Like in Sicily, crossroads of cultures, we have drawn from three different languages. How else to define a sophisticated signature cuisine without frills, yet infinitely good and accessible to all?

Cipolla’s home, in Taormina

A good Island. In the heart of Taormina, a few steps from the Duomo Cathedral, in the ancient and charming home Cipolla. In a historic palace of the late fifteenth century, with two large Roman cisterns (hence the name, in greek), “Kiste” is a place where to find a selection of the best Sicilian flavors to be enjoyed inside or outside the restaurant or eat at home , thanks to the proposal of brand products “IO Pietro D’Agostino“.

Haute Cuisine for everyone,
every day

Pietro D’Agostino is the head chef of La Capinera, one michelin starred restaurant and a well renewed place for a great culinary experience in the Bay of Taormina.
With his team, with his partner Morena and the sisters Cinzia and Giorgia, he created Kisté: same quality and the same attention to the selection of raw materials, in a more relaxed and informal environment. At lunch or dinner, you will easily enjoy the uniqueness of this culinary philosophy.

Reserve your table

Scents, textures, flavors? A picture could tease the sight, but the great value of a dish is deeply kept in the emotions of the palate . And there is no other possibility: it is an experience.

I am Pietro D’Agostino.
I am a chef.
I am curious and, every day, I search for good ingredients that could enhance my recipes.
I have the pleasure to share with you the excellence of some products, which are the essence of taste and quality of my island, Sicily.

IO, Pietro D’Agostino is the product-line representing my world; it is the entity of the work done together with passionate producers who, like me, daily express their love for the island and for its beautiful and unique products. I will reveal them to you as you can taste, enjoy and bring them to your table.
