We visited this restaurant recently while staying in the local piazza. It was a great find. The staff were very friendly. We ate there on a Thursday evening in mid Feb. Despite the quiet atmosphere due to time of year we had a wonderful dining experience. The food was local Sicilian with a modern/ French twist. We were greeted with... More

Had dinner here our last night in Palermo. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel, but there were also good reviews on TripAdvisor. We arrived on the early side (8) and were the only ones in the restaurant. Service was wonderful and attentive. Within half an hour, the restaurant started filling up - it was clear that everyone knew the... More

The location of Ferro is very good, close to Via Maqueda, not far from the Teatro Massimo. The menu is very good, with attention to the details. The host and all the staff are always ready to serve you without being overwhelming. The restaurant meet two of the three basic criteria to choose a restaurant, service and quality. I highly...

We wanted to have dinner next door at Frida's but that was fulltime booked until much later that night. Decided to have the Sicilian menu at Ferro. For starters some typical Sicilian bites like caponata, panelle and sardine-balls. Nothing wrong with these. Nice pasta. Main course of meat- or swordfish croquettes was not what I would normally order. Good canolo... More

Really good tasting food and good value for money. The location was terrific; a vivid area without any disturbing noise. At last but not least, the service was very good. Effective and kind.

Beautiful little restaurant with a calm atmosphere in Palermo. Our meals came out slightly wrong but I presume it was a language issue... They were delicious regardless. Beautiful minimal interior

Came here on the last day of my holiday and was so pleased I did. Best food of my holiday. As some others mentioned, turning up at 9pm there was no issue getting a table as there was only 2/3 other parties there. Not as busy as pizzeria Frida next door which has people queuing every night for a table,... More

Ferro Ristorante is located a few steps from the Teatro Massimo in Palermo's historic center. The atmosphere is refined and elegant, and offers its clientele a modern kitchen with references to traditional Sicilian cuisine with a great number of dishes but not all special and delicious prepared with seasonal raw materials and high-quality In summer there is the opportunity to dine outside in space in front of the enclosure, in the charm of the square which, little by little, is recovering the ancient buildings.
