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

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.

It was recommended by Sergio at Khalisah B&B, very close to it. I sat on the terrace and the locals started coming in... I saw that as a good sign. Food was very good and fairly priced, so was the wine. Service was friendly and efficient! Would eat there again

This restaurant typifies much of Palermo, the food is poor to terrible and the service matches it. My pasta dish was so bad it was not possible to eat it. I had to change my water glas 3 times to find a clean one. We had to change our cutlery to get knives that were not bent. The Pizza chef... More

Stumbled across this place one evening. Definately were intrigued by the Inquisition Styled Entry manequin. Had the mixed bruschetta appetizer, great flavors we both enjoyed. Pizzas as main course were delicious, perfectly cooked and very flavorful.
