Tucked away along a back street, near the port, this lovely contemporary dining utopia. Friendly staff, amazing food. I had a perfect steak and my colleague had a risotto. We went back 2 days later as it was so good. The down side to contemporary...is the small portions but here it’s quality over quantity. I recommend the Chianti Classico Reserve too!! Enjoy!!More

When you want a break from traditional Sicilian and would like to explore a more contemporary take on local ingredients with a full Sicilian wine list this is a great choice

Very high end restaurant with limited selection of dinner choices and petite portions. The wine list was extensive and very good. Although the dining experience was special and the presentation very nice, there are many other restaurants in Palermo where Waldorf Astoria prices don’t apply.

Reception is friendly, carefully developed "amuse-bouches" and entrees, nice wine list, but the timing between service and kitchen team needs some correction: we had ordered a white wine for entrees and chosen a red wine for the main course, but even before we had finished...the white wine, they were setting the plates in front of us. Of course, they tried to amend the situation, taking them back to the kitchen, but when they were again brought to the table, after the red wine was properly opened and tasted, their looks (and, obviously, taste) were not the same... Pity!More

We had dinner at this chic, sophisticated Palermo charmer the last night of a three day stay and it was a fantastic finish to a visit hallmarked by great food. We had the lamb ravioli starter and the pork filet main with cannoli for dessert...-all accompanied by a very reasonable and delicious Sicilian red. Couldn’t be better -recommend to all.More

We started the dinner very nicely with a tasty amuse and a good bottle of wine. The appetizer was also very good, the primi (spaghetti and ravioli) were slightly worse but still OK. But then came the mains (red mullet and duck) the fish was...full of bones and was served with too large pieces of very powerful tasting (smoked?) beet root. The duck was well prepared - on a side note it was a bit too salty - but the lettuce was not properly cleaned. Altogether, we had a very disappointing experience at this restaurant and felt that the chefs were trying to prepare dishes that are out of their league.More

What a wonderful recommendation we received from a cousin of a cousin — who had lived in Palermo. Inspired, creative takes on Sicilian cuisine. Warm, friendly, helpful service. Surprising tastes. Beautiful decor. Our dinner was the highlight of our trip so far.

I love the food and the staff, especially Carlo. They are attentive but not intrusive. The food is divine. Bloody Mary shots were delivered immediately followed by gazpacho which was complimentary.. tomatoes are in season.. mamma Mia is all I can say about that! My...daughter had ceviche and I had a bean, cheese and tomato creation that cannot be described other than scrumptious. We shared a grouper in a delicate fish broth with tomatoes and potatoes. I always try not to eat the delicious and warm homemade bread and bread sticks. It is impossible and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the entire basket. Dessert was a cassata ice cream and an apple tart with a perfect dollop of vanilla ice cream. We chose a wine from Etna, a Graci Rosso with the help of Carlo. All my favorite wines are offered and to make a choice is impossible. Palari Faro, Tasca D’almerita, Tenuta Monaco Della Terre Nere, Graci etcetera Complimenti e Grazie.. sempreMore
