Un angolo di Sicilia bedda (e buona) a Milano. Il locale, disposto su due livelli, porta la tradizione della cucina di mare trapanese in città, con il cous cous che fa da fil rouge di diversi piatti, perfino nel dessert (il cous cous dolce con tiramisù, nel menu invernale). Nel trapanese di questo piatto mediterraneo se ne intendono davvero, tanto da averci fatto pure un rinomato festival gastronomico (il Cous Cous Fest, a San Vito Lo Capo); tradizione gastronomica che il proprietario, da intenditore e appassionato della cucina della sua terra, ha portato a Milano, compresi i bei piatti in ceramica decorati, tipici dell’artigianato isolano.

Il menu è stagionale e non tradisce mai le sue radici trapanesi, con qualche tocco moderno, e sempre all’insegna dell’ottima materia prima. Si può iniziare con l’Arancina di riso allo zafferano e ragù di triglie o con il gustoso Cannolo salato alle alici di Favignana e pecorino dop, con la Caponata di Melanzane con sfoglia di ceci, tanto per citare qualche antipastino. E proseguire con il Cous cous alla trapanese col brodetto di pesce oppure con quello al nero di seppia, ricci di mare e gambero rosso. Oppure puntare alle Busiate - la tradizionale pasta artigianale attorcigliata sul ferretto - al pesto trapanese oppure al gambero rosso e pistacchio, o ancora il Chitarrino al nero con bottarga e limone. Fra i secondi, il Calamaro imbuttunato (ripieno), la frittura, la seppia con vellutata di piselli. Un menu ragionevolmente articolato per rispettare freschezza, stagionalità e varietà di scelta. Tenete un posticino per i dolci: Cannolo, Cassata, Pera cotta al Marsala, granita… fatti in casa, come pure il pane. I vini, con coerenza, sono fra i migliori della provincia di Trapani.

Restaurant come highly recommended in an online review. Food was good but not exceptional. Our waitress was unprepared, we ended up ordering fried fish after explicitly asking whether the fish was whole or in pieces (we didn't want to have to leave out fish bones) but the dish was not as described but contained whole fish.
