Cucina Papoff, Palermo

32 Via Isidoro La Lumia
Palermo , Sicily
Tel: 39 091 586 460's insider take:

Everyone in Palermo will tell you to go to this atmospheric, torch-lit restaurant with tall brick arches—and they're right. Though it sounds like some Italian-themed joint in Croatia (it's named after the Bulgarian founder), Cucina Papoff is all about traditional Sicilian dishes. These include caponata (diced eggplant with celery, olives, capers, and sugar), maccu (a fava bean soup with wild fennel), and grilled swordfish with capers and citron (the local citrus fruit, like a very dry lemon).

Closed Sundays. No lunch on Saturdays.
