The robust furnishings, wooden chairs and wooden and marble tables, recall the atmosphere of a traditional restaurant, with the addition of contemporary elements such as light fixtures in Foscarini?s Tropico line with their interwoven texture recalling the wicker baskets of days gone by.
The existing building was subjected to a massive structural renovation to reconstruct its horizontal structures; salefino?s architects focused in particular on the elevations of the interior spaces.
The restaurant is distributed on different levels on the basis of the building?s original structure. The entrance is at the basement level, while there are three rooms on the upper levels and a large terrace covered with a pergola where diners can enjoy panoramic views of Agrigento?s Valley of the Temples.
