Just around the corner from Cappella Palatina is this delightful restaurant. The four of us were completely delighted and satisfied by our meals. From the "Chef's Special" pasta to the deserts, everything was delicious. My one friend couldn't stop talking about the tiramisu for the rest of our weeklong trip.

Just below the palazzo dei Normanni, you find this quaint, charming trattoria, tucked in a sweet cortille. Upon entering, you feel immediately the warmth and strong character that we associate with Sicily, but in particular, Palermo, and before you have sat down, you are immediately hungry. The menu is tantalising, and you are too torn between this dish and that... More

We were in Palermo for almost a week before we found this restaurant. A shame because we leave tomorrow. Charming setting, gracious host who did not rush us. I ordered bruschetta which was delicious. The grilled calamari was good but too much for my small appetite. My husbands seafood ravioli with mussels et c was fantastic. Somehow we made room... More

We had a very good pasta with prawns, tomato and sauce with a green salad. The carafe of house white wine was excellent and our young waiter was friendly and keen to practise his English, altogether a delightful lunch.

We dropped into this restaurant to get out of the rain after a visit to the nearby Norman palace. Cosy comfortable decor. Waiter Giuseppe was an exceptionally personable young man from the start. We had shared a calamaretti and a mussels entree, and a matriciana and a spaghetti with sardines. Absolutely first class. The matriciana was better than anything I... More

Looking for a restaurant near Piazza del Parlemento we found this gem through TripAdvisor and it was a very pleasant discovery. We feel very lucky to have found a real Sicilian restaurant as our first introduction to the local food. We were offered a delicious "cadeau" by the chef which was an appetiser made from egg and cheese. We then... More

We had finally arrived in Palermo after a lengthy journey from Athens. Checked into our apartment, unpacked and with it being late decided to see if anything was open to grab a quick bite to eat.

Stumbled upon this restaurant, it looked cute so we popped in for lunch. It took about 20 minutes for our order to be taken and another 20 before we got our drinks. Two of the party were served the wrong order and we got our bread after the main course. The food was good but not worth the wait.

Thank you for your review. But I'm glad to hear that the food was good, but disappointed that he expected much. Unfortunately, good food has its time, its cooking, you can not cook without his times. When a person is in a hurry you should not sit down to eat in a restaurant, but it has to go to McDonald's,... More
