The location of Ferro is very good, close to Via Maqueda, not far from the Teatro Massimo. The menu is very good, with attention to the details. The host and all the staff are always ready to serve you without being overwhelming. The restaurant meet two of the three basic criteria to choose a restaurant, service and quality. I highly...

For starters some typical Sicilian bites like caponata, panelle and sardine-balls. Nothing wrong with these. Nice pasta.

Really good tasting food and good value for money. The location was terrific; a vivid area without any disturbing noise. At last but not least, the service was very good. Effective and kind.

Beautiful little restaurant with a calm atmosphere in Palermo. Our meals came out slightly wrong but I presume it was a language issue... They were delicious regardless. Beautiful minimal interior

Came here on the last day of my holiday and was so pleased I did. Best food of my holiday. As some others mentioned, turning up at 9pm there was no issue getting a table as there was only 2/3 other parties there. Not as busy as pizzeria Frida next door which has people queuing every night for a table,... More

Everything we ate here was great. The antipasti with cream cheese and potato balls (polpette di patate) was great. And especially for the dessert, the cherry soup was delicious. Definitely recommended.

Description
Ferro Ristorante is located a few steps from the Teatro Massimo in Palermo's historic center. The atmosphere is refined and elegant, and offers its clientele a modern kitchen with references to traditional Sicilian cuisine with a great number of dishes but not all special and delicious prepared with seasonal raw materials and high-quality In summer there is the opportunity to dine outside in space in front of the enclosure, in the charm of the square which, little by little, is recovering the ancient buildings.
