Stella Michelin 2024 - Chef Patron Alessandro Ingiulla

The Restaurant


In the heart of Catania, between the blue sea of the Ionian coast and Mount Etna, an active volcano rich in energy that never ceases to involve with its picturesque landscapes. This is where the Sapio Restaurant, Michelin star 2024 (starred since 2019), was born. Wanted and conceived by Chef Alessandro Ingiulla together with Roberta Cozzetto, an integral part of the reception and the Restaurant Management.

Sapio's cuisine is freshness and kindness, it is love for the fundamental ingredients and it is a passion for the aesthetics of taste. The menus respond to the seasons and the raw materials chosen are those that the sea and the land of Italy offer us, with the right combinations, including international ones.
A gastronomic experience that deserves the stop!

One of those privileged places of the Sapio restaurant

Much more than a cellar. Here you can breathe the city of Etna with wonderful international wine contaminations. A privileged place structured and designed to choose the labels that best match the identity of Chef Alessandro Ingiulla's cuisine, but also to stop and live a taste experience, in a space full of harmonious sounds and intimate colors.
Sicily is the absolute protagonist with the Val di Noto, Val di Mazara and above all Val Demone, characterized by the majestic presence of our volcano, Etna and then again Italy and France, with its wines and champagne.
In the wine list, important verticals, historic labels, emerging producers and certified organic wineries
