We ate at this place on the first night in Palermo. All the dishes ordered were OK, the stuffed octopus was probably the best.

A Sicilian gentlemen suggested my friend and I visited this restaurant; it was just lovely. Full of locals - the ground floor serves authentic Sicilian "street" food and the upper two floors are restaurants. The top floor has a fab balcony overlooking the square and the Church which is lit at night; very picturesque. Food and Prosecco very reasonably priced;... More

delicious food warm host and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend visiting this place. A little difficult to find if you are on the wrong side of the city but definitely worth it.

We heard of this restaurant from our Italian relatives and made the trip from Cefalu` to try it. The food, service and value exceeded our expectations. This restaurant offers complimentary appetizers and coffee and biscotti. The primi and secondi are expertly prepared and very authentic. This restaurant is within walking distance of the Cathedral and in an area of Palermo... More

They know exactly what they are doing here. Pasta was fresh of course with zinging sauces followed by our secondi piatti choices - fresh fish once again packed with flavour. The ingredients were first class, cooking so competent and service just right. Good value too. And full of locals with a few tourists, always a good sign - what could... More
