Came to this restaurant because the one we were recommended was full - and that was a god send. The food was excellent, as was the service...... the panacotta was to die for

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

Everything we ate here was great. The antipasti with cream cheese and potato balls (polpette di patate) was great. And especially for the dessert, the cherry soup was delicious. Definitely recommended.

Living in Palermo for two months we saved this restaurant for a special occasion based on its reviews. I can,t even begin to say how disappointed we were three guests each of us felt the same. It almost needed a Gordon Ramsay character to go in and shake them up, we could see their failings quite plainly. Everything they did... More

If you are looking for something different than your normal menu of pasta, pizza, fish and meat - go here. A surprising menu with great tastes. Also the aperitif offered to us at arrival and the well recommended local wine completed a night out dining. A nice square where you can sense the local atmosphere and above all very friendly...

April is clearly not the time to fight for reservations - we walked in at 9pm, and were met with an almost empty restaurant, tastefully decorated in minimalist white tablecloths. The food was fantastic: several specials were described in a mix of our halting Italian and the owners halting English, but the outcome was superb, and the interactions were more... More

Description
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.
