“For Sicilian food lovers”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I’ve been at “Ai Cascinari” few times, with Sicilian friends as well as alone, and I’ve always find an admirable expression of the Sicilian culinary art in a warm and pleasant atmosphere. Indeed, this is an excellent place to taste traditional Sicilian food. The selection of meals is large enough to satisfy any desire, especially on the fish side. The wine list is not excessively overloaded and presents a good selection of wonderful Sicilian wines. Special mention to the beer list with outstanding examples of Italian products; above all the San Biagio beers. The price are always moderate and reasonable.

“Excellent value Sicilian food”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

On a wet Wednesday night in November we secured the last table in the restaurant that was full of locals.We had read the reviews and had high expectations.We were not disappointed,whilst the interior is pretty plain,the food and service were both excellent.The egg plant balls in a rich sauce and the squid stuffed with prawns and almonds were superb and the Sicilian wine was good value and very good quality.
The restaurant is a little out of the way and you should definitely book.If you are visiting Palermo this is a must.A three course meal for two plus wine for 55 euros at this quality is outstanding.

“Lovely restaurant and food”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Went here on Saturday night in a group of 6, lovely food and good wine list - would definitely recommend when in Palermo...
The English translations are a little off but since I don't speak Italian that's really my problem! They also brought us complimentary snacks before food and biscuits afterwards - nice touch!

“Real Sicilian food”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is a busy, bustling trattoria with quite a few tourists early but as the evening progresses it becomes more dominated by the local Palermitans which is always a good sign. The menu is resolutely traditional Sicilian with a good balance between meat and seafood dishes. The pasta is excellent. Service is friendly and prices are reasonable.

“Excelent Food, friendship atendance !!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Very nice food, with good service. The owner Piero, is always taking care about all details. He personaly helped us with the order, offering a mix of apetizers what wasn't included in the menu. In the end of the dinner, offered us a Sicilian liquor from Marsala and some delicious cookies free of cost. Reservations are very recomended.
