Where to eat well on the island of San Domino - Tremiti Islands: Restaurants and Typical Products

We know that traveling is as beautiful as it is tiring and, having arrived in the evening, we feel peckish and the best solution, if you are in a new place, is to taste the delicacies of the place.

Thank goodness the Tremiti Islands offer a certain variety of choices!

Starting from the use that is usually made of stale bread, which is found in recipes such as the "Fe'jute fish", which is not based on fish but on a soup of vegetables, cherry tomatoes, and stale bread, and the Scescille, also based on stale bread, eggs, and cheese.

Then, clearly, a chef who works on the Tremiti Islands gets his best form when he cooks fish-based dishes in the kitchen, such as fish soup, spaghetti with clams, scapes, and lobsters!
