The fine dining restaurant run by Executive Chef Vito Mollica is perfect for Sunday lunch. Every Sunday from 12 noon, in fact, you can opt for the Chic Sunday menu, which also includes some items from the breakfast menu.

Teatro del Sale
Via dei Macci, 111r
ph. +39 055 2001492

The iconic and historic Brunchone returns to the Teatro del Sale. So called since time immemorial, it is a Teatro del Sale-style version of brunch, or rather a triumphant lunch. It starts with the grand buffet of vegetables, seasonal and very tasty, designed to make your mouth water. First courses are always two, classic and comforting. We then proceed with a surprise: a small sample of the day, a 'treat' that we like to serve before the main courses and which can be a meatball, a tripe salad or other typically Cibrèo specialities. Then come the real main courses, the famous roasts made on the grill and the rotisserie in the large open kitchen, a real treat. The chicken spit, bacon and sausages are great Branchone classics, as always accompanied by roast potatoes. Finally, the desserts, by now a legend: never miss the 'cialdoni con la panna', loved by all, and another typical dessert, the Cibrèo chocolate cake, which always leaves everyone speechless.
