and red wine, both local and national, as well as prosecco, sparkling wine and champagne. If you decide to have a pizza, on the other hand, you can pair it with a classic or a craft beer. At last, to end your meal, il Porticciolo makes delicious homemade desserts which are typical of the local pastry-making.
Along via Bordonaro you can also choose to eat at N’Adelina, a little restaurant which opened recently, offering the perfect alternative to traditional fish restaurants. Here you can indeed approach a refined cuisine based on salads, bruschettas, aubergine rolls, burrata and wonderful gourmet sandwiches as well as high-quality craft draught beer, a rich selection of local wines and fanciful cocktails. It is an ideal place where to enjoy rich aperitif or a late-evening snack.
Lastly, another place you can find walking along via Bordonaro is Il Saraceno. Situated in a privileged position with a view of the blue sea, this restaurant has a large terrace where you can enjoy delicious fish-based meals and much more in a unique setting.
