It looks quite modest from the street, but is absolutely awesome and cosy place on a vivid street where local ragazzi play football and people buy veggies in a grocery store. The food was extraordinary tasty, and the portions were king sized. They offer quite many dishes in menu del giorno. Everything, from vine to dessert was excellent. the prices... More

I ordered from the a la carte menu, even pointing with my finger, but when a salad arrived which I hadn't ordered, I sensed I was getting the more expensive fixed price menu at double the price. Finger-language problem? I had grilled mixed seafood which was of a very poor quality, rather falling apart and tasteless as if it had... More

My wife and I took a trip to Palermo and stayed right down the street from Trattoria, we saw it everyday from rooftop terrace. the guy on the street was polite every time we walked by and we sat down for a first dinner in Palermo. They grill the food right in front of you and are nice and polite... More

What a find. A few plastic tables scattered along a narrow pavement, with a display of fresh fish on ice and a BBQ. That's it. We were beckoned over by the friendlyrics proprietor who found us a spot, it quickly filled up so worth getting in early. There's a full menumber but worth going for the 20€ set. For that... More

Excellent food prepared on the BBQ on the pedestrian. We have enjoyed Mediterranean food, local wine and atmosphere. The restaurant to be in Palermo!

We came across Trattoria Torremuzza by chance as we looked for a beer. The fish being cooked in the street tempted us into a meal and a litre of wine. The waiter was funny and had good English. Cars pull up to deliver bread etc through the driver's window, The squid was chewy, perhaps overcooked but otherwise a great experience.

Simple and wonderful place, quite on the opposite of any tourist trap. BBQ on the street with few but motivated traffic going by. Best caponata we found on the island. Pasta norma is recommended. Frittura misto came as a third plate but we were all too full to enjoy it much. Grilled fish is a must and next time we... More

A genuine street food, go there for fresh seafood! Price is very adequate,the wine is drinkable, but what an experience! It doesn't get more Palermo than this!

Ate Here twice during our stay .Recommended by The Rough Guide and rightly so. Fish cooked outside on street and a good range of pasta. Fish courses and mains start at only 5euros and are excellent. House wine also 5 euros a litre. Very nice staff who are all family members. Right next to the Regional Gallery so great for... More

We ordered the fixed menu for two adults plus some extras for the kids. In the end there was way too much food for the four of us.The cutlery and glasses were not entirely clean when we arrived. Good starter. The staff were nice, the chef cooked some gluten free pasta for my daughter. Grilled fish was very good but... More
