This is a small , intimate restaurant with good seafood and other local dishes. We had a super supper here fora modest price. The seafood was fresh and shown to us. The waiters/ owner were attentive and pleasant. We enjoyed the venue and the meal.

We stayed 3 days in Palermo and the cambusone was the best quality price. The sardine meat balls were just mouthwatering .

This is a smallish restaurant, formerly called Santandrea, so important to book as the kitchen probably needs to know numbers. We ate on a Monday evening in early March; the room downstairs was set out for a big graduation celebration, and there were a further...More

Locals recommended this place, but we only found tourists. However the food was great. The local shrimp, while fresh, seemed soft. The waiter came out with the fresh shrimp for me to sample -- indeed they are soft even when fresh. The sardine pasta and...More

Perfect place removed from the traffic if you want so sit outside and enjoy some authentic Sicilian food and a kind service. Loved the mussels with pepper and the spaguetti with sardins. Payed just 3 euros for 66cl of peroni.

An outside table in an interesting courtyard, waiters with great senses of humor, and good food. A seafood & vegetable couscous, a perfectly grilled swordfish, and a delicious, sweet insalata di polpo (octopus salad), followed by an absolutely divine semifreddo of almonds. Not the best...More

Off the beaten path classic little Italian restaurant frequented by locals -- always a good sign. Antipasto buffet (~€4) is excellent -- load your plate up as it is only one trip to the tables but is sufficient. Good staff & service -- always important.

I had pasta cabusone, and the octopus salad. The salad was pretty good, perhaps needed a bit more seasoning. The pasta was just okay. I was the only person in the restaurant that midday, so the service was very good! I don't think I have...More

Wonderful pasta dishes, especially pasta norma, pasta carbonara and pasta con sarde, and LOVE the 5 euro antipasto buffet, which is outstanding. Excellent service and beautiful, atmospheric setting. We dined here twice and would go back in a heartbeat.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is it possible to have just the antipasti buffet (plus I would also order a few glasses of wine and perhaps a dessert)? I am vegetarian and I don't eat pasta or pizza. My partner will order properly, it's just me that doesn't eat much.
