4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

We were looking for something simple, local and fun and we found it. The food is traditional sicilian served with a little flair from the owner and his son. (I think we're their new American friends) It's a fun, little local place. If you dine later, you'll be dining with the locals...do as the locals do and you'll be fine.... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant because the year that it was established was our birth year. Very random. As it turned out, we had a wonderful experience at the restaurant after a challenging afternoon of driving. We chose a table outside and the staff immediately took care of us and continued to be attentive throughout our dinner. We... More

Sardines, mozzarella with tomatoes for starters followed by a plate of mixed grill fish. Pasta with mussels and one swordfish . Four of us in total.... More

You can taste typical food everywhere, but not there. Bad quality and prices so high! You can eat something better everywhere, believe me, but not there. Enjoy, visitors, go elsewhere!

We came to this restaurant on the suggestion of the hotel receptionist (not always the best person to ask, but we were tired and didn't want to go too far). We sat at a table outside which was very pleasant, until the intrusion of street accordion players in search of a few euros. It was clearly a tourist destination as... More

We are not Italian speakers so choose to order our starters blind - I got an amazing egg plant dish stuffed with ham and cheese, so delicious, my partner had chick pea chips which he thought needed a sauce. For mains I had very average gnocci, he had... More

We ate here by default because it was Easter Monday and many restaurants were closed. This is a typical tourist trap restaurant. The food was mediocre at best. The rolls were horrible. After dinner I went to the ladies room and walked by a delicious looking sesame semolina bread that was on a cutting board. I asked the owner why... More

We had dinner at Al Cancelletto Verde after a long day of exploring Palermo and Cefalu. Our hotel was kind enough to call ahead and make reservations for us! After a short walk from the hotel, we found our way. It was lovely! They have outdoor seating, but we sat inside. The service was excellent and the food was divine!... More
