Our Restaurant “Locanda Nerello”, set on the terrace during summer, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and indoor during other seasons, reflects our Eco-Bio identity.Our commitment and efforts to create the experience you will have at Monaci starts from the table at our restaurant and from the work on our farm, where our products are grown to become part of our menu and our traditional cuisine, based on food seasonality.
We guarantee freshness and quality, without resorting to ready-made or processed meals as we only use fresh products. Our restaurant is the expression of our estate, where the dedication to the lands and the respect for the environment are combined with passion for food and for the territory, with the refined wines of Etna as protagonists.
Our restaurant is deeply committed in the cause of the Slow Food Movement. We believe in the attitude of slowness, we are passionate about food as an element of authenticity and as an experience itself. The aim of Locanda Nerello is to recover what we seem to have lost, the original tastes and flavors, based on healthy and refined ingredients, original and ancient wheat varieties and rare native species of fruits and vegetables. Each dish is the fruit of an accurate research, aiming at the balance between authenticity, taste and genuineness.
Guests will learn the secrets of making our homemade pasta and gnocchi, prepared with old Sicilian wheat and filled with wild herbs collected on our farm. The lesson takes place in the Hotel’s own bakery, where the homemade bread, pasta and pastries we offer our guests are made every day.
