Foodie one day itinerary in Enna, Sicily

Where to eat in Enna

Wondering where to eat in Enna? Which are the best restaurants in Enna?

Our trip to Sicily started in Enna, a city right in the centre of Sicily which is strangely ignored by many tourists. Alessandro and I spent an amazing three days in Enna and since I have learned that while traveling many of you don’t stay more than a day in the same city I thought I would give some suggestions for food selections which could help you to handle a one day trip to Enna in the best way possible. Don’t waste your time wondering where to eat in Enna, just follow my recommendations.
Start your breakfast at Caffè Roma in Vittorio Emanuele’s Square; all their sweets are made by them. Don’t forget to try the cannoli here: rather than the big ones I suggest you get the smaller size. If it is not enough then get another small one. I found the big ones, to have too much ricotta cheese for my taste. Caffè Roma in Enna has some chairs on the front square as well, which is absolutely ideal for sunny days.

Have lunch at the Trattoria La Rustica, called by the locals “La Vedova”, the widow. This restaurant on Via Aidone doesn’t look great from the outside but it is very welcoming inside. You can eat typical local food for very competitive prices.

If you want to have a mid-evening snack my suggestion is for  Bar Pasticceria Caruso in via San Francesco D’Assisi.  With enough space in your belly, you should not forget to try the “Arancini”.
For dinner, go to Tommy’s Wine in Piazza Francesco Paolo Neglia. In this warm and welcoming restaurant, you can taste the revisited traditional dishes together with a wide wine selection. Believe me guys, this is one of the best restaurants in Enna. Don’t miss out on this place for any reason.

My after-dinner drink suggestion is Al kenisa, in Via Roma. It is such a curious place as it is a deconsecrated church with a literary caffè. It is a great choice for enjoying a good drink together or just sitting and reading a book. This place is fine also for aperitives and during the weekends they often organize live music. They do have Wi-Fi.

    I love the idea of a literary cafe – eating and reading are 2 of the finest things in life. Hoping to visit Italy next spring – really excited already about the food!

    Italian food is my favorite, I'd love to be able to visit Italy one day and visit so many places while I'm there, and definitely try some AUTHENTIC Italian food.
