Great cappucino and croissant! Popular spot that is great for people watching :) There's also pigeons and people begging but that's Sicily. Its also nice to sit and not smell fumes. This is a pedestrian only area which is delightful and lots of great shops.

This cafe is always our go to spot for an afternoon spritz or cappucino (we are Americans) The service is spot on and this pedestrian only street is very nice with the trees and the shops all around. The only thing i would say is this year we noticed so many people begging the tables for money and one "No"... More

This place is just a few blocks from the Teatro Massimo, and a great place to hang out for people watching and snacking. Founded in 1860, the interior still has the class of that bygone era with its wood and mirrors. There is lots of outdoor and indoor seating which is handy since the place is usually crowded. They have... More

The outdoor seating under enormous umbrellas was the draw for us on this pedestrianised street in the Politeama area of Palermo. We popped inside to look at the gelato and were helped by the friendliest man behind the counter, who demanded we sample various flavours. Rather than getting takeaway, we opted to grab a table outside which required waiter service.... More

Arrived in Palermo tired after an early flight. Spinnato recommended by our hotel. This is a wonderful location for lunch. Great waiter who looked after us in exuberant Sicilian style. So good we went back for a second time next day

The finest. During our stay in Palermo we stopped at several " bakery " to taste Sicilian pastries. This is an elegant place with much tradition. We sat outside at 11:00 pm and it was crowed. We got what we ordered in less than 10 minutes.It was a spectacular experience surrounded by locals and visitors as well. When in Palermo,... More

We sat down after 10 minutes we got the wrong menu which was for brunch. We wanted the dolci menu. Again 10 minutes past. Ordered 2 capuccinos and got them after 15 minutes. The guy was they only one serving and was trying to get everything done in time, which was hard to do. The capuccinos were great but we... More

As far as we were concerned, the best reason to visit Palermo! We read about this place in the NY Times, and it was really as good as it said. On a very popular and busy street filled with outdoor cafes in the evening. Delicious arancina (stuffed and fried rice balls), fantastic cocktails served with a selection of complimentary treats,...
