“Good value in the self service area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

This old established patticeria has a small self service area that we found quite accidentally. It was very busy. The food appetising and tasty. Only disadvantage you can't get a coffee, only cold drinks.

“Pretty deli section - no room at the cafe though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

I went here looking for history, a beautiful shop is nxt to the café where you can buy all sorts of Italian/Sicilian specialities including cannoli, coffee, Masala and other pastries/chocolates. The service is slow but polite in the store. Outside the pedestrianized pavement has a few cafes and Spinnato has tables with umbrellas taking up the middle section of the pavement. I did not stay as it was packed, but the food they were bringing out to customers looked lovely.

“Try the Italian Way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Spinnato is a traditional Italian Cafe in Palermo. It's located on a pedestrian street and it features a great area outside. Lunch menu changes everyday and food is delicious at a reasonable price. I suggest you to save a couple hours to sit and watch life goes by over a great meal, a glass of (local) wine, and an espresso to wrap it up!

“Very good with caveats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Spinnato isn't just one restaurant; we found at least 4, all in the same area. The little deli type one where you go in & order food to take with you was great. The staff were patient and friendly and the food was good. There is a gelato shop on the other side of the block as well as a chocolate shop. Then there is the part of it where you sit down & eat and all I can say is what snobby attitudes. I was taken aback; we opted not to eat there due to the attitudes. So, go to the little deli place, the gelato place, the chocolate shop but skip the attitudes at the sit-down place.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Perfect place in palermo for a glass of prosecco whilst watching the world go by! Didn't eat hear, but the menu of gelato and pudding looked amazing.
