Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bar Vitelli, Piazza Fossia, 7, 98038 Savoca ME, Italy

One day I had the pleasure of chatting with Signora Maria, the legendary owner of Bar Vitelli. While I was drinking a "do parrinu" coffee and a lemon granita with sesame biscuits, Mrs. Maria told me about her great friendship with the Italian-American director Francis Ford Coppola. He met him for the first time when he had to look for an alternative place in Corleone to shoot the film The Godfather Second Part. And the director chose Savoca.

It was 1971. Since then Signora Maria helped the famous director organize everything: the procession, the setting up of the restaurant, the lunch, the search for extras. At every birthday of Signora Maria, the director sent her a letter and some flowers.

Even after the death of Mrs. Maria, the legendary Bar Vitelli di Savoca continues to be the destination of all movie lovers and curious tourists who want to visit a bar-museum, full of newspaper articles, photographs, testimonies of the film.

Amazing tour!
I highly recommend this tour ! It was outstanding, it was an authentic experience and really made me feel at home. Aldo was soo good to me and my family. He made us the most incredible food and drinks and really made us feel like family. He has such a beautiful B&B which is where we ate and drank with a breath taking view and garden. We loved it and it was definitely an experience we will never forget !

Wonderful evening in Taormina
This was a fantastic experience! We were picked up promptly from our hotel. Aldo and his team made us feel welcome in his villa immediately. Beautiful garden and the views are stunning. We learned how to make the famous arincini. We rolled the rice balls as Aldo explained his technique. Next we watched Aldo prepare the cannoli cream and dough for the shells and we each made a cannoli shell to stuff after dinner. We moved on to a lesson on making macaroni by hand, reminding us of the old days when large Italian families got together to prepare Sunday dinners! Of course we had some wine and appetizers in between. When we were finished with the prep we sat down to a wonderful dinner with Aldo and his family This was a full evening of cooking and sharing with generous kind people . I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic Sicilian cooking experience.

Sicilianità rappresentata al Top ! Lo consiglio a tutti i miei amici
Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di conoscere Aldo e Francesco, due fratelli, anche uniti nella passione per la ristorazione e l'ospitalità. Abbiamo mangiato specialità siciliane, con i profumi di un tempo. Tutto cucinato con arte, maestria e valorizzando le nostre eccellenze siciliane. Sicuramente un esperienza da ripetere. Molto bello il tema delle Carte Siciliane, di Fiero di Essere Siciliano.
