After skimming the other reviews, I am a little tired of people complaining about the lack of wine list. This is very common in Italy for the trattoria's and it works because unlike the UK the house wine is always very nice, and importantly cheap....More

Ate there two nights while we visited palermo in July and found the Owner/manager Gino (Gioacchino) very pleasant to talk with and the food very good. The service was a bit slow, but very tasty once it arrived. We would not hesitate to eat there...More

I visited this restaurant with a group of people for dinner. The particular set menu, which was tailored made for the group, looked appealing. On entering the place looked small but there was more than adequate dining space in the back including an outdoor patio....More

Recommended by tour guide but the worst food I have eaten in Italy.my squid ink pasta was gluggy and unappetising and the mixed fried calamari and prawns tasted of chlorine. Service was cursory. Restaurant appearance was down at heel, dirty windows etc.

On Wednesday evening, October 15, 2013, my wife and I enjoyed a very tasty dinner of grilled vegetables, pasta with pesto and clams, and a mixed grilled fish plate. There was no problem in our sharing each of these dishes and our waiter, Giacomo, was...More

Well, we avoided a wedding party, although 30+ members of something like the local businessmen's meeting (yes, all men) showed up just before 10pm, as we were about to leave. And our bill arrived pretty promptly on request. We made reservations and were met by...More
