We ate here one evening while staying at the Centrale Palace hotel in Palermo.. The staff were very accommodating, the restaurant atmosphere was great and the food delicious. We would certainly go back here if we visited Palermo again

First of all you have to book, otherwise you are very likely to be turned away. The waiters are friendly and know their trade. The sommelier really knows his wine, and will either recommend a wine or make helpful comments on your choice. The food is wonderful. This is the kind of restaurant where everything seems to come together. The... More

We were here twice during our stay in Palermo and had quite different experiences. The first time the service was efficient but not friendly and the second time the waiter was a doll. There is a large antipasto display which we raided on our second visit and it was stocked with delicious dishes. The have great mussels, though unfortuntely they... More

Not only was the food great, but the service was outstanding also. The menu was in English as well. I ordered the swordfish pasta and my wife ordered pesto pasta and both had excellent flavor.

The nondescript exterior gives way to a cosy restaurant and a strong family presence. After 125 years doing the same thing, family members have perhaps lost some of their joie de vivre and a smidgen of their elan and the same can be said of the food I had. A large but unimaginative starter buffet followed by a main course... More

We enjoyed a meal at Casa del Brodo in mid October. The meal was excellent and looking at other meals that were being served at the time, excellent entrees are the norm. Service was excellent and we could not have been more happy with authentic Sicilian dining. One caution. If our time at Casa del Brodo is typical, reservations are... More

We went here twice - it was fantastic! My wife had the 18 euro set menu which included the very tasty broth whereas I went for the 22 euro one and had some incredible anchovy pasta and then swordfish involtini. There is also a buffet which looked very appealing! If I am in Palermo again this will be my first... More
