On a nice terrace overlooking the (back of) the Cathedral I had a good lunch here : friendly waitresses, cozze, carbonara with swordfish, water and ½ bottle of good wine : €35. Just off the main tourist route, worth looking for it..

I feel like I completely remember the credit card stickers on the door, but I can't say with certainty because we paid with cash. Sorry

Sergio and Angela Spano run the restaurant since 2004. Both come from families of restaurateurs who have passed on their passion and love for the traditional cuisine of Palermo, the same passion that today move in their work, seeking the scents and flavors of the past and selecting all the raw materials with care. Caponata, Sardinian warbler, daisies ca n'ciova, squid ink pasta with sea urchins, fresh fish of the Mediterranean, they explode like a vortex of fragrances giving you a blast from the past.
