A great place for traditional local food, with plenty of atmosphere and almost a party feel at night.

I had seen this restaurant on the BBC series Sicily Unpacked. It is well worth a visit, not just because of its importance in the anti Mafia movement, but because of the superb food they provide. It could be described as street food but not on the street - the best of Sicilian specialities in a very pleasant location. Highly... More

The location and the atmosphere is nice but you can find better food in palermo if you are really hungry. The staff were not friendly also!

Very good food, nice place, good price. Traditional place in the city, serves street food, pastry, pizza and more! Perfect to taste a little bit of everything you should taste in Sicily: canoli, arancine, pane con milza...

Can't say I was impressed! One of those places that became popular and now it tends to speculate on his fame. I can just say there are better places in Palermo to enjoy the same things and try the same flavours at much lower prices. I wasn't impressed by the staff at all but we all know unhappiness of staff... More

We finished our 3-weeks Sicily trip in Palermo at this place. First, the antipasti: we had salami and cheese platter (which was average) and the slowly cooked cheese in vinegar and origano. This last dish was so salty that your tongue shrinked and you could not taste the cheese anymore and we sent back 3/4 of this dish. Then, the... More

The place is very nice, I suggest to visit. Sadly the food is not excellent and very expensive (it should be very cheap street food).

In a lovely little square, take the load off your feet in the early evening, and see Palermo stroll by. And have some pretty nice food too!

I've been several time for a lunch or a dinner at la Focacceria and last time was 5 years ago. I couldn't wait to be back to visit this place again. I found really good all the usual Sicilian street food ( panelle, arancine..) but the fish rolls and the aubergine rolls weren't that fresh and good as expected. Hopefully... More

We sat down for a small lunch/snack at about 12.30, tjen the place was allmost empty. Within 1 hour it was packed, a line outside to get in. The service was below average, as was the food, but the atmosphere was very nice, and the surroundings beautiful. Fun to have visited!
