Chef Ciccio’s philosophy is based on continuous research on the deep-rooted culinary traditions in ancient Sicilian cuisine. He is particularly interested in the cuisine from Ragusa Ibla, the oldest and most magnificent part of the city. To him, research is fundamental. It allows him to study the history of local culinary traditions and convert their limitations into strengths. In addition, he applies the most advanced techniques and technology modern cuisine can offer.
“It’s necessary to educate people’s palates to taste both ancient and current flavors”, said Chef Ciccio. Through his concept of food service, he supports and promotes local farmers and craftsmen. He is passionate about local and exotic herbs and they are used extensively in his progressive cuisine.
Chef Ciccio successfully manages to express the very essence of the island, the smells and flavors that awaken all the senses. He is a chef truly passionate about allowing the myriad flavors of Sicilian cuisine speak to his customers through each of his carefully crafted and artistically presented dishes.
