Here we need to open a parenthesis on the cooking of Lampedusa, and in particular on the history and innovations of the Trattoria-Pescheria Azzurra. Born as a family fish farm, good fresh fish is always available, at zero miles production. Then there is the room for the restaurant, in a veranda with tables and music background, at street Rome. The cuisine is made of fish and offers dishes that are the fruit of the ancient Sicilian culinary tradition passed on from generation to generation. All products are carefully prepared according to their original home recipes to tasting fragrances and flavorings from past times. On the other hand, the innovation consists of the Fish Arancini, prepared in ten unique types and fried on the spot. The central location, the genuine cooking, the variety of the menu make the Trattoria-Pescheria Azzurra a great choice to savor Sicily's flavors both with family and friends at any time
