This restaurant was recommended by a local & it did not disappoint as it was our first meal in Sicily. They gave us a menu but then told us to refer to the menu written on a chalk board in Italian. Our Italian was limited & the staff did not speak English. Fortunately, we sat next to a women who... More

Found this place thanks to the TripAdvisor reviews, otherwise I would never have found it, as it's hidden in a dark little street parallel to Via Maqueda. If you're coming for diner (haven't done lunch), be sure to be very early as the trattoria very quickly fills with local people who clearly know this place very well, or even better,... More

On our first night in Palermo this Italian-only-speaking sicilian restaurant in a back street caverous characterful space was a really memorable experience. Buzzing, noisy and packed with memorabilia from the pink shirted Palermo football team. They serve basic but yummy traditional food. This is not the place to come if you are lookig for a relaxed lingering meal. The food... More

I made this my lunch for my last day in Palermo. So glad I went! The service was great and I went away very well fed for a small amount of Euro. I had two courses as well as a drink and was very very satisfied. The lunch menu offers a bit of everything and you can have a small... More

Loved it the first time and just back because I could not leave Palermo without having this great food one more time. Amazing food and atmosphere. For evening, book ahead as high chances to hear "tutto reservato"

We arrived around 14:00 and had a quick bite. Awesome local food, especially the Risotto Marinara was great, but also the spaghetti bolognese. Menu is limited in the afternoon but still worth it. Reading some of the comments around service, these type of restaurants are about serving customers great food and fast. They are not rude, just busy... And aiming... More

I am from Palermo and I can easily say that this restaurant is the place I choose when I want to eat typical and genuine food from Palermo traditional chicken. It is a family business and all the family works there. Don't forget to taste CAPONATA DI PESCEPADA, POLPETTE DI BROCCOLI and INVOLTINI DI MELANZANE as starters. SPAGHETTI AL NERO... More

This place is a very typical Sicilian "trattoria". Like all kinds of trattorias, the service is fast and people straight forward, I read in other reviews that service was interpreted as "rude", but is not, it's actually meant to serve you quickly and efficiently. The range of choice is huge, try the "caponata" (aubergines with tomatoes) and one of the... More

I went here on New Year's day for dinner and was told by the waiter that there were no seats available, even though they seemed to seat some others (locals) without asking them if they had a reservation! Still undeterred, I decided to try them a couple of days later for lunch. I had spaghetti with peas which was fine... More

I go back to this place very often and have always great food. I wrote review long time ago and here again to write another one. Unfortunately the owner is always rude...really cannot stand that. On the other side his young and beautiful wife cooks really well and from the kitchen sends her smile. Thank god. What can I add.... More
