Having seen the reviews on Trip Advisor, we made a special effort to find this restaurant - it is a little away from the main tourist routes. We booked for a Sunday lunch and were glad that we had- from the outside, the restaurant looks like one fairly small room but there are a couple of other rooms behind it. At Sunday lunch , all tables were full and the family atmosphere was excellent. Staff are efficient and cheerful and gave us a very friendly welcome.
We returned for lunch on the last day of our week in Palermo as this was our favourite restaurant of the trip. No need to book for a weekday lunch. Staff remembered us and were very pleased to welcome us back . Most of the clients were business people- but there was still a happy and relaxed atmosphere.
Food is based on traditional Sicilian dishes but the menu changes with the seasons and is slightly innovative - more interesting than in many other Palermo restaurants. There is a well-priced and high quality wine list or house wine by the carafe. This is a good place to sample Sicilian quality wines without an excessive mark-up if you are a wine enthusiast-the owner is pleased to advise .
