“Disapppointing when compared to the reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We visited this restaurant on Monday night( that is a plus as so many Palermo restaurants are closed on a Monday).We were rather underwhelmed by the experience.An ignoble first was that owner/waiter had to be reminded that he had not delivered any bread(ther was a cover charge and only 3 tables were being served). One of the pasta dishes was supposed to have large prawns (gamberi) but only had very small and probably defrosted gamberetti. We asked that the sauce and steak be served separately but were told this was not possible. The main courses were supposed to be served with vegetables but thes were neither offered nor served. The meal was not expensive buut was the most that we paid in our 3 day visit and was the poorest value.

“An average of two visits”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

The first time we went, food, service and price on the bill were all due a four or five rating. How much difference a couple of days make. Our second visit was longer and more expensive with less good service and a worrying drop in quality. Principally the antipasto rustico turns out to be a bowl of chips with one each of: croquette, onion ring, hash brown and small slip of polenta at eight euro. Ok it was a Monday but so what?
