The typical recipes of our land! Let yourself be conquered by the true flavors of Sicily.
Nescy is a street food restaurant located in Castellamare del Golfo, Sicily.
The restaurant pays homage to the street food that is a part of Sicilian identity. Street food is a symbol of history and popular traditions, telling stories of crowded alleys, street vendors, and simple, tasty, and genuine ingredients.
Nescy revisits typical Sicilian specialties with innovative combinations, choosing ingredients from the local territory, often seasonal, for enticing and unique flavor combinations. We have chosen the name NESCY with care, attention and love for our land.
NESCY means N-Nature E-Ethic S-Sicily C-Coppu Y-You !
Furthermore in Sicilian, Nesci means going out, and therefore for us it is a way to invite you to live life enjoying the colours of nature.
The true flavors of Sicily are encapsulated in "coppi," the typical paper cones with many specialties all prepared on the spot: fried small fish, fresh squid and red prawns from Mazara, Palermo's chickpea fritters, and delicious arancine. The ingredients of our land are the protagonists of the first courses, reinvented by the chef's creativity, and of sandwiches with sensational flavors.
Let yourself be surprised by the catch of the day. And for dessert, be tempted by traditional recipes: granita, cassata, cannoli, and much more. Our dishes have always been a tribute to authenticity and beauty! The uniqueness of our territory's ingredients is the inspiration for our recipes.
From this attention and love for regional specialties, we have developed a desire to include in our idea of cuisine even those ingredients that, due to their characteristics, are at risk of extinction, such as the "presidi slow food": Castrofilippo's straw onion, Castelbuono's manna, Nubia's red garlic, Villalba's lentils, and Trapani's sea salt.
In Nescy, you can breathe the most authentic Sicily!
Prestigious ceramics from Caltagirone, with their geometric patterns and refined decorations in shades of blue and white, enhance the furnishings, making the atmosphere even warmer and more welcoming.
The central element of our environments is the open kitchen, where street food takes shape and every dish is prepared rigorously on the spot. Order our specialties and taste them on our terraces.
We went to this restaurant with friends and were impressed by the professionalism, but above all by the goodness of the dishes. The prices are proportional to the excellent quality of the food, which is truly exceptional. The restaurant is very welcoming and based on Sicilian tradition. The only flaw is that they have no flaws! I will definitely return.
I go to the restaurant and order a "Coppu Russu Calamaro", a delicious fried cup, fresh and very tasty seafood! I recommend it! The place is very characteristic and welcoming, as well as the staff being very helpful and friendly! I will definitely go back to try many other dishes.
Suitable venue for all ages and especially for all budgets (considering the quality of the dishes offered). We were positively impressed by the delicacy of the dishes and the courtesy of the staff. The environment is very nice and carefully crafted down to the smallest details. Located on a staircase that leads from the center to the port. We will come back to taste the other dishes.
Nescy offers a wide choice of coppi, sandwiches, pasta and desserts. All between fish, meat and vegetables. Highly recommended if you want to taste real Sicilian dishes. I had a fried coppo with red mazzara prawns, squid rings and zucchini flowers: the frying was dry and crunchy, the fish was very fresh, you could feel the true taste of the sea.
