When you work hard to overcome the harsh Sicilian charm and get a first smile from your waitress ... you are good. Food was very good and tasty. Especially the fish dishes. Nice wine as well. Good place for Palermo.

We were a little disappointed by the food. Ceviche boring with bitter unripe avocado. Pork dry and overcooked. Side dishes uninspired. Maybe the chef had not his best day. Service and ambience was very nice.

Almost by chance (google maps choice) we had a marvelous experience here. The room is cozy with pictures of jazz greats, the "manager" was attentive, knowledgable and guided us with food and wine choices. He said that the restaurant was owned by his daughter and another woman who do the cooking. You cannot go wrong with the food here. A... More

I have been eating at this quality establishment regularly ( maybe every six months) for at least four years now. I can safely say that not once my expectations have been disappointed. the decor is simple, very relaxing, post modern, without being cold. there is a soft jazz music playing in the background (never intrusive or loud) and pictures of...

A good restaurant in Palermo with good food and very efficient staff. I'd say nothing unforgettable though.

One of the best meals on a recent trip to Sicily, Malta and Cyprus. Had a choice of two different restaurants on a tour and chose this one, based on convenience to the Best Western Ai Cavalieri and also the TripAdvisor Reviews. We were not disappointed! Dinner started with an excellent pasta followed by a very tasty and fresh sea... More

Four of us dined here twice in less than 24 hours. It is within a few steps of the Best Western ai Cavalieri. The first visit was for dinner- nice menu (many gluten free items) and wine list with knowledgeable, friendly and efficient server. All meals freshly prepared and delicious. Black Angus beef with parmesan sauce was outstanding as was... More

What a marvellous dining experience on our Wedding Anniversary ! So glad and thankful we got to this amazing but unassuming restaurant in such heavy rain that we never thought we would make it there. We were greeted as though we were royalty and our apologies for arriving late were met with smiles and gentle shrugs of understanding. After a... More

We were here for dinner, as it was a few doors down from the Best Western Cavalieri Hotel. Incredible food that is reasonably priced. We had the soup, a pasta dish, and the fish. All excellent quality and delicately prepared. My wife is usually not a fish fan, but enjoyed their offering. The main courses are mostly 16-17 Euro. The... More

We visited Season Canto for lunch. We had two pasta "Primi" and two orders each of the grilled fish, grilled chicken and grilled beef. Only the fish was good.
