Arrived to be confronted with scan codes for menu and neither of our phones could access. No printed menu available and herself was not at all happy form the outset. The barman pulled them up on his phone and lent it to us and I...had to read it out. I shoed the waiter a photo of a really good wine we had had the night before and he recommended one which was quite average and twice the price. To be fair, he did point out the cost first and I made the mistake of accepting! We ordered starters and mains. The starters were enormous and really sharing plates but this was not indicated to us and, consequently, at least half od each was left. My wide ordered duck and a steak for me. Mine was stringy and tasteless and the duck was appalling. Again we left most and complained to the waiter who immediately took it in the opposite direction to the kitchen. It turned out he had taken it to the manager who made no attempt to come to see us but, when we were settling the bill, he actually told us he agreed with us and said it should not have been served. To add insult to injury, he knocked 8 euro off the bill for an appalling dish that cost 23 euro. Unless you are a member of gen z and have no knowledge of decent food, avoidMore

We asked we WeArePalermo where to get steak and they recommend this place and we weren’t disappointed. We walked up and were seated outside on the road terrace. We asked the waiter to recommend a bottle of red from three I had chosen from the...amount Etna region. The wine was nice and went well with the steak. We opted not to go for a starter but enjoyed bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I ordered a Black Angus steak which was delivered sizzling on a hot metal plate inside a wooden board. The chips were nice too. We didn’t opt for a dessert as the main course was a lot of food after the bread. Well worth a visit for a special meal and the most attentive waiters in Palermo. Ps. The steak is cooked on the bone with the fat, this weight is included in the price of the steak.More

So we stopped for a drink and I looked through the door and seen the meat counter and walked in to look at it and I was amazed at the meats in the case! So we canceled our other reservations and went here. So we...started with some sushi and after eating it we decided not to eat the steak but ordered more sushi and it was a 10+!!! The steaks also looked amazing!!! Great drinks as well!! And the service is very good!!! Go to this place!!!More

We had an amazing night with my partner in La Brace, the service and food was amazing. Our waiter Marco recommended us an incredible steak and wine to pair with it and he made sure everything was perfect for us. Both Marco and Sebastian (in...the bar) were very attentive and made us enjoy the whole evening. I wish we had more days to come back for more!More

Within easy walking distance from our apartment, we ventured to La Brace for a late lunch. We loved the vibe of the place! Unfortunately they didn't have a menu in English, and we struggled to pick it up on our phones. The sushi looked great,...but we didn't order as we were not in Italy to eat Japanese food! The Waldorf Salad with Salmon was very generous, as was the Pasta with Squid Ink, and also the risotto. We didn't like the beggars coming around the tables with begging bowls, and felt that they should have been chased away by the restaurant staffMore

While waiting for our overnight ferry, we decided to go get dinner, not realizing it was a Valentine's day 🙈 Some locals on the street recommended LA Brace. We went, although they were fully booked, they went out of their way to accommodate us. We...sat outside in the heated area. The place looked and felt cozy and romantic, with a love music in the background. The staff was very attentive. We asked for a recommendation, Dan ordered a steak, I had gnocchi with a pistachio sauce. Both very very yummy! 🤤 We definitely recommend this restaurant.More

Great service experience compared to the rest of the city, which is quite negligent. Nino, the sommelier is quite knowledgeable about Sicilian wines and the terroir, and eager to recommend food and wine pairings. The Chef is very gracious and will cook the beef as...requested -not to be taken for granted as they normally impose raw in Sicily. Good variety of dishes.More

Food was below average compare to what you get in the area. We had burgers which was OK by bland. Then the waiter dropped the bottle of wine on the table pouring it all over my cloths destroying around 300GBP worth of cloths. Owner and...managemet completely non apologetic. They were offering to wash my cloths not sure in which planet this is a capable. Owner was rude and was shouting and getting ready for a fight thinking we don't want to pay the bill. One of the worst experiences we have ever had eating out .More
