Michele and Jolanda are very nice and welcoming! the food is great!
The place is small and very basic, don't be afraid to walk in and choose from their daily dishes, traditional dishes from Sicily! It's lime eating at a friend's or relatives house, simple and good!
Don't eat all that Michele is suggesting, as the portions are huge!
If you go to the Cappuccini Catacombes, it's right on the way!

We are sitting here now! Michael is very nice and warm guy, and the food is delicious! We tried antipasti, and it was great! We will recommend this place to our friends and hope to get back here again!

A - for effort and friendlyness.
The food was "homemade" and better than similar joints we visited in Palermo. The experience overall was good so I would recomend it to anybody looking for a different lunch experience. I wish Michele and Iolanda all the best.

We stopped in because of the trip advisor sticker on the door, and although we were not disappointed by the meal, it was about twice as expensive as it should have been (25 euro per person). But it did include a massive plate of cold starters that there was no way even two people could finish, plus delicious hot starters, an entire jug of wine per person, penne pasta, and the best canoli I've ever had, plus small cups of (strong!) limoncello.

Michael was really great. He didn't speak much English, but made up for it with his bubbly personality and enthusiasm. It did feel like a home cooked meal, but we were so terribly full after that it might have been better to have slightly less food for a lower price. Maybe discuss the price up front?
