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

The place seems to be average but we decide to stay because there were no alternative restaurants. Food average, not expensive, staff don't speak English and ignoring clients. In the end we're very surprised that we had to pay table cloth fee, twice! It was 25% of the total cost. No come back there.

We went there on Sunday for lunch. It was the typical place for tourists.... So nothing really special. The staff was not really friendly, but polite. Food in the average.

Stay away from this restaurant at all costs. The service and food was terrible, the waiters were so rude, either ignoring you or being surly when serving you. As in a previous review, most other tables were served before ours, I don't know if they were locals but as this restaurant is recommended in travel guides they should be used... More
