They had a prix fix menu of seafood entrees. 29 euros each. WE were served course after course! The food was amazing, fresh from the sea that day, and far more than we could eat. Wine was included. It was magical evening for our family and we truly enjoyed every entree.

An absolutely incredible experience, all for under 60 Euro for 2!! There is no menu, just a fixed price 13 course meal with the freshest seafood of the day and a refreshing lemon ice at the end. As many bottles of white wine as you can drink are also included, as is water. When you are done, go up to... More

This is a busy place and our party dined here at 10:00 pm. Lots of seafood and it just kept coming.Great value for 29 Euro a person with white wine included. My advice, go with an empty stomach.

Went with a larger group. No menu. Once the food starts, it just keeps coming. I counted around 14 different dishes served. The wine was delicious as well. A bit on the pricy side at $50E per person. We were a family of 3 traveling. We were all stuffed and satisfied. We had a chance to try a few dishes... More

We read about the set menu at Il Delfino and decided we needed to check it out when we visited Sferracavalo. We made a booking for 7:00 when they open, but they were not ready until almost 8pm. As mentioned in all the other reviews, there's no menu. No need to order anything. Once seated, the waiter comes by with... More

My husband and I go there several times every year. If you want to have honest freshly made food, this is the best. 13 km from Palermo, by bus, car ( normally by train too, but they are redoing the train tracks, so no trains at this time ) There is a fixed menu, full of fresh fish for a... More

We always eat here when we holiday in Sferracavallo every August. Fantastic food and lots of it. All inclusive with wine cannot be beaten.

Could be one of the best seafood eating experiences that we have ever had. We were served 15 different seafood dishes, presented family style, and the quality was 5 star! Wine and dessert (Lemmon ice) were also included for one price. Highly recommend if in Palermo.

This is one of the best restaurant's I have ever eaten at. It is in the area of Sferracavallo in Palermo. It is all seafood. You begin by them bringing out non stop seafood dishes. You finish one, you get another. You get a bottle of wine as part of the dinner price. This is a gastronomical experience.. Finish the... More
