Traditional Sicilian cuisine always stays true to a very stratified and centuries-old gastronomic heritage in its flavors. It is a regional gastronomic tradition that shows traces and contributions of all the cultures that have settled in Sicily in the last two millennia, handed down with passion from generation to generation. Many of the oldest Sicilian recipes are still prepared and served regularly.
The dishes of the Modican cuisine contain the rich and long history of traditions and cultures of the people who colonized this part of the island in the past. Torre Don Virgilio Restaurant offers Sicilian dishes and typical Modican recipes for a genuine and tasty cuisine with many flavors that come from the daily life of the farm.
In fact, from the daily life of the farm there are unique dishes such as legume soups, homemade pastas such as "cavatieddi", "ricotta ravioli", "a carrittera", "I lolli 'nte favi", and "co maccu" pasta, and even a special pasta "che' paddunedda" dish that was once reserved for Sunday lunch. At the Torre Don Virgilio Restaurant you can breathe the air of peace and relaxation of the old country house and enjoy the best of traditional Iblean and Mediterranean cuisine, made from genuine products from our garden, in full respect of the seasonality of the products.
