The best in Palermo

Our favorite place in Palermo! The chef is excellent and passionate about his craft. The servers are amazing. A must if you are looking for an incredible dining experience and a true taste of Sicily. I wish Anthony Bourdain would visit this place and review it..

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights in Palermo. We chose the restaurants in Palermo based on the ranking of trip-advisor. While we were totally unhappy with the first two choices and already doomed Palermo to be the hell of Sicilian food, we were saved by the food, service, and philosophy of the 3 siblings running al fondaco del conte....

We ate here a couple of times and found the Chef and the rest of his family very accommodating. We really loved the food and enjoyed the ambiance, the friendliness, and of course the food. We would return!!

The food is exquisite. Very nice small restaurant tucked away in a small street. The staff is very friendly and the chef will come to your table to ensure that you are fully satisfied. Great Sicilian wine. If you are in Palermo for a while, you will return often to this restaurant.

My first five hours in Palermo had been fraught with stress, simple driving, attempting to park for luggage drop off, lack of hosts to accept luggage, the crosstown drive to download the rental car and to find the street where hertz was located, a crosstown walk with 100% of luggage in the late afternoon, then a dash to visit the...

Tasty and a little twisted take in Sicilian classics. Mint basil mayonnaise was wonderful. Located in a back alley and worth seeking out.

We arrived late in Palermo and wanted to eat and this restaurant was recommended by our host where were staying (www.leterrazzebb.it) . We arrived at around 11pm and although they looked like they were looking to close up, they accommodated us. We both had the ravioli stuffed with fish, with a shrimp and tomato sauce, delicious! We went back another... More
