If you are seeking Standard Italian Food...don't go! If you are seeking a memorable Dining experience...this is IT!

Our group ate at Cin Cin the night after we arrived in Palermo. The meal was a delight! The head man Vincenzo (?) spoke perfect English since he'd lived in the USA for many years. The service was friends and swift without being rushed.

This is a great restaurant with a very affordable menu. Not only do you get a great meal but you can take the opportunity to cook with the chef. 7 of us went to Cin Cin for dinner and 5 of us went back for Vincenzo's cooking class. We shopped and toured the market and then cooked our purchases.

Vicenzo is a terrific host and chef taking us on a wonderful tour of a market in Palermo to pick out the ingredients needed for the meal we were to prepare. The start of the tour is very unassuming meeting the group for coffee and a chance to learn about one another. Then the history of the market and we... More

We loved this little gem. It is not as formal as expected which was perfect for us. The food was exceptional and the best quality. The price was half of what it was worth. If you are in Palermo this restaurant is a must. Rated top 5 best restaurants in Sicily and we totally agree. Please make the effort to... More

Cin Cin is a superb restaurant just a few steps off via Liberte. The menu will suit all tastes including vegetarian, and Vincenzo is a welcoming and gracious host. The excellent food is complimented by a very strong, yet well priced wine list. Highly recommended on all fronts.

Excellent food, well prepared, and beautifully presented. We received a recommendation from our tour guide, and she was right on! The owner is on the premises, seeing that everything is just right. The service was impeccable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Whenever we stay overnight in Palermo dining at Cin Cin is a must. The ingredients are always the best, the food creative and the atmosphere perfect. Vincenzo is an excellent host and superb chef. I enjoy referring visitors from the US to Cin Cin as a wonderful example of what Palermo has to offer.
