Concierge.com's insider take:
Austrian-born chef Andreas Zangerl consistently gets rave reviews for his creative versions of Sicilian classics. Fusionistas go gaga over his prix fixe menu, which has included grilled rabbit loin with olives, capers, and sun-dried tomatoes; pan-seared bluefish with pine nuts, raisins, and fennel sauce; and saffron ravioli stuffed with pesto and topped with toasted pistachio nuts. The backdrop is a 16th-century stone-studded nook in the heart of old town, with a lovely outdoor terrace.
Dinner only. Closed Sundays November to March; closed January and February.
