Restaurant La Vela, located in the charming town of Pieta, is the area’s red tuna shrine, perfectly transformed by Sicilian chef Enrico Alecci. The superior quality ingredients are at the core of solid seafood cuisine and classic preparations. Rising above the rest are the raw fish platters, the fried calamari, the salt-baked sea bass and the paccheri pasta with assorted seafood sauce. The courteous and refined welcome in the dining room is in the hands of Michelle who wisely coordinates the entire staff. The well-constructed wine list boasts both prestigious and original references. Don’t overstuff yourselves with the appetizers.
