I visited this restaurant a number of times when I was in Palermo. So I was able to experience quite a range of food. All of it excellent. If you are English-speaking, the owner and chef Vincenzo spent many years in the USA before returning to Palermo and so his English is excellent and he's easy to talk to. The... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Ristorante CinCin while on tour of Palermo. My friend, who has been here before, raved about the food. She was correct!! It was wonderful. The service was grand and the owner introduced himself to us and we took a picture with him. He invited us to return if we are ever in Palermo... More

We had a wonderful evening here last night with superb food and brilliant hospitality. My personal favourites were the gnocchi in creamy velvety pumpkin sauce and semi freddo. We were treated like old friends and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Thank you so much. We will definitely be back.

Eating dinner here our first night in Palermo was like going to a favorite aunt or grandma's house . The atmosphere was homey, the food couldn't have been better. What a great welcome to Sicily

Our tourist group was brought to this restaurant for an evening meal of traditional Sicilian food at the end of our first day on the island. The food was quite good, despite the fact that so many people had to be catered for. The service was fast and efficient.

Our wives met the owner Vincenzo at 9am in the open air market to shop for the daily lunch and we were told to show up at 12:30 to sample their cooking. The ladies had a wonderful experience learning some of the basic techniques of Italian cooking and we had one of our finest dining experiences on our trip. From... More

The entrance to this basement restaurant is not exciting but do not be put off! Inside is a warm welcome and excellent food and service. The menu offers a good choice of well-prepared and original dishes making best use of fresh local seasonal ingredients. The Parmigiana with red mullet and sea bream fillets in a lemon dressing were wonderful. Excellent... More

Quiet spot hidden down a small lane. Had a really good meal here now, and an absolutely amazing meal when we were last in Sicily 3 years ago. Vincent runs a welcoming and professional front of house, and his mama does the great cooking in the back. Small menu changes often. Occasionally surprises with unusual dishes done very well. A...

The place is a bit anonymous, but the food is great: had fish and it was fresh and well cooked. Efficient and impeccable service even if the staff don't know what a smile. A place where we'd definitely go back.
