- We went to sunbathe during the day. Open June to October it has chill sounds in the Evening and a relax feel with a van that sells Street Food in the evenings.All bottled beer €4Written September 21, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Amazing! Fabulous! I haven’t travelled to Sicily for a while and I did not expect to discover and enjoy a new activity. Anyway, what a better way to immerse yourself into thé Greek Mythology just right under thé Greek Temples of Agrigento!
Moreover, during the this kinda Music Hall, we were able to taste different dishes inspired of thé ancient recipes, all better than thé other and never tried anywhere else.
Big up to thé casting, Big up to thé Chef and the owner that even managed to increase the interest of my children in thé Greek Mythology.Written July 23, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This building was previously an industrial chimney. It had a great feel and the high ceiling and exposed brickwork gave it an airy but cosy feel. Food was excellent and varied. 5 of us with two courses Beers and wines and a shared desert for €70 was impressive. Will definitely return here.Written February 14, 2018
- Experience the soul of Sicily through the rendition of this Palermo group, via dance and song. Every member of their troupe is genial, kind, and absolutely gorgeous inside and out! Your welcome will be warm, and you will be introduced to their modest theatre as part of the family. It is within a charming and rustic enclosure in the Kalsa district of Palermo. You will bear witness to a spectacular performance which will leave you breathless. Perhaps also you will be fortunate enough to participate in the performance...
Francesca ("Kika") speaks English, but you will understand everything if you have 1/1000th the heart of any of these people. If you are not Italian, you may feel overwhelmed or 'offended' by their hospitality and exuberance which is raw and seeks to challenge everything you believe/know about 'formality' and 'distance'. This is Sicily, a melding of cultures, the best of all, so go with it, be free, feel humanity and love!!!
"Nonno" (the lead Guitar player and I believe leader of this troupe) is charming. He and "Nicu" impromptu, interrupted the act, to sing a lullaby (?) to our children on stage. Yes, it may have been semi-scripted, but the emotion exuded when doting upon children is well documented and genuine throughout Italy---especially the South!
The young male and female dancers amaze you with their agility, stamina and beauty. The musicians transport you by tugging upon your heart strings. Every sense is activated so that you can literally see, feel, hear, breathe, and yes--touch Palermo.
I was left struggling to provide answers to my children during the whole trip, "who are these people who say hello to you and actually want to know how you are when greeting you, who seem to know us but we have never seen them before, and hug-kiss-love-engage-play-and are happy for and with us?" I simply told the kids, "these are PEOPLE, HUMANITY AT ITS BEST, HOW EVERYONE SHOULD BE".
The Teatro Ditirammu group was no less. Among them are two small girls who gifted my children with 2 fairytale books/CD recording, which I later realized after leaving, was produced for sale (8 Euros each) supported by the Cultural Ministry in support of folklore and Teatro Ditirammu! I felt embarrassed but simultaneously honoured in a very personal way. After spending less then 2 hours with them, we were all in tears and didn't want to leave. Again, from the mouth of babes, my children asked "why are we leaving people who love us, when will we see them again?" and most devastatingly adding "and where are we going, why are we going home?"
A place like Sicily and a people like Teatro Ditirammu that can make you re-evalutate what you think is important, what you have, and want to change both your life and outlook, is nothing short of magical. All they asked of us was to tell people about them....
A huge heartfelt Sicilian thanks to you, Teatro Ditirammu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and as they say especially today on September 4 "Viva Santa Rosalia and Viva Palermo!!!!!!!!!Written September 4, 2014
- If you want an idea of what the temples looked like, do this and make sure you do the mask experience. It was so good and really brought it to life.Written June 17, 2022
- We’ve been warmly welcomed and took for the hour explanation of the art of the Puppi by the Grasso family, the 3 generations running the theatre .
What a discovery!!! An absolute MUST do!
Lots of love and passionWritten September 3, 2019
- Went to this bar a couple of times at the end of October during our stay in Palermo. Great views and perfect for Aperol Spritz sun downers! Laura was very chatty with us and a great member of the staff. Would definitely go back!Written November 11, 2019
- Avoid seats in the central floor that are in row 31. You will be hindered by the technical team that have a long desk there, & chat all the way through the performance. General lighting is dull & the sound system leaves a lot to be desired. Refreshments in the interval are limited to a lady running around selling "Chipsters!". No dress code- Stained ceilings & chaos when entering the building for the show. No staff in uniform. Free parking around the theatre.Written January 13, 2018
- Trying to get information out of the organisers before the festival was difficult - for me, as an English-speaker, there was a clear language barrier and they didn't seem particularly interested in bridging the gap. Catania Tango is definitely not as international as other festivals, to the extent that I had to leave one of the classes which was only in Italian. Having said that, you can learn a lot by watching these incredible teachers alone and this only happened once.
The free practicas were good, but the venues overall were poor: bad floors, outdoors so no air circulating, and the one by the sea cost an incredible 20 euro to get there and it's less than 10 minutes in a taxi. They claimed to have agreed discounts with a certain taxi company but if this is the case I dread to think what the journeys would cost.Written September 4, 2012
