A corner of Sicily in Milan
An elegant dining room decorated with cement tiles recovered from old Sicilian residences and circular decorative elements, resembling those of a telescope, welcomes guests to the gastronomic universe of Terrammare. Here, amidst wood tables, majolicas and baroque elements inlaid in the boiserie and large decorative chandeliers, typical of Sicilian tradition, diners can sample authentic Trinacria cuisine, with a particular focus on the areas of Modica and Scicli. The menu aims to “bring contemporary Sicilian cuisine to Milan, in keeping with the constantly changing culinary scene, and consists of an abundance of blue fish, to respect the bio-diversity of the Mediterranean, creating an ideal union between the land and the sea,” to echo the words of Chef Peppe Barone and Restaurant Manager Stefania Lattuca.
The gastronomic offering is based on the use of authentic, local Sicilian produce that takes centre stage in dishes like “pasta with sarde” revisited in a contemporary key, “cosciotto di coniglio glassato alla stimpirata”, with a sweet and sour sauce typical of caponata or “risotto milanese portato al mare”, a symbol of the combination of Sicilian and Milanese cuisine. Particular attention is paid to the choice of wines. The restaurant offers an extensive wine list ranging from the finest labels on Sicily’s wine-making scene to small emerging producers and biodynamic wineries.
