“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was one of our best meals in Sicily, the owner recommended the dishes we should order. Although he probably ordered us the most expensive dishes, I have to say the food was extremely good. I have eaten at many restaurants in the world and this restaurant provided good cooking. We started with sardines that had been rolled into a ball which was very tasty. Then we had spaghetti with lobster delicious followed by grill fresh fish and an amazing salad.
Prices are not cheap 109euros for 2, but if you want refined cooking I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Fabulous restaurant in eloquent setting.Ristorante favoloso !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I have the good fortune of living very close to this fabulous restaurant.I had the pleasure of taking 2 friends of mine from London UK for dinner yesterday evening.Very picturesque location in the actual noble palace Sambuca,excellent interior decor which sets the scene perfectly.
First class service from the staff .The food was simply delicious, rich and full of flavour,fresh fish and seafood.Real typical Palermitano cuisine.I recommend the polpette di sarde and the fettuccine with gamberone e ricotta.
If you are looking for a high quality restaurant in an antique ambience then Ristorantino Palazzo Sambuca is the place for you.

“Sicily Gave us a Great First Impression”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We had just arrived in Palermo late one night and by chance we discovered this restaurant. Everything we ordered was excellent. The service was great. Definitely worth a second visit.

“Fabulous Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Recommended by our hotel, this small and quaint restaurant was a great place to visit. The owner and his staff are very very nice and friendly. The food was excellent as well. My wife had the Cod stew and I engaged in a wonderful steak with portobello mushrooms, it as cooked to perfection. I certainly recommend it.

“Speziale ristorantino a Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Our hotel recommended this marvellous restaurant - full of style but also friendly. The caponata was particularly special and the wines a knockout. All our meals were outstanding. The staff speak mainly Italian so I was able to use my basic language skills. We found this the best restaurant in Palermo!
