The entrance into the Michelin Guide and the 2 Hats in the 2024 Restaurant Guide of L’Espresso: a great year for La Foresteria Restaurant

A memorable 2023 for La Foresteria Restaurant: besides the 2 Forks of Gambero Rosso, also the mention in the prestigious Michelin Guide and the 2 Hats in the 2024 Restaurant Guide of L’Espresso.

La Foresteria Restaurant, located within the Wine Resort of the Planeta family in Menfi on the coast of southwestern Sicily, is preparing to close the year 2023 with significant recognition: it enters the prestigious Michelin Guide 2024, receives 2 Hats with a score of 16.50/20 from the new 2024 Restaurant Guide of L’Espresso – I 1000 Ristoranti d’Italia, edited by Andrea Grignaffini and Alberto Cauzzi, not to mention the 2 Forks with a score of 83/100 from the 2024 Restaurant Guide of Gambero Rosso.

The Michelin Guide 2024 has captured the essence of the Restaurant: “Luxurious structure with rooms of the famous Sicilian winery Planeta, it is a charming landscape of vineyards that will accompany you in this restaurant, where an excellent interpretation of Sicilian cuisine is served. Some products grown by the house also appear on the dishes and of course, a wide cellar with all Planeta labels.”

Here instead is the philosophy and uniqueness of the culinary proposal of chef Angelo Pumilia in the words of the 2024 Restaurant Guide of L’Espresso – I 1000 Ristoranti d’Italia: “Angelo Pumilia’s cuisine is among the few authentically seasonal and territorial in Sicily and stands out for technique, invention, and adaptability to the daily availability of market and catch. The dishes on the menu often undergo changes that do not betray their sense and genesis but rather confirm – indeed – their constructive solidity and narrative strength. What arrives at the table is a punctual expression of the territory in which La Foresteria Planeta is immersed, a Wine Resort where endogenous beauty and intelligent anthropization are in a happy union.”
