Excellent fish, and excellent company!

As an American living in Palermo, my husband and I (who are both serious foodies) make it a point to check out the local “ristoranti” near by. Well, happy to say (in addition to my first review) we have found a second wonderful restaurant called Ristorantino Palazzo Sambuca. If you want fresh... read more

Had dinner here this evening. Husband had the fish and eggplant appetizer which was good and the pasta with shrimp and tomatoes which he enjoyed. For an appetizer I had the shrimp ceviche which I did not like (but if you enjoy raw shrimp you may like this.) I then had the red wine risotto which I did not enjoy... More

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel and it lived up to every word. The service was professional but friendly and the food was just beautiful both to look at and to eat. Will most certainly try and return.

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk. It was a little bit hard to find but after consulting our map we got there. Staff was friendly and helpful. The food was good, maybe a touch inventive. Nice wine selection. The price was reasonable. We will go back.

We had the great pleasure to dine once again at this fine restaurant almost a year later, and are as impressed and enthused about this place as we were before. Although the restaurant was filled almost to the last seat, we were given the personal, special attention by the staff that makes a dining experience memorable along with the first-rate... More

It was a highlight of our recent trip to dine at this fine restaurant in the old part of Palermo.The atmosphere is intimate, the fish dishes exquisite in presentation and taste, the wine list extensive, and the price in line with the quality of the culinary experience. It is worth mentioning that the service is exceptional: the owner and staff... More

We cannot say enough good things about this special restaurant! We had been staying in Palermo for weeks and had walked by Ristoratino Palazzo Sambuca several times before deciding to make a special evening of dining there. Were we glad we did! What a fabulous place, and the food was to die for! This is a well-run family enterprise, where... More

One night my friend and I had done extensive sight-seeing in Palermo and were very tired at the end of the day. We left the hotel quite late and wandered around on Via Buttera and Via Alloro. We walked by Palazzo Sambuca and decided not to go in because it was so late and only one party was dining. After... More

Our group of 5 were treated like royalty, perhaps it was the owner who went around and chatted with guests and gave recommendations, which all turned out to be great. Tasteful, modern decor in a relatively small space, but the kitchen turned out delicious, beautifully presented appetizers, pastas, and seafood. A little on the pricier side, but well worth it....

We met the owner when he kindly helped us find our B&B up the road and ate here on our last night in Palermo. Food and wine were both excellent, beautifully presented and very tasty. Potato cake with swordfish starter was very good. Main course bass (a whole one each!) was really fresh and delicious. We did not have desert... More
