Maybe a bit touristy, though there were plenty of locals, but who wants to sit indoors in a restaurant on a beautiful summer's evening? Good choice of food, good service, owner present, be generous to the entertainers!

We ended up here by chance since we loved its location al fresco in a beautiful Barouque square. Every dish was perfect: quality, presentation and service. My partner cried when he ate the cannolo since it was the best he ever ate. For its quality I found the prices very reasonable. Highly recommended

This restaurant is located in a small piazza just off the via Victor Emanuelle which is one of the main shopping districts in Palermo. This was our first meal in Palermo having just arrived. I had a risotto dish and it was delicious. It had a white cream sauce and small pieces of prosciutto. It was not expensive and the... More

Aftwr walking around a for a while I came across this place. The menu seemed big enough that I would be able to find something good and the prices seemed not too high. The food was so delicious and the service was amazing. So glad I stopped here and highly recommend :)

We choose wine - Nero Davola, but when we tasted it we understood that it was simple Wine del la casa, not Nero Davola. Also we choose risotto, but found... More

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 to eat... More
