Named for the fragrant orange blossom that scents the estate, Zagara restaurant is a unique expression of place, with a menu that revels in the flavours and ingredients of the Mediterranean, from the local catch of the day, served with homegrown braised fennel and citrus, to "Spaghettoni" with shrimp from Sciacca, zucchini leaves, and lemon.

With a glamorous dining room and an atmospheric outdoor terrace that offers views out towards the sea, Zagara combines elegant design and the natural beauty of Verdura to stunning effect.

Fulvio Pierangelini - Director of Food

"The simpler the food, the more we have to pay attention because margins of error increase. Simplicity in the kitchen is an arrival point not a starting one. You need courage for simple cooking."Celebrity Chef Fulvio Pierangelini has 25 years of experience. His simple yet refined approach brings distinctive flair to classic Italian dishes.

Nando Papa - Sommelier

Originally from Caserta, Sommelier Nando Papa began his career in Monte Carlo. His professionalism and passion for vino buono saw him runner-up in the wine industry’s version of the Oscars in the year 2000 and honoured with the title of "Chevalier" of the Ordre des Coteaux De Champagne in 2018.

Emanuele Riccobono - Head Chef

Born and raised in Sicily, Emanuele Riccobono’s passion for Italian cuisine emerged when he was young, when he learnt secret local recipes from his father and grandmother.  

After completing his diploma, Emanuele started his career in luxury hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants in Sardinia, Venice, Berlin, Prague and elsewhere in Europe. This approach allowed him to learn new techniques and work with ingredients grown around the world. 

In 2009 Emanuele decided to return to his homeland and join the Verdura Resort team upon opening. Today, his love for Sicily and respect for local produce and raw ingredients shine through in our menus.
