Sicilian Perfection

We started off with traditional Sicilian Fare of Swordfish Carpaccio, Zuppa of Favre Beans, Peas, Carciofi and faggioli,with litre of Local Vino Rossi. Dinner she had Swordfish and Baby Squid involtini and tagglietta (Veal) Parmesan and Grilled Vegetables. Meal was orgasmic.

This restaurant is beautifully decorated. The food was absolutely delicious. I had a prawn dish that made me feel hmmmmmmmmm! My only gripe is I would have wanted one more prawn (that is 5 instead of the 4 they serve) to feel totally satiated. However, still highly recommended.

This is a great place to try out Sicilian food, there was nothing we didn't like. Combine this with great service, lovely atmosphere and decor and you have a great restaurant.

Recommended by foodie friends who had recently eaten here, we had a splendid meal. The room is lovely and the service excellent. All the dishes but one were outstanding: hence 4 stars rather than 5.

The thing about restaurants in Palermo are such: the doors are looked...you have to ring the bell. We first thought that they were closed and then rang the bell. Atmosphere was really nice and the food excellent especially the swordfish carpacio, carpanata was beautiful the risotto with orange and shrimp as well a the lemon mousse.

There were 11 of us, some returning for a second time in a week. Don't know but seems to be run more as a family owned and operated than a corporate restaurant. That said, décor was upscale and modern, tables were nicely separated for privacy, and the staff never seemed to pressure us but were there when we needed them.... More

We were staying in a hotel round the corner and had received a recommendation from the front desk about this place. Wish we hadn't wasted our money. We arrive at around 8 and the door was locked,we assumed it was closed and walked away but someone came and shouted us in, we figure this must just be a precaution. Noticing... More

After reading all the reviews we decided to go to Papoff. Well I have to be honest here it was very average. First of all there was NO fresh Pasta. It was all from the supermarket and not fresh. There was also a huge delay on delivery of food and our Salads did not arrive at the table until we... More
