What a hidden gem of great, quality, reasonable priced Sicilian food. Last had dinner here 12 years ago and quality of food has not changed. HIGHLY recommended for dinner, you will not be disappointed. Great wine selection and tasty dishes.

Let me fist state that we did not eat particularly poorly here. We were warmly received by maitre Manuele and the ambiance is charming and relaxing. Perhaps, our expectations were on the high side given the recommendations we received but we were definitely not taken away by their revisitation of traditional Sicilian cuisine. Given that prices are on the high... More

Food is fantastic... papardelle with sea food..superb taste; Raw marinated prawns woith brown sugar...may sound strange but really good; Tuna tartare...delicious. Unfortunately the decor (in a basements) does not accompany the food. Overall very good.

One of the best meals in Palermo. Had veal in a plastic bag...so tender. My husband had horsemeat, marinated and so tender and juicy. Out dessert was pistachio ice cream...to die for.

This restaurant was our highlight in Palermo on the dining front. We were initially a bit taken aback by the fact that you need to ring the bell outside to get in and that you are seated in the basement but the environment is very nice, well decorated without being overwhelming and the service is impeccable. The menu is not... More

We arrived there on occasion due to neighbour restaurant where we booked a table suddenly decided not to work that night. Pretty light place in the basement. It's definitely elegant place in spite of its size. Intersting drawings on the walls. Attentive staff (though I insistently recommend check details vs. total of your bills). Good selection of wines though some... More

Food was not that good and service was bad. However, a definite local upscale spot. We were the only two seated for dinner but by the time we had eaten, the locals were coming in.

My husband and I were on the last night of our weeklong trip in Sicily, heading for Rome the next day, and I am so glad that this was our last meal in Sicily. Once we saw the plates being served to guests sitting around us, we knew that this was the meal we would splurge on (oh yes, ALL... More
