This is a nicely located restaurant in the heart of the city centre of Palermo. The inside of the restaurant is really nice and we had lunch outside on a very hot day. We had a table under the shadow and the breeze gave us a good relief from the heat and we found it ideal for lunch. The waiters... More

After a long days work we were invited by our business partner to have dinner there (and also watch the Euro 2016 Game Iceland vs Portugal). The service was very attentative, friendly and swift, the food was very good quality and beautifully presented. Would love to come back with my family to share the experience!

Menu was wide. Food was lovely. Service was good. Surroundings modern and a bit more stylish than your average tourist ristorante. Would recommend it and would eat there again.

The food at this place (spaghetti carbonara and spaghetti bolognese) was delicious, very good ingredients and the staff were excellent, handing out free prosecco to people queuing for a table. The first night we went they were extremely busy (the night before Santa Rosalia Festival) and we did feel a little rushed, and would have happily stayed longer and had... More

We selected this restaurant based upon how comfortable the chairs looked. Not a usual way to select but we had a wonderful lunch. We had a selection of appetizers raw seafood platter (the best of an 18 day trip), camponata, grilled vegetables and more. The service was very friendly and a lot of fun. We sat outside but the inside... More

We loved this restaurant. We visited twice in one evening and again the next day. The key is to make friends with the waiters and also friend of the restaurant Warren and you will laugh all night long. There is a lovely atmosphere in the little square :). Meg and Francesca 👍

The outdoor part has patio umbrellas to protect the diners from the blazing sun. The indoor area is large, elegant, and at request, air conditioned. The service is prompt and courteous,... More

It started badly. A Bellini that was flat as a pancake - they must use left over prosecco - and a Campari soda that was awful. The food was ok - some things (eg marinated prawns and swordfish ) better than others. Wine was poor quality and overpriced. On the whole pretty basic. But the setting's nice! A tourist trap...

The evening started rocky to the point we almost left. Why? It took half an hour after we sat until a waiter approached us to get the order. There was an issue getting water to the table, too. After we ordered, the waiter asked some questions that we misunderstood and he started rolling his eyes and getting upset. It had... More
