Best service

First off it is a bright space in the gritty part of Palermo. Pietro is sinply amazing in terms of service and he speaks perfect English with a great life story to boot! Ask him how he learned English. The arancino is among the best we tried. Great place for first timers to Palermo

Try the rice balls, pasta and white wine!! Yummmmmmmy! <3 The server was honest about the food he was serving, it was obvious he wasn't trying to sell us just anything. He made genuine conversation and suggested us a great wine.

We went into this restaurant to get Arancini, but they were kinda disappointing. I felt they were not that fresh. We had aperitivo, too, but the food was not fresh either. Food was cold and didn't look tasty. Aperitivo is like buffet when we ordered any drink with 5 euros, but we should not have had it. Server was very... More

A gem for atmosphere and great selection for a light lunch, afternoon tea, or aperitivi. In need of a cup of tea, yes, in Italy! we asked. They initially brought out water not boiling, with hot milk, and only 1 English Breakfast teabag, not 2 as asked. However, the older gentleman waiter could not have been more polite and eager...

Bar Touring have a few locations in Palermo, one of the best being near Mondello Beach. They are famous for tarditional 'hearty' Sicilian food, but anyone who's local knows that the giant arancine (known as Bomba, because they hit your stomach like a bomb!). If you haven't tried them before, they are huge balls of rice, with a filling of... More

Wonderful arancine - try one con carne. Also great Cannoli. They make a great caffe macchiato. Very worth taking the time to stop and enjoying a Sicilian treat.

A great little bar, near to the sea. It opens at 4am! So if you are still out after a late night, or fancy grabbing breakfast to eat while watching the sunrise over the ocean, it is fantastic. Not much space inside so you have to take your food away... not a big problem - there is a park nearby... More
