Among the interesting variety in the menu, the passion fruit mousse with white chocolate sauce is a must.

Stopped over after dinner for a few drinks, desserts, coffee etc. Worth a stop if you are in the Palermo area because the outdoor area is very cute and the staff are good too.

After dinner with some excellent wine we wanted to go for a drink. The waiter at our restaurant told us about this place. I liked the look of the place and it seemed to have a nice, maybe some what young, crowd on a friday night. We took a seat at the bar and wanted to order some wine. The... More

Music was too loud. Drinks were perfect (you must try their Marakusha Caipiroska). Order took too much time to arrive. Service is something that the should improve!
