The restaurant is located in a suburb of Palermo. The ambiente is modern, welcoming and pleasant. Excellent menu, wine, and service. Food: Very fish-prone, but even when you are not a complete fish affecionado, here it is worth to try, presented on a supreme level of subtlety. We had the 9 course menu for 85€/person. The food is a modern... More

In a suburb of Palermo, this modern restaurant has a well- deserved Michelin star and is well on his way to a second one. The chef cooks updated classics with live of local ingredients. I told them I loved sea urchins: I got "bonbons" of sepia with sea urchin ice cream and yes it is delicious. Then black pasta with... More

Ok, usually Michelin does not throw its famous stars at average eateries, but, really, me and my family were simply astonished by our eating experience at this very small but very elegant restaurant in Bagheria (a town some 20 km from Palermo's center). The Missus wanted to celebrate her first half century and wanted something special, so we followed advise... More

I dropped in to this place on a Saturday afternoon and tried the 3 course degustation. I was well advised on the wines by the friendly waitress, and the food was exceptional; even the selection of 8 organic breads to accompany the meal was stupefying.

This place was exciting to get to! A longish taxi ride from Palermo, about 25 minutes but it was well worth the effort. We wanted to try a Michelin restaurant in the Palermo area and we decided to go to this one. It was an elegant all white modern Italian interior with modern Sicilian cooking created by a wonderful chef.... More

I was on a business/pleasure tour in Sicily to discover the amazing local farmers, and while in Bagheria, visiting one of the major organic orange and vegetable Company, I was taken to I Pupi for a "business lunch" ( 3.5 hrs...). Well guys, there's not much to see in Bagheria, apart from incredible seaside, great cannoli, etc.. but believe me,... More

We ordered the seven course, 60 euro tasting menu for a special occasion, and got an education in local traditions and ingredients along with our meal. After an introductory Prosecco, the chef started us off with six precious bites of local raw seafood, each accompanied by a small spoonful of olive oil. Each oil had a different flavor - lemon,...
