Dinner at this restaurant was one of the best meals that I've had in a very long time. I live in NYC, and there is no shortage of good restaurants there, but not one of them comes close to the exciting and wonderful food that was served to us during our meal at A' Cuncuma. The tasting menu is a... More

The staff were lovely and quick! Happy to help and translate the menu! Amazing food, particularly the risotto Fantasia which had orange in (It sounds strange, but was incredible)! They also gave us small starters beforehand of some typical Sicilian food, particularly taking into account one of our group who was both lactose and gluten intolerant.

This place in Milan could be a real exclusive place to go. In Palermo due to the location is less popular. If... More

Compared to Rome, Sicily seems to have a more creative food scene and Cuncuma is certainly one of the best. Chef/owner at each table ensuring quality and satisfaction. High end and creative it's a great experience. Menu only in Italian but they do a pretty good job of explaining in English. Go and dare yourself to try new things. Twists... More

As noted by others, and in my earlier review, this place take traditional ingredients and dishes and turns them into something completely new and delicious. We did the tasting menu and loved every bite.

if you are tired of the same classic Sicilian dishes (sarde a beccaficco, pasta alla norma, etc...) this is your place. Very sophisticated ambiance. We had the tasting menu and we were delighted. A bit expensive but it is money well spent.
