We walked into this restaurant by chance when we found the piazza and started walking down the side street with all of the shops. It was around 2pm, we were the only ones there with it being siesta time. The food was very good, loved the pasta. It was a great experience all around, the waiter was helpful and I... More

This is the worst meal we had in Italy (ever), really the place was dirty, the waiter was rude, the wine watered and the food awful. I had a Funghi porcini Rissoto, that was nothing but badly boiled rice and soggy mushrooms, and some very dry and thin piece of meet that tasted like cardboard. I was really pissed, because... More

This little ristorante is well worth the trip. Our group of four walked there from the port area and it took about 20 mins. We all enjoyed our food which was brought out piping hot. The service was friendly and helpful. We had the pasta of the day, I type of macaroni and cheese and fried patata anti pasta. Delicious!... More

Nice place and nice people. It's a little place located close to Via Roma; hard to find via Google Maps. Food: I ordered pasta with almond pesto; creative! But not so tasty. The chicken with citrus sauce was however quite nice.

No one recommended this place to us, we just stumbled upon it while walking night streets of Palermo. It's a small cozy place, staff is very friendly. We had different kinds of pasta there - fish and vegetable. Both tasted delicious, we had to order again :-) I also had sicilian meat rolls which were very good, just not enough... More

We ate lunch here our first full day in Palermo. The food was excellent and even though the Vucciria market isn't what it used to be, the restaurant still has the feel of an authentic hangout for the market traders. It did not feel overly touristy at all. Service was very accommodating and the price was very reasonable - EUR... More
