Each time I gotta catch a late flight I like to offer a dinner to the friend who accompanies me to the. Airport and get a bit buzz :) Lovely atmosphere, fine food and good tapas for even just a "reinforced aperitif" - that's how they call it in Sicily! See you before my next flight :)

Atmospheric informal restuarant in wall of Biscari Palace. Food excellently chosen and brilliantly served. Staff engaged to explain wine and food and to offer extras that one might appreciate. Two visits during short stay, and I was the only tourist in sight - bliss!
