Polizzi Generosa: Orto Dei Cappuccini Ristorante

Via Cappuccini 3 , Phone: 0921.688535

Reviewed by: Normandy Dude from France, review #494

When: 2003

There's a courtyard with an old bread/pizza oven. It's great and very reasonable.

Big surprise, hard to find. This hilltop town was the favorite of an author I read (Theresa Maggio) in her book "The Stone Boudoir." She overrates the town, I must admit.

When the well-indicated *other* restaurant was full for lunch, we asked locals if there was another restaurant, and *everyone* we spoke to said that there wasn't. But then an old lady chased us down and said that she did know of one place... and she led us to the Orto Dei Cappuccini.

The Orto Dei Cappuccini Ristorante is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to find and there are no signs indicating its existence -- even on the outside of the place! Without the old lady's help we would have left town hungry!
