Good place for lunch on a quiet day

Liked it rwas away from the traffic and main road. Very clean and food well cooked and fresh. Deserts brought out to view on a tray to see. Did not appreciate waiter looking at his mobile while taking my order and told him so. Other waiters very good.

Stopped by for a quick dinner, shared a couple of things between two, paid 10 euro and were extremely full when we left. Amazing food and great value! Was a really cool setting as well and a place were more locals go.

Delightful setting sets the scene here. Obviously a favourite with families because of the indoor or outdoor setting. Food is cooked in the main building and walked across the square to the outside tables. Fish particularly was wonderfully fresh and the salads really delicious. The grilled swordfish was perfect. We ate it many times during our month in Sicily but... More

Amazing sandwiches of Milza - to die for! Street food of Palermo in a lovely setting facing a lovely church - great setting. Everything- arancini, focaccia, fried fish wow. BUT the Milza with cheese just is without compare!

Our 1st meal in Sicily and recommended by our hotel for a great late day snack. The place was quiet as it was late afternoon. We shared arancini, caponata, panelle and rolled sardines. Then finished our lunch with a delicious cannoli. This place did not disappoint! Located on a small square opposite a church, this was the perfect experience.

This was probably the best meal we had in Palermo. We shared some of the mixed plates of seafood and vegetable dishes, and everything was delicious. It looked like almost everyone else there had the panini con la milza which smelled delicious. The decor is really cute and much nicer than expected considering how cheap and casual the place is.

We've heard about this place from a colleague and were looking forward to a visit. Unfortunately, the visit was not pleasant. We were greeted by impolite waiter, who did not smile at least once, he threw the menus for us and just walked away. For the beginning, we ordered Arancina and antipasti plate. Arancina was ok, but cold in the... More

Palermitan street food, served with some extra care. Try panini con la milza for an awesome experience ! You can get away with about 10-15€ ...
