Discover the New Summer Menu at Vicio Il Mastro Pastaio

Freshness, Lightness, and Authentic Sicilian Flavors

Summer has arrived, and with it, the brand-new summer menu at Vicio Il Mastro Pastaio! Designed for those who love authentic Sicilian cuisine but want to stay in shape for the beach season, our summer menu offers light, fresh, and flavorful dishes. Our menu consists almost entirely of fish dishes, highlighting seasonal ingredients. Of course, the menu also caters to meat lovers and vegetarians.

Tartare di Tonno Rosso e Pesca: A Burst of Freshness
Begin your culinary journey with our tartares, a perfect combination of lightness and taste. Try the Tartare di Tonno Rosso e Pesca, a dish that blends the delicacy of tuna with the sweetness of peach, enhanced by lemon gel that adds freshness and fragrance. For an added crunch and decorative touch, we include “capelli d’angelo,” crispy rosemary-infused fried spaghettini.
A Vegetarian Delight: Tartare di Pomodoro
Opt for a vegetarian solution with our Tartare di Pomodoro San Marzano marinato in osmosi, accompanied by a savory zabaglione cream and truffle shavings. To provide a savory, pungent, and slightly bitter contrast, we finish the dish with cucunci, the flower of the caper.

A Frutti di Mare Tiepidi in Guazzetto: The Sea on your Table

No summer menu is complete without tasting our Frutti di Mare Tiepidi in Guazzetto. This dish captures the essence of a Sicilian summer, bringing the flavor of the sea to your table in a light and refined preparation.

Art of Colors and Sea Flavors

Culinary art meets color with our appetizing and colorful Polpo alla Griglia.

The tender octopus, flavored with bay leaf and thyme, rests on black rocks reminiscent of Pantelleria’s volcanic lava stones.

The spirals created by a lime-flavored carrot cream, drops of orange gel, cuttlefish obsidian, and green sea herbs make this dish a true postcard from the island of Pantelleria.

Light and Balanced Pasta

Our pastas are the heart of Sicilian tradition, reimagined to be light and balanced. Savor the typical Tagliolino con Vongole e Bottarga, or try La Pasta con le Sarde di Vicio, not to be missed! These dishes combine simplicity and rich flavors without being heavy.

Impeccable Presentation

Each dish on our summer menu is a work of art, meticulously crafted to delight not only the palate but also the eyes. The refined plating and vibrant colors catch the eye and whet the appetite at first glance.

Tataki di Tonno all’Eoliana, with its geometric and elegant plating, is a nod to Japanese culinary art, highlighting the freshness and quality of the tuna, while still maintaining the tradition of the authentic “Eoliana” recipe. This dish is a reinterpretation of the famous Tonno all’Eoliana, which has always been a staple on the menu at Vicio Il Mastro Pastaio.

Delightful Main Courses Inspired by Palermo

Our new main courses evoke the vibrant balconies of Palermo, adorned with colorful flowers.

Try the Balconi di Pesce Spada alla Palermitana, a dish that captures the essence of Sicilian cuisine with its tender swordfish steaks cooked to perfection. The dish is made unique by its Sicilian pistachio breadcrumb coating, and the salad is accented with sweet-and-sour raspberry onion, just like the accompanying mayonnaise, adding exceptional value to the plate. Each bite brings you closer to the lively spirit of Palermo’s streets.

Experience in La Mia Grigliata di Pesce

A Palermo-style seafood grill. The special feature of this dish is the almond-gratinated potatoes, the charred bell pepper sauce, and the swordfish skewer flavored with orange gel, making this grill an explosion of flavor and texture contrasts.

Delights for Meat Lovers: Filetto al Melograno

For meat lovers, our low-temperature cooked Filetto al Melograno is a must-try.

Accompanied by a Millefoglie di Patate and a fresh mixed salad, this dish combines tradition and innovation for a unique culinary experience.

Dulcis in Fundo…

Conclude your culinary experience with the extraordinary Sicilian granitas, Vicio’s artisanal gelato, and, hear ye, hear ye, the unique and incomparable Cannolo Gelato di Vicio. These delights are the perfect ending to a meal that celebrates Sicilian tradition and creativity.
