The restaurant is in an amazing location with an awesome view over the Monreale valley all the way to the city of Palermo. Food was good, portions well sized. The wine list needs improvement, and my first choice was not available, so some improvement is...More

We stopped in here for lunch. The restaurant is set among orange and fruit trees and and has great views of Palermo. I had the caponata and my husband had mussels, and both were very good. We'd definitely return.
