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

Dropped in just after noon on a Saturday. They open at 11 but we were the first ones there. Placed our orders. Waitress came back and said they didn't have my wife's choice. Okay, she chose something else. A few minutes later, I'm told that they can't do penne al Sicilia (with nuts and cheese - how can you not... More

Which is a shame because the food was well cooked and good value and the restaurant is in a nice square. The problem was that we had to ask for every bit of service that we needed (get a menu, place an order, ask 3 times for a glass of wine, the bill etc.). I could see that it was... More

We went there to have a good coffee, but boths the macchiato and the cappuccino were disappointing. No glass of water served with drinks

Right up the street from our hotel, The Centrale Palace, it was a nice stop for lunch. Recommended by several people, the food was good, the wine was good and the service was good. The place was packed at lunch while other cafes around us were only half full. Many locals there as well. Good choice for a nice leisurely... More

We sat and ordered drinks whilst perusing the menu. The waitress seemed to be very helpful but that was our mistake. We started with salads which were tired. My secondi a carbonara arrived but nothing for my wife. After a short wait, an enquiry as to the whereabouts of her grilled fish was answered that she had not ordered. Yes... More

First of all it took them 5 minutes after seating us to give us menus and then after finishing deciding ten minutes to take our order, should have left then! An hour later our food arrived my partner had grilled sausage there was nothing to it and it was cold, I ordered spaghetti with mussels clams and shrimps however there... More

Went here with my family. I'm a vegetarian (though none of my 4 family members are) and there seemed to be few vegetarian options, but enough to still take a while to decide. I chose the Risotto with Radicchio and Gorgonzola - amazing. I generally dislike the way restaurants make sure the gorgonzola is subtle and barely taste-able, but I... More

We were feeling disappointed with the standard of food in Palermo until we went to this restaurant. We were short of time because we were going to the opera and the waitress was very helpful. I had risotto con verdure and it was delicious, my husband had fettuccine with a meat sauce. We both wished we had come here when... More
