“Worth the trek”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere, good food, good suggestions by the waiter in terms of restaurants and the best Arancini balls I had on this trip.

Not overly easy to find, but certainly made up for it and met expectations.

Only downside was that the swordfish was slightly overcooked and the restaurant is just a little too bright for my liking.

“Delicious and a great experience!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

A great choice for a lovely dinner! The hosts are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your meal. As mentioned below the menu is in Italian but Nicola was happy to explain everything on the menu. Great Sicilian food and chef made multiple rounds to check and make sure we were enjoying our meal. For the dessert, try the vanilla, coffee and chocolate house specialty....delicious!! Would recommend and look forward to going again when in Sicily!

“Worth the mission through the back streets”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

After a mission through the back streets trying to find it when we arrived the staff was very welcoming and helpfull. They don't have menu in English but the guy explained every dish in English to us and by the time we had decided and started to order the chef brought out some bread, sauces, snak and a welcoming drink for us and explained the different breads etc. We had a starter to share and ravioli and swordfish for main and it was all delicious. As we were explained everything is made from scratch and fresh products. Best meal in palermo with the best service.
