Very Nice Place

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

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.
