A Quality Restaurant you can Trust

The food and service was very good. Excellent assortment of dishes at medium pricing. Very nice ambiance, good service etc. This is not a bar, but a quality neighborhood restaurant that you can comfortably try. It is also a place used by some travel companies for small (16) groups.

Dined there tonight. Lovely varied menu with good choices. We shared a special starter and there was plenty. The mains were also delicate beautifully presented and delicious. I was tempted by the lemon desert and that was melt in the mouth

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
