Quick, attentive service in an excellent location(even if the piazza was undergoing something of a makeover this summer). The food was great - reasonably priced, tasty and authentic. Recommended.

I have an attachment to this place because I came here on my first visit to Palermo and so I come each subsequent visit. The piazza is lovely and the pizza is great. I haven't had other dishes so can't comment on those but I think the pizza is their main specialty. As other reviewers have noted, the waiters can... More

To some up our experience up - we would recommend looking for another restaurant to eat at. Staff were rude - throwing chairs and menus around, slamming doors and complaining to each other after taking clients orders or taking the plates away. We waited approx 40 mins for some bruschetta, once seeing 2 other tables receive their entree and main... More

Great value for money here in beautiful historic surroundings! For starters, we shared a frittura mista di pesce (mixed deep fried fish), and continued with the linguine all'astice (pasta with lobster) accompanied by the great local white wine Cusumano Alcamo. Enjoy!

The outdoor tables of this eatery, which seems to attract many foreign tourists, provide an excellent place to watch the world passing by. Service was good, as was the food. Although, the pizza I ate on one occasion was not as good as that which I ate nearby in Dal Biondino, the food was more than acceptable. Any defects in... More

We stopped for lunch on a recent visit to Palermo. We basically seated ourselves at an outdoor table and the waiter eventually brought a menu and offered to take our drink order. The pizza was slightly better than the pasta but nothing was special. We had an octopus appetizer and the sauce tasted like a mix of ketchup and tomato... More

We spent two weeks in Sicily traveling around the island. Of all the restaurants we had the pleasure to eat during our trip, Bellini in Palermo was by far the worst. It is sort of understandable, that we as tourists didn't get as good service as the locals. When our italian skills were poor and the english of the staff... More

We arrived early at La Mortarano/Church of Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio or San Nicolò dei Greci, overlooking the Piazza Bellini, while the church was closed for lunch. We opted for a drink of water and half a pizza until the church opened. The water arrived, the pizza halves were plonked down in front of us. We asked for the bill, which... More

After a super long day of travelling and getting day our bearings in Palermo, what better way to start our holiday.than with a good italian pizza! We decided upon this busy looking restaurant in the lovely Piazza Bellini. It was a lovely warm evening so we were shown to an outdoor table and given menus. We ordered a couple of... More
