“Great little restaurant in the centre of Palermo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Charming little restaurant, recommended to us and booked for us by somebody from the hotel. They clearly only serve seasonal food, which meant my choice of dessert was unavailable and the substitute was a bit of a disappointment, but all in all a good meal in a very pleasant atmosphere.

“oasis in this tired city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. despite being off the beaten track a little it proved an oasis of calm and relaxation in this tired and grubby city. Wonderful decor in a historic building. gentle service, fabulous food served with imagination and creativity. Excellent wine reasonably priced. I'm sorry we didn't find this place sooner as we would have eaten here every night. Go. Enjoy.

“Beautiful and stylish dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This restaurant has panache and very good food, stylishly served. The trio of marinated raw fish and the lightly cooked squid were especially good

“a lovely restaurant well hidden in old Palermo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We had a little trouble finding this restaurant as it is tucked away down an uninviting lane, but we were rewarded for our persistence. The restaurant has a traditional Italian ambiance with lots of dark panelled wood. We found the seafood and wine selections delicious. All in all an enjoyable experience and very good value.
