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!

we were staying right next door to this gem of a restaurant and visited for my birthday meal. We were not disappointed. We had the most amazing eggplant balls for starters - never had anything like this before. Our food was super delicious and fresh, the wine was great. There is a lovely atmosphere and the staff are very friendly.... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant on our first night in Palermo. We were not dissappointed with the quality of food. It was excellent. We enjoyed several seafood dishes, including one plate that had an assortment of different types of local fish favorites. The only small issue we had was a lack of quality and attentive service.

My husband and I went here on our 1st night in Palermo for our anniversary. The design is contemporary, tasteful and subtle. Barely noticeable background jazz music, real jazz, not smooth jazz. The food is fresh and delicious. My husband had the fresh fish with lime juice and red onion. We both loved it. We shared a salt crusted fish,... More

We loved everything about this restaurant; the simple stylish decor, the service, and the most delicious food. It would best be described as a modern take on Sicilian food with some French influence. The waiters were very charming and professional. Patrons were a mix of locals and tourists. It is only small so booking ahead is advised. Highly recommended!
