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

My husband and I and another couple did a morning cooking class with chef Vincenzo from Cin Cin restaurant. We booked it through The International Kitchen and weren't disappointed. After meeting Vincenzo in the square we walked to the local markets where we bought ingredients for our cooking lessons and also tasted some delicious street food. Then we arrived at... More

I spent a month in Palermo for work. I had been recommended to here by a friend. I went on a Sunday the first time only to find it closed (as are most places on Sunday) I went back the next day. Walking down the steps off the street I smell rich olive oil and fresh garlic. The owner/host/waiter is... More

If you are seeking Standard Italian Food...don't go! If you are seeking a memorable Dining experience...this is IT! From the Buffalo mozzarella with marmalade (oh boy, nothing like that experienced in Rome) to the Rissotto with pear, steak (with buffalo mozzarella, of course), fish, wine and superb Service with a charming Chef you will have an evening to remember.

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
