What a pleasure this evening turned out to be. We were assigned this restaurant by our tour company and we were so glad after the first bite. In November we did not take advantage of the huge outside seating area although others did. Inside was a comfortably elegant rear dining room that is a great mix of old and new.... More

Your visit to Palermo would not be the same without visiting here. A perfect setting and so welcomed by the staff who were friendly & polite. The food was extremely reasonable for the quality and menu had many choices - great for our return visits!

The restaurant was very near our hotel. The first course of eggplant parmigiana was cold ( did they mean it to be that way?) and my risotto was more raw than al dente. I also did not get my coffee the service was so poor. Finally they left in riff raff. The flower vendor was a bothered, difficult to send... More

Nice outdoor seating in quiet square. Interior gorgeous! Good wine, creative menu and presentations starting with the tableware and menu. Seemingly quite popular. I recommend.
