The food was delicious but we have waited for the pasta really long time. The service was also not so good.

lunch today, wood fired pizza, delivered cold, prosciutto thickly sliced and difficult to cut and chew. glass of red wine was sour and not worth drinking. our order was taken by the owner/manager, delivered by a server. After requesting the bill and waiting 10 minutes, we went inside to pay our bill with the owner. No one asked as to... More

I'm pretty sure this will effect my judgement if I ever get the food my family ordered. Oh wow, couscous finally arrived

Charming location in the middle of the street. Fast and friendly staff, but no English and they were not very flexible when we tried to make them leave some food on the table (for the kids) before serving the next dish. Excellent starter which was a mix of tunisian and Sicilian. OK hamburgers and fries. Also great gnocchi, especially the... More

The menu has typical palermitan food with lots of fishes of course, they have the famous black spaghetti and the owner of the places comes gladly to your table to explain the dishes and ask if everything is okay. The staff is nice, the food is good but i dont believe the price is fair

Nice area where is located this restaurant, but the quality in food is just ok, and try to sell you more plates than you may eat just to increase the bill.

Crowded and popular restaurant even in low season and the outdoor seating’s were almost full late at night. We visited La Traviata twice during our stay in Palermo because we just loved the atmosphere and the heaters on the outdoor seating. Outside they served döner kebab and that was a popular choice among the locals. We tried the kebab but... More

This place was a twofer! It was both the Worst Meal I've Had in the Entire Country of Italy, and the Worst Falafel of all Time. It's really hard to make bad falafel. It's deep fried, for the love of God! But this falafel managed to be simultaneously mushy and indecisive on the inside and soggy and morose on the... More

They offer good pizza. Their kebab is good as well. I've order a cocktail there once, well, it was a huge mistake - it was warm and disgusting. Don't order cocktails!

Searching for a pizza we entered in this scary (since it was empty, I'd guess) little place. We found out only later it was a Tunisian restaurant also offering pizzas. We got a couple but when the cook was giving the final touch to them - a bit of oil - the bottle stopper came of and the burned pizza... More
