“lovely lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

We were looking for somewhere to pass time while on our way back to Palermo airport for a late flight. Mondello was a suggestion from the guide book.
The satnav took us through the middle of Palermo; not to be recommended; take the autostrada round Palermo next time.
Mondello is the seaside part of Palermo. We found a number of restaurants along the waterfront looking at the harbour. This one is in the shelter of a round tower and is the smartest looking.
We went in to look at the fish and were recommended lobster, in tomato or cream sauce. We asked what was the best and were told cream.
It was called fettucine con astice on the menu and was quite delicious. We got half a lobster each sizzling hot and smothered in a cream and lobster sauce and fettucine.
With one dessert and coffees the bill was 55 euros.
We ate outside looking at the harbour and the view of the bay and the service was friendly and professional.

“Very good seafood restaurant in Mondello”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

The restaurant is actually in Mondello on the sea not far from Palermo. We went by bus for 1 Euro each. We had a table on the terrace with a nice view. Both our primi platti and secondi platti where excellent. We both had fresh fish from the grill with roasted potatoes and a bottle of dry white wine. Our waiter was great: very friendly and professional.

“Delicious food served by gracious, hospitable, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

Every time I go to Sicily I need to have a plate of pasta con gamberi (shrimp pasta) at Da Peppino in Mondello to feel as if my trip has been a complete success. The shrimp is fresh and flavorful, and the creamy tomato sauce, which lightly blackets the succulent seafood, is perfectly spiced. The view of Mondello Bay from the outdoor tables in the summertime is breathtasking and lively and vibrant with beautiful people from around the world talking and laughing and enjoying themselves as they stroll along the seaside boardwalk in front of DaPeppino. The quality of the food, the awe-inspiring location and the hospitality of the owners and staff make DaPeppino's a top pick for Palermo-area dining.
