Great cheap snack bar

Don't expect anywhere to sit down but do get great Italian fast food. Interesting choices of arancines, mini pizza type things and a Sicilian speciality of meat in a sweet pastry. Definitely worth a look at if you are in Palermo, not least because it is incredibly cheap for a snack

Push your way in to this place, on a side street, and you'll get the Palermo panelle and croquettes of your dreams! Absolutely the best in "street" food, super-fresh (you sometimes have to wait for it to finish cooking) and VERY inexpensive! Friendly, efficient staff. Right near the post office.

Stumbled upon this little place down an insignificant side alley, brought to my attention by the sandwich board announcing the historic rotisserie. Lucky for us, there were just three other parties being served before us. I noticed a ticketing machine for allocating numbers, indicating just how busy this place can get. And after our small sampling of delicacies, I certainly... More

We found this "Rosticceria Antica" in a hidden courtyard by following a sign off the Via Ruggiero Settimo just a few blocks from the old city. No menu, no English, but just point to taste a selection of various Arancine (fried rice balls) and Timballi (fried pasta balls) at 0.70 Euro apiece. Food was good.

You know a place must be authentic when there are no English reviews on Trip Advisor. I went to this little hole in the wall, seeking it out because it was listed in the Rough Guide. If you want to know the Palermo version of fast food (other than a panini), this is IT. (McDonald's is around the corner as... More
