+ Good quality and presentation of seafood + Beautiful views of Palermo + Very well responsive staff - The wine was not introduced and presented by one of the young waitresses, which is obviously expected in the such a high quality restaurant - not a big problem, just recommendation

We had a perfect lunch here. The food was delicious, the service was good, the garden and the views amazing. Be careful at the opening hours: it closes at 3:30 pm and opens again at 7:00 pm. Overall I recommend it to everyone.

Yes, the view is impressive. Yes, the service is slow. But hey, it's Sicily. The service is always slow ... you're supposed to be taking your time and enjoying the experience of dining. My issue was with the food. With all these great reviews ... and starting in a part of the world famous for its food ... I was... More

The service was bad, we've waited about 30 min between each course. We've been served withe frozen arancione and other tasteless dishes, the pasta (pasta alla Norma ) was poorly made and also the pizza. Do not try it!!! We went there because of the wonderful review that we read on the tripadvisor... Bad mistake!!!!

Excellent food and excellent service. Initial missunderstanding proffessionally resolved. Restaurant in a very good position close to the cathedral with indoor and outdoor garden settings to choose from.

We stumbled upon this tuck away place not knowing its ratings. It truly deserves all the accolades. Food was well prepared, homey; service was attentive and even caring since my wife was taken by a bit of cough and we ask for honey to be served with our tea. They found it in the kitchen, and that was such a... More

This restaurant had a wonderful setting and was our favourite during our tour of Sicily. The service was faultless and The Pizza was the best I have tasted. My wife had the mussels soup which was also exceptional. A special mention to Angela whose welcome and recommendations made it a memorable evening for us. We will definitely return next time... More

This restaurant was situated in a large garden which was on a cliff with a terrific view. The tables were situated both in the garden our inside the restaurant. Since the temperature was perfect, my wife and I decided to dine outdoors. We were quickly approached by our waiters who were very kind and efficient. The food was a very... More
