... Out of Normality!) It's a new vegetarian place, and having already experience some of the deliciously prepared bounty of Sicilian market gardens, thought I'd try it.

For our main courses, I enjoyed Rigatoni alla Norma, pasta with a rich tomato sauce, topped with fried eggplant, fresh basil and salted ricotta, while Mario enjoyed the catch of the day, grilled, and ...
