Restaurant Details

Despite the fact that the local food cognoscenti rarely mention it, Trattoria La Siciliana remains wildly popular sixteen years after it first opened. The secret, in part, is garlic — tons of it, nowhere more prominent than in the intense olio della mamma, the complimentary dipping oil that starts your meal. Clearly, this is a restaurant that aims to bowl you over, to sock you in the face with flavor. And if you order wisely — sticking mostly to seafood dishes and Sicilian specialties — it’s likely you’ll be won over. Highlights include a seasonal heirloom-tomato salad that’s amped up with olives, capers, and anchovy fillets; the bucatini chi finucchiede, whose saffron- and currant-based sauce speaks to Sicily’s Moorish influence; and, most luxurious of all, the tutto mare linguine with its insanely addictive lobster-infused fresh tomato sauce.
