Default European Resturant Food prices (was Sicily travelogue)

Also bars there often have an extremely good selection of pastries. In
Palermo there was a bar advertising "sicilian and swiss pastry" ... you
know the saying "Hell is Palermo without pastry shops (D.Maraini The
Long Life of Marianna Ucria)". Concerning "cannoli" one has to be
careful, according to the locals. The true filling should be made with
ricotta (sort of cottage cheese), and therefore one should eat cannoli
only in the fresh season, and possibly ask to have them filled at the
moment.


Couldn't find one that didn't have it in a refridgerated case.

Could the difficulties to find (affordable) restaurants have been an
effect of the season during Christmas and New Year, when "things" are
not operating normally?


That could indeed have played a role. We were there over Xmas and New
year and there was a dearth of affordable places. Perhaps in summer,
during the tourist season, more places are open.


They will probably charge more in summer.


IME of restaurants in tourist spots in Italy, they post the "tourist" prices
at all times and unofficially give the locals a discount during slack
periods
