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.

The food was excellent, as was the service but we were a little disappointed with the menu. It wasn't as extensive as we expected and we would have repeated our visit if there had been more choice. Still well worth a visit, though.

It was our first meal of a very long trip to Italy and this was still one of my favorites many stops later. I'd highly recommend stopping in to Ristorante Cin Cin if you are every in Palermo. It was a quiet setting with an engaging host and a well prepared, authentic meal.

We are at this wonderful, highly rated family run restaurant on our first nite as a prelude to doing a hands on cooking class the next morning. Our meal that nite was fabulous in a simple but pretty restaurant tucked away in a small alley. The service was excellent as Vincenzo Clemente (the owner/Chef) delights in explaining and advising on... More

We have been dining at Cin Cin for several years when we visit Palermo and it is always a wonderful dining experience. The restaurant sits just off Via Liberta' so it is away from the crowds and is very private and restful. Vincenzo is always an excellent host and makes great food and wine recommendations while Mama cooks up a... More
