Il Sale Art Cafe
Restaurant
Via Santa Filomena, 10/12, Catania; Tel.: 095-316888
This stylish but informal restaurant is located inside the art gallery of the same name. It serves huge pizzas with interesting toppings like smoked cheese and pistachios from Bronte, but also has delicious homemade pasta. Try the le tagliatelle nere (the black color comes from squid ink) in a creamy sauce of crushed almonds, or their personal take on pasta alla Norma: the eggplant-tomato mixture is stuffed into big ravioli. All the bread is homemade, too, and they have a good selection of wines. Open for dinner only; reservations recommended.
