We had a wonderful lunch at this small, elegant restaurant. The menu is small with simple but delicious dishes. Starting with a lovely appetiser and after primi and secundo piatti a great desert. All accompanied with a good wine. Highly recommended

This was by far best restaurant not only in Palermo, but during our entire trip to Sicily!
Excellent food and service. You simply can not ask for more. We liked it so much that we went there twice on during our 2 night stay.
Try their rissoto and desserts - simply amazing. And of course their fish, fresh and well prepared. And all this at very reasonable prices.
Highly Recommended!

I will start off by saying that the proprietor Gabriel provides a multidimensional dining experience. The restaurant has a very classy appearance, accompanied by the soft sound of classical jazz (of which Gabriel is a huge fan), then there's Gabriel who is possibly the most amiable host you will ever encounter, of course then there's the food, oh! the food. The food here is a fusion of Sicilian fare and the most tasteful and exotic food you have ever eaten at those Top Chef type restaurants. Naturally the wine list matches the wonderful food and the dolci (desserts) are elegant and delicious. The tables are large and nicely spaced. In short Gabriel could teach the typical 4 start restaranteur in the big cities of this world quite a bit. Dinner starts at 8 pm here and be sure to reserve or you may be turned away. Gabriel sono io Ottavio.

One of the best restaurants we've ever been to in Italy. Exceptionally fresh ingredients prepared in a creative way: filetti di spigola alla parmigiana, tempura cod fish, the bottarga seasoned pasta... were all big hits. Very nice and professional service. Great value (dinner for 3 + wine/dessert and free aperitivo at less than 100 euro!). Congrats to the owners & chef!
