This place was recommended by our b&b host and we were not disappointed. We ate here on two ocassions and ordered a variety of dishes. The thin based pizzas were delicious. The seafood risotto was really tasty. Give the grilled sword fish fillet a try if you like seafood. The friendly staff (Hello... read more

Poor service, the servers ignored us 30 minutes. Bad food: disappointed by the pizza: my first pizza in Italia but the worst I've ever eaten ever. The salad was served with a salad dressing packet.

Went here after having read the reviews here on Tripadvisor, and were really disappointed. As an initial heads up, the prices stated on their webpage are inaccurate - everything on the menu is atleast 1€ up. We didn't try any of the appetizers, and instead went straight for the primi piatti. I had a farfalle with salmon, gamberini and cream,... More

After doing some research of the restaurants nearby (thanks to the TA app), we decided this one was worth a try. And we were right! Food was excellent, the servings very abundant. We had two portions of excellent appetizers which was just enough for the tree of us (delicious "focaccine"), then I had an excellent traditional genuine pasta dish, and... More

I found it on TA and as we lived not far from there, we decided to visit for the dinner. The staff hardly speaks any english, but are were helpful and doing their best. We had 3 antipasti, which were delicious. Especially the soup with mussels, which is something special and the portion is really huge. It took my GF... More

It was a great hit found last minute on Trip Advisor. Good value for money and far from touristic hot spot in Palermo, even if it's just 10 min walk from Opera Theatre. Seafood pasta highly recommendable.

This is the kind of place that I would never have walked to at night - through the back streets of non-touristy Palermo, but we went for lunch and were blown away. The food was actually just fantastic and also cheap. We shared wine, and appetizer and each had a pizza and the grand total was 14 euros a person!... More

Huge portions and great food. I had the spaghetti con ricci which were fantastic. For starters, the caponata and insalata di mare were great. The only thing that I did not care for was the milza. I would definitely go back.
