During a visit for work, stayed next doors, so stopped by for dinner. Wasn't disappointed. The most memorable remains the lovely glass of recommended Sicilian red wine. The starter, which was something of an interesting salad, soup combo dish, was excellent. The main course was a bit of a let down, perhaps because the starter raised expectations significantly. The spread... More

The gastronomic highlight of our two weeks in Sicily. Creative, imaginative and very, very tasty. Good size portions here too so no rip-off nouvelle cuisine in sight. Charming, laid-back and knowledgeable service combined with an intimate contemporary interior and good wine list equaled a recipe for success on our last night in Sicily. Highly recommend.

We had a pleasant meal. Fine gaspacho as starter, we would not have missed the octopus. Fish was brilliant in contrary to the salad which did not meet our expectations. Very friendly and good sevice,

We dined at L'Ottava Nota on 21/08/15. It was our last night in Palermo and we were staying practically next door. My husband had "Corde con Tenerumi" as a starter (pasta with sea urchin) - he thought it was delicious. As a main we shared the grilled catch of the day and enjoyed that very much too. The venue is... More

This was our New Years Eve dinner. Delicious food, but less-than-exciting interior and vibe. For a restaurant rated so highly, I was surprised by the food, service, atmosphere and vibe. I felt the restaurant lacking in soul and the food was good, but not spectacular. Tip: scout it out first and make sure you take transportation there and back. It's... More

We were staying across the street from L'Ottava Nota and shopped in for an early dinner. The meal turned out to be our best in Palermo. The interior is modern with a quiet, elegant feel. The food matched the surroundings. We had several tuna dishes, as tuna was in season, and all were excellently prepared. The service was attentive without... More

We arrived in Palermo late and we're delighted to find L'Ottava Nota across the street from our hotel. The food was divine, the service impeccable and the wine wonderful.
