We decided to get away for a long weekend and head to northern Sicily to Cefalu (pronounced: Chef – a- lu). We have wanted to go here ever since we got to Sicily because of all the great things that we have heard. Its a smaller town that is nestled in between a huge rock formation and the Tyrrhenian Sea. There is more info about Cefalu at this wikipedia link.
We stayed a great little hotel right in the middle of everything that I would recommend called La Plumeria. We had some great food in Cefalu as well.
- Lo Scoglio Ubriaco – Which is translated to “Drunk Rocks” referring to the rocks that this restaurant is perched over. According to the restaurant the legend is about a cargo ship of wine that crashed against the rocks. The views were great from the patio out back of this restaurant… unfortunately we ate at night time and couldn’t really capture a good pic, but the moon was out in full making for a cool scene. This restaurant had the best food of the whole trip and in the top so far of all of Sicily.
- Al Gabbiano – Location is great along the boardwalk with a few other restaurants neighboring. My dish was good (pesce del giorno = fish of the day) , but Jessica’s calamari was pretty bad. They put way too much coating on it or something because all you could taste was oil and batter
We will be back to Cefalu. Very cool vibe to the town and the beach. Also my friend Aaron has caught some good waves here surfing!
