Great Dinner at Cin Cin

Had a great dinner at Cin Cin. Very interesting cuisine for reasonable prices. Loved the eggplant appetizer and the swordfish pescada. Very pleasant service and a nice ambience.

We ate at this restaurant prior to going to the opera. They had orange table cloths. The one waiter spoke and understood English. The food was tasty. It was a very short walk to the opera. I always get the seafood salad as an appetizer.

We visited this restaurant during a two night stay in Palermo. We would have visited on our Second night also, Sunday, but it was closed :(. I had a beautifully cooked pear risotto, followed by a wonderfully flavoured melt in the mouth swordfish dish. My husband had gnocchi with pistachio sauce, and fish of the day which was equally enjoyable.... More

Superb freshly prepared seafood with amazing taste and flavors. Owner/chef really puts out some amazing Sicilian seafood, along with his mother's influence. The Ristorante is very romantic with a few secluded dining areas. We had a great time talking and visiting with Vincenzo, who happens to be an LSU alum, so he speaks excellent English (sort of) Ha Ha. Anyway,... More

In a homely atmosphere you will be served high quality food. Every discharge we tasted was cooked to the highest standard. Many exciting options, it was five of us and we all enjoyed the dishes we have chosen. Friendly service, price is very good for the quality of the cooking. Strongly recommended.

I emailed the owner, Vincenzo Clemente to inquire about a reservation on our last night in Palermo. He quickly emailed me back that he could accommodate our party of six that evening. The owner/chef is lovely - speaks perfect English as he lived in the US for 20 years and chatted with us, answered our questions about Sicilan culture and... More
