Delicious food, very close to the city center

We visited this restaurant because it was a great location in the center, at the beginning of Via Liberta. You must Go down the stairs down, which will not be convenient for some people or prams. But the restaurant is nice. We tried pizza, veal meat (knuckle) and Caprese salad. Mozzarella was... read more

We found this place our first full day in Palermo - we had arrived the night before and basically gone straight to bed, but this was our first time really braving the city. We really enjoyed ourselves here! The outside is unassuming, but once you are led down the stairs into the main eating area, it's warm and cozy. We... More

We had arrived late in Palermo due to a delay at airport and having trouble finding our digs were forced to search town for eateries. We stumbled across this place and because it looked so welcoming from outside we entered and although in a basement was warm presentable and well laid out. Well to cut a long story short the...

My wife and I stumbled onto this restaurant the first night we arrived in Palermo and we were so happy we did. The servers were fantastic and the food was just as good. We met up with our cousins from the USA and they enjoyed it so much that we had dinner there three times during our visit. Highly recommend... More

This place seems like a chain. But we were there on Easter Sunday and after walking for an hour past closed ristorante after closed ristorante, we found ourselves here. Truly the pizza was good, just not exceptional. They seem to think they have a great beer selection, and just like Gordon Biersch back home, it's mostly average beer just a... More
