A good place for a cheap meal. Food was tasty and inexpensive. Get there before 8 pm if you don’t want to queue. You’ll have to put up with close encounters of the elbow kind as seating is very squashed. Not a place where you...More

Super yummy food in an inviting if busy atmosphere (shared tables are sometimes a bit crowded). Often there’s a long wait, but I’ve never been disappointed by the food. Prices are also reasonable, especially for the quality. Recommend!

Having traveled around Sicily we ended our trip in Palmero eating our last and best meal by far at Bisso Bistrot not only for service but quality and price, a really authentic taste and experience of Sicilian life!
