Exploring: Marzamemi

After a nice Sunday walk in Vendicari, we ventured south to the fishing village of Marzamemi. Unassuming buildings pushing us towards the open space of the simple, but inviting piazza. Gorgeous stone walls, enticing doors painted vibrant turquoise and red,  boats bobbing in the water and a tasty lunch at Taverna La Cialoma (especially the octopus salad and eggplant with lemon ricotta). We were on a mission to share a piece of Sicily with Nicola and actually we ended up experiencing something new and wonderful ourselves (thank you, Margaret!).

One of an outstanding place near the sea. One thing I want to know about octopus salad and eggplant with lemon ricotta. How did they make it?
