Promised so much, delivered so little (literally in the case of the skimpy portions). To be fair, this was a meat-heavy (or more accurately, donkey-laden menu), so the restaurant's focus may not be on vegetarians, but there were a couple of non-Eeyore options to choose...More

Welcome to Me CumpariTuriddu, between real Sicilian and vintage taste. A journey through memory to a Sicily distant in timethat you will be able to recall tastinghome made products and Slow Food products: this is what Me CumpariTuriddu – restaurant, bistro, cafe and typical roducts store– would like his guests to live.

As among Sicilian families, the core of house is the kitchen, strictly open-style. The door is always open and the table laidto offer perfumes and the real taste of a Sicilian grandma’s cuisine, ready for you to taste at any time. In the cupboard there is alwaysa specialty to be told and tasted. Me CumpariTuridduis in Catania, located in the city centre in Piazza Turi Ferro, formerly namedSpirito Santo.

Our philosophy:

• We adhere to the Alliance of Chefs with Slow Food for the Protection of small endangered local productions.
• We believe in the recovery of seasonality and in the enhancement of the traditional Sicilian cuisine.
• We choose and select only small natural Sicilian productions, organic and biodynamic, no make use of intermediaries.
• We believe in the protection of the right to pleasure on the table, free from the strict logic of the market and the frantic eating habits.
