Bar, so-named after the immortal heroine in A.D.Lamartines novel, is
an essential stopping off place, for anyone who visits the little picturesque port of
Marina Corricella, where many scenes from big screen movies have been filmed.
The bars owner, Vincenzo Piro,
(an extra in many of films, including Francesca and Nunziata, with Sofia
Loren) makes a superb Grattata di limone, a typical crushed-ice drink famous
for generations, whilst he recounts his cinematographic experiences. Sitting at the tables
directly at the bars entrance, clients can try many of the bars specialities.
Le piadine (flatbread sandwiches) are
another delicacy created at Graziellas. Mozzarella doc, proscuitto and
rucola, proscuitto cotto, wurtsel meat and potatoes, sausages, friariella
peppers, aubergine and mozzarella, are just some of the fillings. Also worth trying are
the bruschetta with tomato, mozzarella and rucola, tuna, aubergine and
peppers. The Graziella Bar is also a Pizzeria, serving traditional wood-oven cooked
pizzas, and pasta dishes. Typical dishes include: spaghetti with sea-fruits,
Sicilian penne, or spaghetti with mussels.
Inside the bar, which has been fashioned out of an
old fishermans building, visitors can admire the many photos of Vincenzo with al the
VIPs who have passed through the bar.
How to reach Graziella's Bar:The bar is situated on the Corricella Port, at the end of the steps which form the Via San Rocco, which lead down to the Port from Piazza dei Martiri.
