Just stumbled upon this place and I really would recommend it. Really accommodating staff, fab food, quick service and great value for money. The starters were amazing and the pizzas tasty as well as massive. Would be very good for large groups.

We went for lunch. They adapt a lot of dishes to gluten free. Service correct. Food good. A good restaurant but just good.

We saw this restaurant advertised on the back of the free map of Palermo we were given at our hotel. After checking the reviews on here we decided to give it a go, especially as it was only 5 mins walk from our hotel. We were not disappointed. I had an excellent steak whilst my husband had the mixed grill.... More

Lovely service, especially by the young, English-speaking waiter - 4 stars to him; but the food was so-so and this is based on both the typical Sicilian-style starter and the pasta con le sarde (pasta with sardines) which seemed to me to be an Arab-style dish but disappointed - too big a serving and too much sardine and not enough...

Every time I arrive in Palermo I call the restaurant and book a table. The fish is fantastic and the cassata is meravigliosa!!!!

I arrived quite early, there was just one additional couple dining. I got a glass of red - owner's choice: Nero d'Avola, typical Sicilian wine - and the starters plate. I don't eat meat, so I can't speak about the salami, the rest was good, very much enough for one person. I especially liked the ricotta cheese with Pistachio. I... More

Traditional restaurant with a large selection & daily proposals. We had lunch at 14:30 and were well received & served. They have a terras on the small & quiet square. We enjoyed the pasta & fish & local wine. Good start to start our Palermo tour.

A group of 26 were served an excellent fixed price menu with choice of meat (veal cooked two ways) or a tasty vegitarian nut pasta all with free flowing carafes wine and bottles of water. The food was tasty, hot and quick and served wtih frienly panache. The place was buzzing with patronised by locals. Excellent.

During our vacation in Sicily, we visited Palermo and I thought we should stop by for dinner in a place I have eaten in a previous trip to Sicily. I am glad they maintained their standards, service is friendly and reasonably quick and their beef steak is one of the best that I found all over Sicily. My girlfriend ordered... More
