Great little restaurant away from the tourist trappings. Food tastes home cooked and not greasy like some places in Palermo! Staff incredibly friendly and welcoming. House wine was delicious and desserts to die for without being sickly sweet.

We arrived just before 11 pm and were friendly welcomed. The staff spoke a little bit English, but a friend of the owner was there and was so friendly to explain a few things and help us order. The staff is very friendly, the food...is great, good portions and very affordable.More

Very nice pizza place, extremely polite staff. I regret not asking for our waiter's name. We were a group of 4 friends all weary from walking all day but our waiter made us smile by teaching us how to build a rosebud from a paper...napkin. Thank you for everything.More

The restaurant is not far from the cathedral and the area is nice. The place is very well decorated and the staff are really nice. The service was quick and the food was great! The anchovie is the speciality. We tried pizza and pasta, both...with anchovies (shredded) and it was delicious. I would recommend anyone to visit this place with such a nice atmosphere. Also, the price was good (24€ for a pizza, a pasta plate and a big bottle of water)More

We had dinner here and the staff was very friendly. The mussels were brilliant, the pasta was super-tasty and it was the best chocolate mousse ever. The atmosphere was lovely.
