Sicilians love their food. They are often spotted eating on the go while walking, talking, shopping and going about their daily lives.

Local delicacies and traditional fare are available, though some dishes are for the more adventurous foodie, such as quarumi (veal bowels in a broth) or stigghiola (lamb entrails cooked on the grill on a skewer).
