Conveniently located opposite Banyo train station on Royal Parade, Putia (a little shop selling food and wine in Sicily) is licensed and open for breakfast and lunch from Wednesday through Sunday. With a focus on fresh, whole foods and locally sourced ingredients, the menu is seasonal with plenty of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.
