According to tradition, on 13 December 1646 Saint Lucia, following the numerous prayers and pleas of the population, performed her miracle: she brought a ship loaded with grain to Palermo, putting an end to the famine that was afflicting the city. That day, the citizens immediately boiled the wheat without working it as per tradition.
Since then, every December 13th, Palermitans honor the miracle performed by Saint Lucia by eating foods that contain unprocessed cereals. This is why they opt for timbales of rice, risotto, cuccia and of course the delicious meat or butter arancini.
In keeping with this culinary tradition, La Cambusa offers another rice-based dish: Paella, in the “Mediterranean” version proposed by our chef Alfonso.

They were months of silence, of closed doors, lunches in the kitchen of the house and dinners at home.
Family moments that we certainly appreciated – for the first time, instead of wandering among the tables between an order and a receipt, we spent Christmas at home with the family, perhaps an unrepeatable event! – But they were also months of long waits, of pauses, of suspended activities, of lowered shutters that now quivered to get up again. And now, finally, here we are.
We reopen the doors, happy to welcome you back to the Cambusa, excited to return to observe conviviality, sharing, the pleasure of spending a family lunch, yes, but outdoors, the pleasure of looking around and admiring the our beautiful Palermo.
Let’s go back to that buzz of people, that noise of dishes from the kitchen, the scent of roasted fish, the dishes with a Sicilian mix of colors and that mouth watering that comes from experiencing all this.
Happy to return to the Cambusa, happy to return with you, we are waiting for you in Piazza Marina for lunch and dinner with the >NEW MENU OF THE SEASON<. See you soon!
