$$ .:. Antica Focacceria San Francesco
The parent focaccia bakery has been on duty in Palermo since 1834. It came into trouble with the Mafia, but finally spread out to include each and every building around the small Piazza San Francesco, except the medieval church. Today the Focacceria has become a company, with branches in several Italian cities. .:. As for the Milanese branch, purists think that its cuisine is a bit industrial. Citizens and tourists, however, are happy to enjoy caponata, arancini and Sicilian wine served with courtesy a stone's throw from the Duomo.
