An oasis in white with ever so cool and hip decorative nuances...fun menu, serous food...GREAT WINES...have put at least 100 people through this excellent restaurant and every one of the guests have been happy...an epic statement, but this place is just that good.. Have eaten here 4 times, twice in one day...superb choice, but book ahead!

The food was delicious. We ordered "pasta with squid ink and fresh ricotta with pepper" and it was very different and delicious. For main courses, my boyfriend ordered the fish of the day and it was very fresh. I ordered black angus with melted parmesan cheese and it was one of the best meals that I have had in Palermo....

This was our last meal in Palermo. By far was the best meal in Sicily!!!! Great service and atmosphere. This restaurant should be the number one restaurant in Palermo.

My husband and I went upon recommendation from a local. Our experience exceeded our expectations. The service was top quality. Much of the menu is fish options. They explained the menu options and helped us order meals that were good for gluten and fish allergies. Not only a great option for gluten free but careful to prepare food for Celiacs.... More

The food both I and my husband had here was amazingly wonderful. If this isn't the best restaurant in Palermo then there must be some out of this world places as this place is pretty perfect. I had a tuna and burrata appetizer, the angus beef and the molten chocolate cake. It was all wonderful. Normally I cannot stand steak... More

We booked a lunch here for our six couples on our arrival day in Sicily. A month after our return to the US, our friends are still talking about this lunch as the best food we had in a month-long tour of Italy. It is not directly in the historic area, but is on a lovely side street. It is... More

This place is a little tricky to find if you don't know the area, but well worth the effort. Everything they have is gluten free, and supremely delicious. Try the pork and chocolate, you won't regret it. The staff are lovely and make you feel their attention is all your own. The wine list is very good. Our dessert was... More

Fantastic place. Accidentally found it. The pictures don't do any justice. Beautiful tasty dishes. Can only recommend a visit.

A warm welcome to a lovely restaurant with some really nice food and interesting flavours. Next to Basquiat which was great for pre dinner drinks and easy to find with jazz in the background. What's not to like!
