Have you eaten at Luce e Limoni?

Owner's description

Luce e Limoni is the symbolic return of owner Fabrizio Zafarana to his home, Sicily. It is the materialisation of a concept woven with beauty, local Sicilian cuisine and good taste. In a way, it is the repossession of Fabrizio’s roots.

“ The menu embraces our native approach to food — take the best ingredients, allow that quality to shine through and present them with as little fuss as possible.”

Our food is the story of a long trip which changes over time but with one common point: the tradition. In Sicily, trade brought hundreds of years of foreign influence, which we try to bring in our restaurant by offering revisited traditional dishes giving fresh sensations to our customers.
