I randomly stumbled upon this restaurant while on vacation with my family in the off-season and absolutely fell in love. Some of the best food I have had in my life. The swordfish involtini was amazing and the mixed seafood starter was a great introduction to the diverse category of Sicilian seafood! The staff were fantastic and very friendly. Wanted... More

Wow, I found this restaurant thanks to the comments of the tripadvisor friends. It was not easy to find but it worth searching. We had lunch there. We arrived before the service time but they welcomed us warmly with some complimentary wine. We ordered mussel, seafood ravioli and mixed fish dish. The quality of food was amazing , they provide...

This was the essence of a place that the locals go for fine food. The Chef lets the ingredients speak for themselves. Our mussel risotto followed by a grilled sea bass was superb. It was a delight to find this special place even if our cab driver was flummoxed!

We had dinner at this restaurant, which according to the Tripadvisor reviews is number 9 among 1100 restaurants in Palermo. The environment is pleasant, and the staff is nice and friendly (we had long explanations from the chef regarding Sicilian specialities), but the food is only average: After an offered amuse-bouche (small gaspacho soup), we had Pecorino cheese with figs...

to read the English review have a look after the Italian one. Questo ristorantino situato nella vera Palermo, lontana dal turismo e' una perla! Diego, cuoco e proprietario, e' il cuore del posto. E' molto presente e accurato nello spiegare i piatti, e ti fa innamorare di loro prima di assaggiarli. La qualita' dei cibi e' eccezionale, e la loro... More

This restaurant is in a strange location hidden down a side street. When you find it then you are in for a treat. The food is delicious and we had one of the best meals we've eaten for a long time. The chef comes to your table to explain each dish. The waiters are also very friendly and helpful, some... More

Typical tourist trap, ok if you have no idea of what good Italian cousine could taste, either authentic and traditional or re-interpreted with originality, as this restaurant pretends, rather unsuccesfully, to do. We invited on the 13th September a Sicilian friend visiting from another city to dinner in this restaurant. Shambolic experience ! Decor was sad, with cheap faux stone... More

Friendly service. Funny chef. Excellent mixed fish antipasta. Simply stunning seabass and a bottle of great etna rosso for about 35euro per person. Food as should be.
