We were staying across the road at the Centrale Palace hotel so this was very convenient. We went there 3 or 4 times in 2 days for coffee lunch and dinner so I suppose we must have been satisfied. But that is as much about Palermo which, as exciting as it is , is not that inviting. So--if you find... More

This is in a little piazza, just near the Quatro Canti, and provided us with a good pasta lunch. Well cooked, portions not too large and lively service.

One evening I was on my own and the Primavera on the same square refused to give me a table although there was plenty of space available. So I decided to try the CArlo V. We returned three times because we enjoyed it so much and we noticed that there were other guests who returned as well. This is one... More

Highly recommended place located in a small piazza in the Old Town. Offers very good pastas, rosotto and traditional sword fish. Everything was very tasty and served with a smile. Resonable prices.

My husband and I stumbled into the piazza late at night, and enjoyed it! We had mussels, seafood penne, we had wonderful desserts, good wine, and a peaceful atmosphere.

We were directed here after a fearfully long hot train ride from Naples by our hotel. I had my doubts as this is often the concierges brother in law rather than the best pasta in town! However, very pleasantly surprised to enjoy a candlelit three course dinner with fresh and local dishes for only €50 including wine and service. Recommended.

Discovered this treasure by accident on our first day in Palermo and dined there every night of our stay! The staff is ever so welcoming and helpful; the food is outstanding and very reasonably priced; and you can dine either outside on the terrace or inside in the lovely dining room. Everything I had was amazing.
