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

Don't be fooled by the homey name, since this in not a cucina at all. It is a psudo fancy place with lovely architectural arches and fair food. To begin with, I was longing for pasta con sarde. What I got was a small plate with boney sardines and not much flavor. I kept the receipt. And it reads: The... More

Excellent food and atmosphere but not that expensive considering the high prices of palermo. Great wine list and cheaper if you buy a bottle overall than buy just a glass. Reminds me of a home cooked more meal. A 4 course meal with a bottle wine was about 70 euros for a couple. Weekend make reservations and the menu comes... More

We had a great (mostly seafood) dinner here on our second night in Palermo. Before we started our meal, the very helpful and friendly woman brought over a plate to show us the the fresh catch of the day, which included cod, prawns, swordfish, squid, baby anchovies, and red mullet. This was crucial in our decision making amongst the many... More

We ordered spaghetti al Nero seppie, and it tasted like usual. Nothing special. The antipasto was a lot. Vegetable was cold. But it has great atmosphere and very friendly staffs. Yet the price is q bit high, €12-15 for primo piatto

We had a wonderful meal in this restaurant a few weeks ago. Very beautiful inside - in fact one of the nicest looking restaurants on our 3 week Sicilian trip! The pictures posted don't do it justice and I'll try and post a couple of my own. Wait staff was great and when I had asked the owner what she... More
