“Best meal in Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

A friend from Palermo recommended this restaurant and was she right! It's nothing fancy but boy is it Wonderful!! While we were looking at the menu the owner came over and told us to sit back and relax and he'd "cuddle" us. Immediately a plate of typical italian salty delights appeared, small pizzas, panelle and other "taste bud teasers". A fantastic wine list excellently priced and every dish was right on! For dessert I ordered a watermelon "gelo" to share which was incredible!!! I didn't think that it could get any better but when the bill came it was unbelievable that we paid a VERY reasonable price for all the great find and wine we had!!

“fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We ate here about 6 months ago on our trip to Palermo, and it was fantastic. The staff was super friendly, like most Sicilians, and the food was great. This was our favorite place we ate at in Sicily and it was moderately priced. I would try to make it to this place on your next trip.... plus they gave me a cute little magnet that hangs on my refrigerator ! ;)

“Wonderful food and extremely kind service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We went here for a traditional Sunday lunch. The trattoria was completely full - prebooking recommended. The food was extremely good, the service very friendly and the prices were reasonable. We recommend the mixed starters consisting of various tasting portions of typical Sicilian starters. We continued with excellent pasta with seafood and tuna. We were too full to try a main course but the ones we saw at the other tables looked very good. We would always come again to this wonderful place.

“Great food, good service and nice price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Typical local italian restaurant. No glitz and glamour, or trendy interiour. Just simple and clean, and you barely can see the entrance from outside.
But you get delicious food, the real deal, without a lot of fuzz.
We bought four main dishes, two salads, two dessert cakes, one fanta, one brandy, one big bottle sparkling water, one esspresso and a bottle of wine for 58€!
Ps. Order a table if eating out on saturday evening. We got a table, but most of the guest seemed to have ordered in advance since saturday is the big day out for families and friends.

“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We have been there in a group of four, had a complete three course lunch and drinks, and it cost us 70 Euros. I was expecting a 100+ bill. The starters and food was special as we could not resist trying each others food. I'd definitely recommend this place. You'd be better of with reservation.
