During our four day visit to Palermo we stayed at an excellent B&B in the Libertà neighborhood and Francesco (the owner) recommended that we go to Il Baro for dinner, saying it was the best in the area. Il Baro is a fairly large local pizzeria, and quite popular, far from the tourist center of Palermo. We were warmly greeted... More

The restaurant has a very good location and it is easy to find. Pizza's base, tomato sauce, mozzarella and ingredients are SuperB. You even can choose between 4 kind of different bases: kamut, 5 cereals, gluten free... A must go if you love pizza! ** You also can order special pizzas (very creative, good looking and great taste!)

The staff was energetic and helpful. It is a local restaurant. The beer and wine selection was great. The pasta was the best I'd tasted!
