We had a nice dinner there with plenty of good food. Some of us needed gluten-free food and they were fully satisfied. Only drawback (as so often also in other places):pay attention to everything that is not explicitly mentioned with a written price ... you can be sure they will charge you a lot for that. In our case it was the wine: there was no wine menu.

During our recent trip to Palermo this restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide with the suggestion that if we wanted to eat true Sicilian food, this is the place to go. Since the restaurant was close to our hotel and we were reasonable hungry, we followed the advice. It was past 1:30 pm when we arrived and the restaurant was half filed. There were also others from our group who commented that we found the right place. We were suggested to order the 'bucatini con sarde', a palermitan specialty : pasta with a sardine sauce. Food and the house wine were good, service was good and prompt. We liked the place and went back for dinner the next day. At dinner time the restaurant was full and there was a wedding party in one of their rooms. What a change from the day before: service was slow, the kitchen and waiters were overwhelmed by the wedding party, food came late and was mediocre and the bill took a half hour to arrive. Our recommendation is that the restaurant is spotty: good when there are fewer guests and the chef is not overburdened, but mediocre to bad when there is a crowd.

We were recommended this place but were very disappointed. The food was average, over cooked and dry, service slow and a question re the bill asked nicely brought aggression. Not recommended.

We went here on the recommendation of our B&B and loved everything about this restaurant. The service was friendly and understanding of our inability to speak Italian. The food was even better, nice displayed and very tasty. The swordfish rolls were particularly delicious, I would highly recommend them. We finished the dinner with a great, authentic cheesecake. Overall the prices are very reasonable with each plate priced around 8-13 euros.
