Sicula sugnu: a voyage into my Sicily with the same surprise and curiosity as if Eva came here now!!!

Restaurant: La Locanda del Colonnello

 La Locanda del Colonnello, in the heart of the elegant Baroque in Modica Alta:
where the flavours of our Sicilian traditions meet the art of a young but already an excellent chef and his brigade (Accursio Crapraro)
It's the perfect place to relax , in one of its four rooms or in the lovely open courtyard of an XIX's century palace,testing authentic food in a friendly but elegant atmosphere.
Execellent the service.

 Among the products carefully selected by the Locanda del Colonnello , I'm glad to find the wonderful olive oil produced by my friends The Mastri di San Basilio!

The plate of the day was Macco di fave con polpo al profumo di finocchietto selvatico - 
broad beans soup with octupus at the wild fennel flavour

other specialities:
scacce - local rolled stuffed pizza typical from Modica
coniglio a stimpirata - rabbit with vegetables in sweet and sour sauce
pasta con le sarde e mandorle - pasta with sardines and almonds
gelo di limone o di cannella - lemon or cinemon pudding begin with!

buon appetito !

A curiosity:
If you are wondering who is the Colonel?
After crossing the doorway, have a look at the portrait hang on the wall...
The mustaches, you find on the  restaurant's sign, were His mustaches , and once He was the owner of the building.

  1. Ciao Lucia, Thanks so much for bringing this place to my attention. I hadn't heard about it. Your lovely pictures make me want to head on over there. (How are the prices???)

  2. ciao Jann
    it's nice and prices are quite good (not cheap..)
    it's the same brigade of the Gazzaladra, in Modica as well...

    then, buon appetito .

    Last week I was there with some American who really appreciate it so much
