Sunday lunch in a hot Sicilian August day. This restaurant is known among the locals for its fresh fish and we decide to stop here, too. The tables are all outside under huge sun umbrellas and not really comfortable because of the heat. Our tablecloth is dirty. There are no napkins and our forks and knives lay directly on it....

I had the fish antipasti delicious i would recommend it to all fish lovers. Very friendly staff and entertainment from a young child doing magic tricks. Only dampener was the woman and her child coming around begging for change. Our pudding was ice cream that the waitress fetched from the ice cream parlour 50 yard further down the road. Don't...

Visited for lunch and were seated outdoors under the umbrellas. Quite a nice location under the trees opposite the Marina. Spoilt a little by the roadworks on the sea front which is out of the control of the restaurant. Ordered the fried calamari which was disappointing. Served just warm but overcooked so was chewy. The other dishes were spaghetti with... More

We were looking for an osteria restaurant but the one we chose was not open so locals directed us here telling us it was "much better". It was to be our last day of vacation and we wanted something authentic. And that's what we got. I hadn't yet tried the spaghetti with sardines, but saw they had sardine meatballs. Then... More

To be honest nothing special. Mussels with pepper were quite good, but prawns in breadcrumbs were very average. The swordfish, which was eaten by my wife was ok, but nothing more. So neither bad, nor very good, just ok.

I like to have fresh grilled fish when I am on Italian coast. This place is the place for it. The only reason I give it 3 stars is because there was some bred on the ground around the table, for some pigeons to enjoy... Not exactly my sanitary standards..., but when in Palermo...

The fish was fresh and grilled right outside on the sidewalk. The service was a bit slow but it was a Sunday afternoon when we were there along with everyone else in town! The view of the water was nice from the outdoor tables. It was a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon and walking distance to our hotel.

We came across this Seafood Trattoria whilst out walking along the seafront in Palermo on a Sunday afternoon. just along from a lovely Galetaria to the left. It was buisy with locals having a Sunday lunch out so we took a chance and it came up trumps with lovely seafood--- calamari and white bait and then swordfish topped with pistachios... More

We chose our fish and waited (rather longer than we expected) while it was cooked. Salads arrived and were finished (since we were getting hungry!) before fish arrived. Good value (under €25 a head including drinks) and tasty. Near the marina on wide boulevard (unusual amount of space for Palermo!) - not quite in sight of the sea.
