Stopped here for a cappuccino and croissant. The woman behind the counter acted like she couldn't be bothered. The coffee was fine and the croissant is not recommendable. I wouldn't come back.

Situated on a plush pedestrian street with smart shops and restaurants this is an Institution not to miss. Very busy typical Sicilian caffe with brilliant service and fantastic food and drinks choices. Superb Gelato (ice cream). Eat in or take away. Lots of seats inside or the covered street tables and chairs. Giusppie the waiter is great!

We visited Spinnato twice during our 3 day stay in Palermo. The drinks, wine, and desserts were fantastic. Reminded us of Cafe Demel in Vienna!

I went here to try the gelati. I stood in front of the counter for 4 minutes and was not even acknowledged. There were 3 staff members behind the counter, 2 of which seemed frustrated and were chatting about something. The staff seem very unhappy. The food might be ok but there are other great places to eat.

We only had a short time in Palermo and we were lucky to come across Antico Caffe.
We sat outside to enjoy the beautiful day. A friendly waiter was quick to notice us and take our drinks order. This arrived fairly quickly along with some delicious warm nuts. I think it is a great idea to give a small nibble of something along with drink orders - it definitely makes you want to stay longer.
My husband had been waiting for the day to enjoy some true Sicilian pasta and we weren't disappointed. He had a Spaghetti Marinara and I ordered Penna pasta with vegetables - topped with fresh Parmesan.
Seated outside the Caffe and watching the passing crowd was really enjoyable. We love the way people are able to bring their dogs along to cafe's in Europe - this is slowing catching on in Australia (outside only).
