This restaurant is tucked away next to a busy road on the west side of town, a walk for us, but due to the many good reviews we thought it would be worth it. So we were a little disappointed. The menu has a nice romantic account of the history of the place and area, and the restaurant is vibrant... More

We went here on our last night in Palermo after seeing it reviewed by lots of other people on Trip advisor and were not disappointed. Starters on the house, delicious main courses and desert, complimentary, home baked biscuits which we were too full to eat so we took them home! The staff were lovely, helpful and friendly. Very well priced,... More

I was in this restaurant for a lunch. They have short menu but everything is incredible. Not so expensive. On the negative side we waited long time - over 45 minutes for food.

I was at the restaurant with my parents during our trip around Sicily. We were looking for real tasty sicilian food and we found it. Short menu with enough dishes to be able to easily decide and a really good price.

Returning to Palermo for the first time in years, this is the best restaurant I have ever been to here. Fresh, tasty dishes, excellent meat, fish and pasta (even gluten-free). It is not the best area in Palermo but it is not far from the cathedral and absolutely worth it. Owner and waiters are nice and it is inexpensive. I... More

Lovely place about 20 minutes walk from our hotel in the old quarter. The food was really nice - loved the pasta and the pastries. The wine selection is good as well. And of course the service was attentive and pleasant. Try it!

Tired and hot after visiting Capella Palatina, to find this non-touristy-sounding trattoria on our tripadvisor app, not too far away, was a gift! On arrival I wasn't disappointed - the owner was so friendly, the restaurant with its check tablecloths was charming with a local feel and the food was fab. We went for the mixed started - which was... More

Even though when staying in Sically for a week we stated an hour trip away from Palermo we had to come back after having eaten here one day! The food is super delish! So tasty, so fresh and really authentic. Many locals eat here. Great wine and dolce:) But that's not all;) the atmosphere of this place and also the... More

We hadn't booked and were lucky to get a table as it was buzzing with locals and tourists alike. We ordered, but somehow the anti pasti kept coming ... aubergine balls in tomato sauce, veal with tomatoes and olives, fried vegetables and some croquettes and panelle. Just had room for our main courses of swordfish in broth with olives and... More

It was not easy to find the restaurant, but it was worth the while. The food was really good. I would suggest that you ask for 'assaggini' which means that they make you taste all their starters. Their pasta with pesto and sea food (prawns) or their stuffed squid are exquisite. 44 euro for two people for starter, main course... More
