Good food, terrible service

We found Carlo V on the way back home and decided to get diner as the restaurant was nice and well located. We waited 20 min until we called someone to take our order. Then after the antipasti, we again had to wait a while before getting our diner. Meanwhile, many people who came after us had time... read more

My fresh orange juice was mixed with water. When I mentioned this to the waiter they (staff) all started to shout to each other.

Well I have been to this restaurant three time, but what made me give it 1 star was the last visit, I was very disappointed. The first two times the food was good and the waiter lovely, they were both dinner meal. The third time we went for lunch, well that was a disaster. The starter was cold and tasted... More

Palerimo Carlo 5 Set facing into the Piazza Bologni the ambiance in side is set by the smooth arched ceilings and walls against the rawness of the ancient blocks. We had the seafood antipasto for starters and should have stopped there. It was a meal for two. But if you're not into raw - forget it - otherwise 4/5. Fritta... More

Ordered risotto and grilled fish, it was one of the best dishes of the kind we ate. Great place, but we came during a quiet time so had no issues like some other reviewers here

We ate outside one evening in April. When the main course eventually arrived it was cold and missing the side orders. When challenged the waitress asserted the vegetables had finished - it was only 8.30pm and other customers were arriving. Avoid.

Went there for lunch twice during our short visit. We ate outside once (a bit too cold, to be honest) and inside on our second visit. Both meals were good and the service was decent. The waiters were cheerful and the bill was very reasonable.

We sat inside (it's November!). The decor is a combo of the old stone work and clean white plaster (lighting a little on the low side). They brought us glasses of Proseco (sp?) before we even ordered. The food was really good; they don't rush you--you need to ask for the bill. They brought us digestif shots after dinner too....

We had lunch here on our second day in Palermo. The food (Risotto) was very good, the prices very reasonable and the staff were quite friendly, if a little stressed (it was full). This was just what we were looking for between the sight seeing. A good experience. The next day we were not very hungry at lunch time so... More
