Visited on Sunday last week for a celebratory lunch. The whole experience was brilliant. The maître d was fantastic from start to finish. Food was all delicious and I urge you to try the tortellini with porcini. Full of locals so it must be the place to eat Will go again when next in Palermo

This felt like one of Palermo's slightly more formal restaurants and the other diners were mostly Sicilians who seemed to be regulars. The waiter was welcoming and efficient. Lovely menu and really delicious Sicilian wine which was not expensive. Would recommend this place and would definitely return.

You'll get a very warm greeting at this small, cheery, excellent restaurant. The food is wonderful, and I loved the fairly-priced bottle of Sicilian white that we drank with our great seafood pastas.

Conservative but cosmopolitan, this is a European restaurant serving Sicilian food. The staff are very professional, which was hard for us to get used to having a different experience in other restaurants. English is not really spoken here, and there's poor cellular reception in the restaurant so Google Translate was of no use. No vegetarian dishes - so don't go... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and did not disappoint. The food was excellent, particularly the pasta. Wine was reasonably priced and of excellent quality. It was so good we ate here two nights in a row. Fabulous! Great service too.

Having read the previous reviews, we opted for this restaurant with some trepidation. We arrived at 8pm and found the restaurant deserted, except for one diner. The maître d'' produced the menu and the carta dei vino, which is extensive and indeed includes a map showing the geographical location of the island's main producers. As noted by earlier reviewers, despite... More

Staff is very attentive. They searched hard to find the bottle of wine that we requested. The lamb was delicious. The interior had nice artwork. The fish, as expected, was great. Don't miss this one for a special night out. Dress up!

My husband and I had dinner there at our last night in Palermo. We ordered a pasta with porcini mushrooms recommended by the maitre d' and my husband had the steak with vegetables cooked in transparent foil, while I had the delicious swordfish fillet coated in nuts with truffle and rosemary sauce. Everything was exquisite, and the service was extremely... More

Impressed by reviews, four of us made reservations for dinner. Perhaps it was an "off night". but each of our party were very disappointed in just about every category. First, let me say that the atmosphere was very nice. However, that's where it ends. Thinking back, between the maitre d and the waiter, they spoke about four sentences all evening.... More

We chose this restaurant close to our hotel for a belated anniversary celebration and were delighted apart from one thing. We ate marinated prawns, a specialty, which is an acquired taste... Pasta followed and then baked sea bream which was delicious. We left the choice of wine to the maitre d and felt his choice was biased to its (high)... More
