THE CORIA PHILOSOPHY
“An island of unique fragrances and colours, of enchanting beauty, a land where food and culture intermingle, create contrasts, and play off each other.”
Risotrante Coria was founded in 2008 in the characteristic historic centre of Caltagirone – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – just 200 metres from the famous stairway of Santa Maria del Monte.
It is dedicated to the Colonel Giuseppe Coria, author of the book “Profumi di Sicilia”, a symbol of Sicilian cuisine. Through the devotion and the love that unites the people of Sicily to their land, the author tells of an island characterised by unique fragrances and colours, and by an enchanting beauty.
A land where food and culture intertwine, create contrasts, and play off each other.
THE PROMISES OF THE LAND
“Two chefs who will amaze you with their re-interpretations of Sicilian classics.”
The Michelin Guide
After years spent gaining experience in some of the most important Sicilian restaurants, Domenico Colonnetta and Francesco Patti decided to make the most of their ability to amaze those seeking to be delighted by good food.
Thanks to their efforts, since 2009 the Restaurant has been reviewed by some of the most important guides, such as the Gambero Rosso, L’Espresso, Sole 24 Ore. Furthermore, in 2012 it was awarded a prestigious Michelin Star, the first restaurant in Catania to receive this recognition.

Composed of two tastefully-furnished rooms, the Restaurant unites the elegance of its location – the beautiful historic centre of Caltagirone, the town famous for its ceramics in the heart of Sicily – with attention to interior design.
One special element is the kitchen, which the Chefs have chosen not to hide, but to render visible to the guests. Thus, they have created a way to express, also visually, the commitment and passion that can be found in every dish.
