Agritursmo San Marco Etna Reviews
Friendly family service and flavorful home cooking Sep 26, 2009
Wow, what an experience. The location is out of a movie. It's in the middle of nowhere and you will enjoy every miute there. It's a postcard.
They grow many fuits and vegetables. There is a vineyard on the property as well.
We were greeted by the owner, an older man with the widest smile on his face. He speaks a dialect of Spanish, which is found in this area and the northeast corner of Sicilia.
The food was tasty and fresh. We had the most tasty bruschetta, provolone, and dense corn herb bread. Then we were served homemade pasta with fresh tomato sauce with many spices and herbs. Then we had fresh pecorino and parmesan that made the pasta pop with flavor. It was the most simple yet most flavorful pasta dish that I’ve ever had.
Rob had some lamb and a sausage; I had some olives, a delicious breaded mushroom picked from the forest, and a flavorful potato cake. We were served generous amounts of wine made from their own vineyard.
The gentleman serving us said that he stomped the grapes himself. Maybe he did and maybe it just a great story for us. He was wonderful.
At the end of the wonderful meal, we asked for a picture of the owner and his wife. She had been cooking all of this wonderful food. They are so happy to oblige that she showered us with kisses.
What an experience
