You know what it’s like to arrive early evening in a city that you know, are hungry but don’t want to rush to your favourite restaurant. So you begin to look at some that you might fancy and the more you discover the harder he choice becomes. We had arrived in Palermo and were in just such a situation; so many looked OK but nothing grabbed the attention. We returned to one though and the man in the doorway asked if we would like to step inside. Normally this is for us an invitation to move on but something about the place seemed to fit the bill.
It proved to be a modern place with a view into the kitchen, music just loud enough to be acceptable without being intrusive. The man who invited us in was the head waiter, who said that he could speak six languages.
We had a shared starter of aubergine, tomato and cheese and for the second course, in my case grilled shrimps and in my wife’s case pasta in sardine pesto. They were both excellent.
So nice was the experience that two days later we returned. The place was much quieter but we were a little early. The meal was even better as we had an aubergine starter, my wife calamari fritte served in a witty foil wrap and I orata which was one of the best that I have eaten as it had a lovely peppery taste.
After coffee we were brought two complimentary glasses of the strongest most concentrated Marsala that I have ever drunk. Up to this point the conversation between us had all been in Italian, but when the Marsala came the gentleman went into fluent French. As my knowledge of French consists of four words, yes, no, thank you and love this was all a bit lost on me.
We were very impressed with Vino e Pomodoro, perhaps not the place for a real special occasion but as a place for freshly cooked food, pleasant service in a lively atmosphere it is to be highly recommended.

We got there late afternoon (3.30) on New Year's Eve (4 of us) as they were just finishing lunch service to get ready for their New Year Gala Dinner. They were happy to serve us and happy for us to 'phone our other 7 friends to come and join us. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and drink and how they accommodated us even though we must have been a bit of an inconvenience to them at that time of day.

Why the ranking is so low? We had our best pizza in Sicicly (2 weeks, more than 10 restaurants) at this restaurant! Various vegetables in the salad were very fresh. There were also plenty of vegetables and cheese on the top of our pizza. Anyway, it was a great experience!
