What a delight this place was. We lunched outside next to the park with the magnificent trees, and were brought course after course of outstanding Sicilian cuisine. What a delightful experience. We heard the story of the Beati Paoli, the Scarlet Pimpernels of Sicily, and their haunts beneath the streets of Old Palermo. Then we ventured inside to see the grotto the interior of the restaurant is built in. If I return, I'll be sure to come for dinner so I can enjoy the magical setting.

We decided to try the pizza here on the recommendation of our hotel porter. Mistake. It was unpleasantly greasy and several of the ingredients were canned (watery artichokes, rubbery porcini mushrooms, etc). My partner had a meat dish, the meat was very good, though the sauce it was served with was bland and uninteresting. It was overpriced for what they serve.
The wine list is ok. Atmosphere is a bit claustrophobic inside (it's all done out like a sort of cave).

Come early, before 8 or you will not get a table ! There are 3 restaurants together, this one full with many waiting, the 1 before and after almost empty. Many locals eat here on a Friday night. To get there go down Via Vittorio Emanuele past the Falkensteiner hotel and turn right, go round the right side of the park until you almost come to the huge tree. Good luck.

Just Bad Food (a lot of dished based on frozen food) and quite expensive. The place was quite crowded (one of the reasons we choose it) but finally turned to be just a "tourist trap"
There are so much good places 2 eat in Palermo that i believe it is really difficult to find a worst place than this :)

Palermo can be exhausing and this place is a real oasis. Pizza was to die for, staff easy going and friendly. House white wine was lovely. Also, surroundings of Piazza Marina, the old churches and palaces is just ideal. The most tranquil and perfect moment on our Palermo trip.
