The Restaurant

The restaurant at Tarantola specialises in Sicilian country cooking – simple and tasty, changing with the seasons, using the freshest ingredients, as natural and genuine as can be. Our chef also likes to create his own versions of age-old recipes – traditional western Sicilian with a twist.

Dishes are cooked using home-grown vegetables, wild herbs foraged from the hillside, tomato paste made from our own tomatoes dried on the terrace, ricotta made from our own goats milk, fresh hand-made pasta, and the best local meat, fish and cheese.

Wine, olive oil, and liqueurs produced on the estate are all served in the restaurant.

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meals are on offer, but please give us a little bit of notice, as most ingredients are either picked or bought on the day.
