Very anonymous and average restaurant, ended there only because on a Monday most restaurants in Palermo are closed. Food nothing special at all, service fine. With the wide choice of restaurants in Palermo I wouldn't necessarily go back to this place.

We had a pizza with seafood and full of missels!!! It was so good I couldn't forget the taste after 3 days!!!! It is definitely the best pizza I have ever had in my life! No pizza in Italy was better than what I had here! I would definitely go back to Palermo again just for the pizza !

We visited Il Baro as it was walking distance from where we were staying (Astoria Palace Hotel) and it is definitley worth the walk! The staff were very friendly and got us a table straight away despite the restaurant looking busy. The restaurant offers a huge range of choice if you want pizza and all options look appetising. We didn't... More

If you wanna try some true pizza with interesting combinations that taste great as well, go to Il Baro. We waited for table for about 1 min, bit I advise to make reservations ahead. Pizza was crispy and plentFull. Good beers also. Go there!

Nice restaurant renowned for its pizzas. Very popular with the locals. Friendly and helpful staff. We didn't wait long for our orders and everyone agreed this was the best restaurant we've visited in Palermo. It isn't the cheapest restaurant in town but definitely not expensive either. Highly recommended!

I lived in this city and visited with a local family who also agree this is the best in Palermo. Amazing taste and incredible dough. Choose from classic to Kamut( my favorite, aka oriental wheat) soy, multigrain and more as your base then toppings are just endless. Excellent friendly staff, fast efficient kitchen and just a great place. Try to... More

We love our pizza and eat it quite often. This was simply the best pizza we ate in Sicily. They have an amazing menu, and it took me awhile to figure out that they use many different kinds of flour that you can choose. I had no idea what the difference was between them so I ordered the classic?? Whatever... More

Our B&B host recommended Il Baro - righly so. We went on a Sunday night without reservation and had to wait for about 15 Min for a table and it was worth it. Lots of Palermitanos - some of them waiting like us. The Pizza and pasta were freshly made and of excellent quality. We had a table right in... More
