Very nice trattoria! Good pasta and fish menu.This place is full of guests from the neighbourhood. Everyone gets a bottle of water, a pot of house wine, cannoli for dessert, and some liqeur for the end, and all that things for reasonable coperto price.

First night in Palermo and our hotel had recommended this restaurant. It was a very cozy atmosphere and really had the feel of a typical small Italian restaurant. As soon as we sat down we were greeted and provided with a jug of what looked like perhaps peach water. Was surprised to find out that it was a local specialty... More

Went there for dinner after searching aimless for a sicilian restaurant. Free wine, water and the food was incredibly good. We had the mixed fish plate, kebab, pasta cu maccu and pomodoro melanzana. All of them were amazing and we also got a molto delizioso dessert for free. Best restaurant in Palermo so far. Highly recommended!

I cannot believe what all the reviews were about. Food is ok - but the service? Ages to take our order, had to ask for bread 5 or six times before we got any, waited a long time for starters and even longer for main course. Only explanation I can think of is they don't like tourists/foreigners, as every single... More

The food is delicious and well prepared, the service friendly and the price very reasonable. Wine, water, bread, dessert and a choice of digestive liqueur are all included in the cover! We shared the "vulgar" salad, I had grilled sausage with greens, my husband had the beef stew, would recommend to anyone looking for a tasty and filling lunch. Dessert... More

This is a place where I always take my guests who want to try typical Palermian specialities. Good food, old familiar tastes. The wine can be improved

We originally went this just because it was open on Sunday, but it turned out to be a great find! They treated us like royalty, bringing on complementary wine (all you can drink) and desert, awesome service. And the food also was delicious and very reasonably priced!
