Fair play to the owners for doing their best. An aperitif was a nice touch. The roasted figs were basically fig jam on top of pecorino cheese slices. Pasta was quite overcooked and turned into soft mash. Seabass was good but small. Service was very friendly. However we noted the restaurant became empty by 9:30pm. We did not spot a... More

After wandering through the less illustrious side of Palermo, we finally found this small restaurant. Worth the effort for sure as inside the tables are simply but beautifully laid and the staff are so welcoming. We were treated with such care and enjoyed a welcome drink and specialty bread and dips. We all enjoyed our main courses. The menu, although... More

we found this restaurant after visiting the Capella Palatina, just 10 minutes walk. Good selection and quality. Very friendly atmosphere and nice staff. Thanks for the great Panna Cotta!

Well worth finding, a bit away from the centre in a gritty but dynamic neighbourhood. High quality Sicilian cuisine at a reasonable price.We had the chick pea starter, squid ink arancine, sea bass and eggplant and swordfish rolls, all cooked to perfection, Particular effort made to accommodate gluten free requirements for one guest. Really care about the presentation and quality.... More

Do you like delicious food? Come here! Chef Diego came out and introduced himself and his dishes with so much care and passion. Beautiful blend of traditional and creative flavors and presentation. We started with an amuse bouche of two dips and chip like things, then had the squid ink arancine and panelle with fava bean mousse, then the gnocchi... More

Amazing food, wonderful mix of tradition and innovation. The chef welcomes you with small bites of food and lovely explanation of the menu. Arancini with squid ink to start, tagliatelle scoglio and baccalà fritto, all of them introduced by the chef. A real gem
