Do you know for a Palermitan, what “scarpetta” (shoe) is?

Mmm… you are thinking of the Cinderella fairy tale, the prince found his beloved thanks to the shoe!

But no! The shoe is the king’s bite, namely a piece of bread that “cleans” the dish from the rest of the succulent seasoning! It is known, even if they don’t say it, that Palermo is a city of pastafariani. My father must eat pasta once a day!

So if you sit at one of our restaurants or taverns, ask for bread and make the shoe!
