Classic Palermo cooking

The dining room may be what you would call "well lit" so those who think that restaurants need to be very dark will be disappointed. Who needs the dark when everything inside is so lovely? White linen, attentive waiter and good food is all you need. Service was helpful and not rushed. Plenty of the... read more

This outfit knows their business, great food, great service, one of the best meals I have had. We changed our times but the hosts were very accommodating. Welcoming, mixed and relaxed clientele. Go there if you can, outstanding!

I am shocked to read so many positive reviews. The food was profoundly mediocre. The Pasta alla Norma was a step above Chef Boy-ar-dee in a can with eggplant added. The boiled veal pales did not have much flavor. We've traveled three weeks in Sicily and this is the first poor meal we had. Nothing was bad at this restaurant,... More

Excellent sea food based Italian food. Presentation of the food was also very good. Pricing is mid range and very reasonable for the quality you get. Reservations are strongly recommended as getting a table is tough. The only negative was that the service is slow and not the friendliest in an otherwise very friendly town.

The pasta alla Norma, ravioli, and cannoli were superb! The convenient location, charming decor, and great service will bring us back next trip.

This restaurant is in Palermo, Italy, as you know. It could be anywhere. There is no special secret. Take meat, potatoes and vegetables. Cook slowly allowing flavours to develop and a delicious, wholesome meal with wonderful taste emerges. The puzzle is why more restaurants fail to achieve such satisfying results. Writing this makes me want to be there again! I... More

We came here recently. the mussels are very good, as is the pasta with sardines and fennel. Our server Christian was very patient, kind, and very funny. (reservation for Sheldon? (quizzical look, pause) Are you sure? (smiles)... of course, right this way.) He made the evening a lot of fun. Please go here, you will not be disappointed.

We arrived on a raining night and decided to eat here based on the recommendation of a tour director. We both ate pasta and were impressed by the intense tomato flavour of the food. Later in the week my wife had pasta again while I had the cod fish (baccala) which was a real treat
