The restaurant at the Capofaro Malvasia & Resort, on the island of Salina, also welcomes non-residents and is well worth a visit. The origins of its cuisine are the result of a careful study of the history and traditions of these places and are enhanced by the talents of Riccardo di Giacinto, a young chef and member of the Jeunes Restaurateurs d'Europe, who was recently awarded a prestigious Michelin star. He focuses all of his expertise on his dishes and on enhancing, to the utmost, the marvellous produce offered-up by this unique area. He unearths the most authentic flavours, augmenting their purity and their essentiality and creating a revival of those familiar tastes of the land and sea, of magic and colour. Working alongside him is executive chef, Giovanni Davide Ferreri. This year Capofaro is once again listed by the 'Soste di Ulisse' association that includes all the excellent food, wine and accommodation venues in the region.
