We fell in love with this gem last year. We made a reservation three months ahead for our anniversary dinner as we could not wait to return. We had a table in the back which is not the best place to sit. Two tour tables of six took priority. We were rushed to make our selection even before we could... More

This tiny restaurant in an exciting section of the city is perfection. Pretty space, warm staff, excellent and beautifully presented food. We returned twice during our one-week visit to Palermo.

I pre-booked and ate in seven of the (upper end of the scale) restaurants in Palermo over five days recently, but this place was the only one I returned to later for both a further lunch and a dinner. It has an accomplished kitchen that consistently produced high quality, inventive plates from local fine ingredients. The wine list was accessible... More

This off the beaten track restaurant is not to be missed - if you want real good food in Palermo. We were actually walking past and just looked at the menu. Apparently the place opened at 8pm, we were there at 7:30pm. The owner came out and offered us the menu and said if we wanted to come in and... More

A tiny little restaurant in a back street near the sea. Immaculately clean. Excellent and friendly service. Amazing food and good value for money. The steak was huge but beautifully seasoned and cooked. Good wine selection. No pressure to hurry your meal as the table required for later. Book early to avoid disappointment.

If you love food, and want to try local cuisine, come here. Yes it is expensive, but it is as good as it gets. The restaurant is unique in the sense that the dishes have a twist, and you don't just get typical Sicilian food, you get typical Sicilian food with a twist that gives it an extra something. The...

This is an intimate fine dining experience with excellent service, an interesting menu and very attentive staff. It is not overpriced for the quality of the food and could only be improved upon with a seaside setting!

One of the best restaurants in Palermo where we have been. I would highly recommand this place to other people. It is a bit more expensive in comparison to other restaurants but it is well worth it!
