Pantesco cooking: A reality to taste
A culture, a civilisation and of course the island can be discovered by sitting at a table. Above all, if you are talking about Pantelleria, with its rich and original wine and food
The Zinedi restaurant is under a large covered terrace and solely run by the family. It offers you Pantesco recipes. The specialties are many such as caponata (fried aubergines, tomato sauce, pine nuts, raisins, onions and celery), hors d’oeuvres with vegetables, Tumma (a fresh local cheese), a mature cheese with grape jam. Fresh fish couscous, grilled and baked fish, ravioli with ricotta cheese and mint and finally delicious local cakes called “baci”, “mustaccioli”, “pasticciotti” and almond pastries served with a glass of excellent Passito di Zinedi.
