We appreciated the welcome and good service. The people who had veal were very happy with their meals. I had swordfish and was disappointed as it was very bland. Still, a very nice evening.

We stumbled across this place by chance and i'm so glad we did. Beautfiul sample starters while you choose your meal. The beef carpaccio is out of this world, as is the pork fillet in pistachio crumb. My partner had the seabass and said he'd never had better.

We rebooked for our anniversary the following night and were greeted as friends. Sample starters again, a mint and lemon sorbet given between the courses. This time i tried some of their pasta, handmade parcels with local cheese and parma ham filling with a local pork ragu. It was honestly the best pasta dish I've ever eaten. The service was perfect, the food even better (if that's possible!) The staff know their wine too and were happy to match wine to each course for us.

I wish I could have picked this place up and bought it home with me- one of the best meals I've ever eaten.

Divine.

Good food, good service. I had the beef carpaccio, which was a twist of the classic carpaccio, with thick slices of meat plus mozarella. It was pretty nice though. Pasta was great, so was the cheese and meat platter starter and the veal main dish we also had. This, with a good red wine made a great dinner. It's not the cheapest place in town but definitely worth it.

Arrived early as we had waited all day to go to this restaurant. We went into an empty restaurant and 20:30 to be told by the waiter that it was fully booked. We went back at 22:30 and the restaurant was still empty apart from a couple and two members or staff. Do not waste your time

Not easy to find in a small Palermo side street, but once there we were taken good care of by the headwaiter, a friendly, young man who spoke English very well and who spoke very knowledgeably about food and wine. His advice was well worth listening to as the menue was fairly extensive for a restaurant of this class, and the wine list containing many unknown names to us. All 6 of us had a great evening, the best food and wine and the best service during our Palermo stay.
