Ustica's famous lentil production
Ustica's famous lentil production

"Da Umberto" is our restaurant: family-owned and run since 1976. It is one of Ustica's main points of reference.


In our restaurant, we use mainly biological products from the island and exclusively fish from Ustica.

Our specialties include typical Ustica and Sicilian dishes made with recipes created with a mother's attention for her family. Hence, the sweet and sour wild fennel veggie balls, the special Ustica lentil soup, the lobster and shrimp linguini, the unique anchovies with figs among others. We also make typical desserts and pastries and -made with dad Umberto's special recipe-- an original wild fennel digestif: finocchietto

We also offer a rich Sicilian wine list, and, upon request, take-away service and tourist menus for groups.
