Foodie one day itinerary in Enna

The entire world already know that Italy is so famous for its  delicious food and from its top down dishes and dressings change drastically. Our trip to Sicily started in Enna, a city right in the centre of Sicily which is strangely unconsidered by many tourists. Alessandro and I spent an amazing three days in Enna and having understood that many of you cannot afford more than a day in the same city I thought about giving some suggestions, especially in term of food selections which could help you on handling a one day trip to this beautiful place in the best way possible.


Start your breakfast in 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 to take the smallers, if it is not enough then take another smaller one. For my taste the biggers have too much of ricotta cheese. The caffè Roma has some chairs on the front square as well, which is absolutely ideal for sunny days.

Take your lunch at the "Trattoria La Rustica", called by the locals "La Vedova", the widow. This restaurant in Via Aidone is not that great from the outside but it is very welcoming inside. Here you eat typical local food for very competitive prices.

If you want to have mid evening snack my suggestion goes for  "Bar Pasticceria Caruso" in via San Francesco D'Assisi.  If you have enough space in your belly try the "Arancini"


Dinner goes 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 a gem in Enna, don't miss out this place for any reason.

An after dinner drink suggestion certainly goes to Al kenisa, in Via Roma, it is such a curious place as it is a deconsecrated church with literary caffè where 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.
