Traditional Sicilian Food

If you are looking for traditional homemade cooked food, go to De Palo's. Italian mother is cooking ! Informal setting, not overpriced.

De Palos is a gem buried in an old enchanting alley way just off busy Fleet st. The owner couldn't any more welcoming, friendly and helpful. His food is rustic, extremely tasty and very filling!

We tried this restaurant out tonight and were very disappointed. At £15 plus service for a bowl of pasta you're not expecting a small portion, especially in place that seems ordinary. The food tasted fine but the portions were tiny. In addition, when offered mineral water we asked for 1 bottle of each, when the bill arrived we had to... More

The food we had was very good but not sure I would keep coming back to restaurant as there was a limited choice of starters and main in course and all were pasta of some form or other.... all very nice but nothing other than pasta. If the restaurant was to expand its menu I would give it 5 stars... More

Possibly the nicest lunch I've had this year - the tagliatelle di castagne con ragu di selvaggina was superb and the service was perfect.

Found this tucked away down a little alleyway and so glad we did. Welcoming friendly atmosphere and delicious but unpretentious food, very reasonable priced.
