We rented a Fiat 500 last weekend and headed off to Agrigento via a scenic route which took us through Caltagirone. We had a look at the famous ceramic staircase but our real mission was to enjoy pranzo at Il Locandiere, an Osteria d'Italia (SlowFood) recommendation. They did not steer us wrong as we enjoyed a series of tasty and unusual antipasti and two "first" plates as part of a special fixed-price lunch menu. Our waiter suggested an excellent local white wine to go with everything. Here are some photos from the day. We went on from here to Piazza Armerina and Agrigento...more on that next time.
