We had an alfresco lunch on the terrace on a warm December day. We chose mixed bruschetta and seafood risotto and both were delicious. here were lots of the pizzas on the menu but apparently they are not served lunchtime, not sure why! The restaurant seems popular with several large Italian families also enjoying their lunch. The service was weird... More

Was not expecting much due to this place low tripadvisor rank and reviews, but it proved out to be quite a nice place. I had a good seafood risotto, which was proportionally wrong (suited for 2-3 individuals), the pizza's were also quite good (but also quite big) and the location is great. Not the best (by far), but good enough.

Our group meal here provided good food and attentive service on a lovely piazza. We were served multiple plates of appetizers -- good bruschetta, grilled vegetables, salad, an excellent platter of thinly sliced fish. The seafood pasta was also quite good, and the house wine decent. Would definitely recommend.

We wanted to go to another restaurant in the neighbourhood, but on finding it closed walked to this one instead. What a disappointment. Bored, badly informed waiters, who mis-represented the dishes. So though my starter was described as a mixture of vegetables what I got was a bunch of fried batter - I think there was some vegetable in there.... More

We called in for lunch as we walked around Palermo exploring the back streets, the restaurant is amazing its like a cave inside, really weird. We ate outside as we don't get to do it often in England. The pizza and pasta we had for our lunch were good especially the pizza. Didn't try the wine as it was so... More

My family were welcomed and taken to our table. Our order was taken quickly - four pizzas and some drinks. To be fair the drinks arrived quickly. At that point we became invisible. After three quarters of an hour we called the head waiter over and asked what was going on. He shrugged and walked off. After an hour, with... More

I can imagine Gordon Ramsay bellowing at the staff here. They deserve it. Do not, under any circumstances, eat here. We made the error of trying this place as it was late and other venues were busy, otherwise we would have left. We waited ages to give our order, another age for the food, and when it arrived it was... More

I waited 30 minutes a bottle of water, and one hour for my plate, I took a pasta "casarecce alla mediterranea" with fish and "finocchietto selvatico",it was horrible because the fish was non existent and there was just the finocchietto full of filamet like fishbone! The bill was too expensive respect the food quality, because the plait cost was 12€... More

Maybe the cook had an off day, otherwise there is something wrong in this restaurant. Plates full of food left on the tables. Also our mozzarella salad. Looked and tasted terrible. And then also wait 20 minutes for warm beer. Disappointing.

You get approached at all the restaurants in this vicinity by pretty young girls who promise a good meal and then you find yourself being processed by sometimes arrogant wait staff. The evening meal for us started reasonably well, but honestly, all the restaurants are serving the same old thing! We both started with the tomato bruschetta which consisted of... More
