Decent Food, but Slow Service

We visited on our first night in Palermo and it was busy. It was also raining so we decided to take a table indoors. It was hot inside and not particularly comfortable. We had to wait a long time for our menus to be given to us and our orders taken. The service of the actual food was better. The... read more

We chanced upon the restaurant as the preferred one was booked out. It was only a short walk from our intended destination and whilst it looked like a tourist trap , the volume of local people intimated this may not be that bad. So it proved. The seating outside had a great atmosphere , over looking the park and the... More

We were part of a tour group that had dinner here one night. We were supposed to eat inside but because it was so nice out our guide asked them to seat us outside which they scurried to do. We had a good experience with them although it did take awhile for us to get our food...the food was wonderful,... More

A friend recomended this restaurant. It was a big portion, like in middle age, tipical Sicilian starter and pork. I loved the taste.

The food is mediocre, which means quite bad for Sicilian standards. The setting is lovely on a square, the terrace with fans that spray damp for cooling. The inside is beautiful as well. Passing is at dinner time again, I saw the prettiest tout ever trying to lure us in. Not necessarily a good sign.

No waiters service, we waited hours and hours to sit, and then hours and hours to eat. The food wasn't good at all, the prices are very expensive considering the quality and the way the food its served. Too many people and a small and rude staff. We will never come again in this place!!!!

Fantastic restaurant near to our hotel. At first glance looked like a touristy place but it wasn't at all. We were the only English in there and it was full. Great food, friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Best pizzas we had during our stay! Recommended!

Tooooooo much long before getting pasta. We waited one hour between the antipasti and pastas. Kids were desperate and so was I. Food was average and il conto too high for that quality.

We went for Sunday lunch here after visiting the nearby art museum. We chose it mainly for the chance to eat outside on a beautiful day and we liked the looks of the patio, which overlooks the greenery of the Piazza Marina. The food is just average, but if you order simply you will probably enjoy it. We started with... More

Strayed to this place and glad we did. Good basic pizzas, fish, etc, but executed very well. Best pizza I had in Palermo! Hubby has swordfish and it was very moreish! Situated in a lovely piazza. Recommended.
