Our Story

Story

At Vulcano Etna, we're proud to be the latest addition to Colchester's vibrant food scene. Our mission is simple: to keep the authentic taste of Sicilian cuisine alive. From mouthwatering street food and paninis to homemade pasta and pastries, every dish is a celebration of Sicilian culture. Our speciality coffee and handcrafted cocktails are perfect for any occasion, whether it's a meal with the family, drinks with friends, or a business meet-up.

Our
Menu

Our menu is a tribute to Sicily's diverse culinary heritage, influenced by the island's neighbours in North Africa and Greece. Start with our signature Arancini, savoury fried rice balls with a variety of fillings, or indulge in a classic tiramisu for dessert. And don't miss our Fiat 500 Abarth – a nod to Italy's iconic style.

Sicily's Ancient Heritage

Trinacria Trinacria, the ancient name of Sicily, meaning "three-pointed," reflects the island's unique triangular shape, marked by the stunning endpoints: Cape Peloro, Cape Passero, and Cape Lilibeo. This term not only highlights Sicily's geographical beauty but also symbolizes its rich culture and history. The name Trinacria also represents a symbol that embodies Sicily and its culture, intertwining the past with the vibrant life of present-day Sicily that we bring to our dishes at Vulcano Etna.
