My final meal in Palermo was by far the best. Authentic Sicilian flavours with a light touch. And great service

Excellent meal in lovely surroundings. The best meal we have had in Palermo. Pasta and Couscous very tasty. Prices very reasonable for such high quality food. Definitely recommend visiting here.

We were almost alone when we went to this restaurant (on a Saturday night). It is in a quiet area, not too far from the cathedral, but far enough to provide a relaxing environment away from the noise. The staff was very polite and let...us have our space. Food was perfect and made from local ingredients.More

We truly loved our meal here. The food was absolutely delicious, and I loved the sous vide squid and the seafood cous cous in broth - thankful for the bread that meant we could enjoy the last of the broth. The waiting staff (two male...waiters and a female front of house) were warm and friendly, and the chef came out and said hello to the guests. The other guests were a mix of locals and visitors. One of the waiters, who said he was a Sicilian native, convinced me to try a glass of wine; I’m a non wine drinker but the wine was very nice. This was our favourite meal in Palermo, both for the food and the welcome, and only wish we had time for a second visit during our vacation. We would definitely recommend.More

We stumbled across this restaurant for lunch and had a superb meal. The inside is modern and chic, there is a courtyard outside too, and the atmosphere was great. Best lunch we had in Palermo and well priced. Highly recommend roast beef , the meatballs...and tuna mains. Service was efficient and friendly.More

It was difficult to get a table but well worth it. When we arrived the place was buzzing, a great atmosphere. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and then shown to our table by a friendly waiter. Our food was outstanding, nice breads accompanied...by top quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar, the memorable and refreshing octopus starter, then I had a beautiful risotto and my wife the seared tuna. As far as we were concerned everything was almost flawless. The only thing that we did not like was that the menu was only available online and not in printed form. We were too full for dessert, but they insisted on giving us (no charge!) their homemade orange/ginger/cinnamon digestif, lovely it was too. All-in-all a really nice family run restaurant. Highly recommended.More

Ottime pietanze, organoletticamente perfette, sapori delicati che si sposano con i migliori sentori Siciliani. Una cucina perfetta, un delirio per il palato. I surely suggest this restaurant, here you can find the perfect expression on the Sicilian taste associated with seasonal foods. Very good food,...delicious!More

Excellent value, very tasty food. I’ll go back next time I’m in Palermo. I had the excellent pasta spigola and the codfish dish in orange sauce that makes you feel you’re somewhere special. Good wine suggestion at reasonable prices. Highly recommended.More
