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

To eat in this restaurant was a real pleasure! We stayed for 4 days in Palermo and this restaurant was by far the best choice. Beautiful, tipical italian ambience. The staff was very friendly (the first time that a restaurant-staff spoke English). They served us with a big smile which is not a standard in Palermo (unfortunately). But the really... More
