I designed the tasting menus to let you live a colorful and complete tasting experience but you can also freely choose à la carte menu. My will explain every detail, every secret hidden under the layers of flavors that I wrapped on each recipe.
A’ Cuncuma Restaurant
Embroidered curtains, wicker weaves, fish nets, creels, the underground tunnels of Beati Paoli, the hidden meanings in the high reliefs of the Cathedral.. The tradition travels in time through passed down secrets. The Sicilian cuisine seems simple but it is also the result of subtle alchemy.
The Palermitan chef Vincenzo Pinto is part of the Sicilian cuisine élite because in A’Cuncuma Restaurant he menaged to offer two experiences: the gourmet dinner with two tasting menus and the traditional dinner presented with high level shades.
