Michele & Jolanda are amazing chefs and great hosts. The simple menu has pictures for non-Italian speakers and all the food is good. A must try to experience Italian family style meals while in Palermo.

Our family of four needed somewhere quick/simple to eat near catacombs and Palace. This place was perfect-we only had drinks and a plate of pasta. The pasta was very good-we cleaned plates. The owner is a character but was very nice to us.

This was such an amazing restaurant! The owner was hilarious and made sure that our meals were to our satisfaction. The cold vegetable appetizer was particularly tasty. The place is nice and kitschy but very cozy. It's on the route to the Capuchin Monastery. Make sure to get dessert. The cannolis were out of this world amazing.

There was no cooking done when we ordered other than boiling pasta, microwaving already made sauce and mixing it up. The price is not that low if you think of it, esp compared to food quality and the look of the restaurant. The... More

Michele is hilarious and the cannolis were outstanding! The service was excellent and Michele clearly cares deeply about his cannoli recipe telling us some of the differences about the way he makes them. Should definitely try one if you are in the area!
