We had a great meal of Sicilian specialties, accompanied by a very detailed explanations of traditions that generated the food from the very amiable chef. Being of Sicilian descent I was impressed by the detailed explanations and discoveries that came with the stories.

This restaurant is not easy to find, but is well worth the looking. We had one of the best meals of our trip to Sicily here. Two brothers and a sister run this family restaurant right in the centre of Palermo, and the cooking is imaginative and interesting. Highly recommended.

We had quite a few dinner experiences in Palermo but this place here was definitely the best. Everything seemed very fresh and homemade, amazing and creative variations of Sicilian food, great tastes, a very good selection of wines and beers. Unfortunately we were so full after the first two courses that we didn't make it to the desserts. They looked... More

Tasty and imaginative food at al fondaco, all made in house, including the pasta. The aubergine roll starters alonside chick pea fritters were delicious, as was the seafood ravioli. Only wish i would have had space left for a dessert. I wish the young owners the best of luck.

This modern restaurant is in central Palermo, but off the beaten track. Run by two young brothers and a sister, they present modern Italian cooking of a high quality and individuality. A friendly welcome, an aperitif ' on the house', and Diego ( the chef) finding time to come to the table was the start of a memorable evening. The... More

We ate here tonight and found it by following Google Maps to the letter. It would have been hard otherwise. But, it was worth the effort! They greeted us nicely, and the staff spoke decent enough English for us to get by. They started us with free house aperitifs, and some spreads with crisp crackers. We ordered a green salad,...

the restaurant is located in the intricated alleys in the heart of palermo. Finding it took quite some time especially during nightfall when the light is scarse. Upon reaching the place we asked ourselves if it were the right place, as fading lights from sicilian family's kitchen light our path in that dark narrow alley, but as we entered we... More
