    About the Feast of Santa Lucia

    In the days leading up to the Feast of Santa Lucia, December 13, many Sicilians refrain from eating pasta and only eat un-ground wheat grain, or "farro," that is prepared as a dish called cuccìa. Devotees observe this ritual to remember the severe famine that struck Siracusa and Palermo in 1646. 

    During that time of Spanish domination, the faithful prayed to their patron saint, Lucia, seeking relief. Finally in May during a mass, a squawking quail flew into the duomo in Ortigia (NB, the name "Ortigia" comes from the Ancient Greek word "ortyx," which means quail.). At the same moment, a messenger entered the church announcing that ships had arrived carrying wheat grain. All hailed it a miracle, attributing the relief to Santa Lucia having answered their prayers. 

    Now, annually for her feast day in December devotees process her precious silver statue through the streets and only eat cuccìa and arancini as homage to the patron saint of eyes, sight, light, and wheat.

      We enjoy being with Vincent. Have a hard time deciding. Last time food was great and greeter was wonderful. Seating was terrible and fear full of being in a seat where 10 people have to get up to let you out.
