Overall disappointed by the average quality of the food. Seabass was nice but overcooked. Mussels were really too salty. Caponata was ok but anchovies coming with it were not fresh at all. Service was nice. Briefly, truely overrated restaurant.

Very nice staff that were attentive and the chef even made a point to come out and introduce himself! The free strawberry liquor & appetizers was a nice touch. Ordered our own appetizers to start but they were too much for one person given that we each ordered a pasta dish as well. Mussels were good but plain and the... More

Gnocchi and Antipasto were very good, lots of locals at Sunday lunch. Good Nero Davola red wine. Simple but good and not expensive.

If you are looking for an authentic sicilian restaurant, which is of the beaten track but still in the town centre, you will love this place.

We came across this by accident one lunch time and went back the following night. Friendly service, good wine, excellent food and very reasonable prices for the quality of the meal. What else do you want from a restaurant?

On my first night in the city I wanted to somewhere to eat that was close to where I was staying. This place was just round the corner. There were some good features. The wine was good, although I was surprised that there didn't seem to be a house wine available by the half litre. It was good to see... More

Maybe, after the first two nights of excellent Sicilian food, things couldn`t last.....and thy didn`t...... We started out at another restaurant which was an abject failure and so moved on hoping Tripadvisor would come up trumps.......unfortunately...... The house wine was superb, the ambience pleasing, the staff were very nice but the food was unfortunately, pretty dire. Sue had the Gnocchi... More

We had dinner. The staff was very nice, welcoming and attentive and chef came out a few times to talk to us, which was fun. The food was good but not outstanding, even for this price range. We were happy with the meal, but in the 10 or so dinners we had in Palermo during our trip, all 4+ stars... More

Outstanding fish! My boyfriend and I were walking around Palermo one evening and found this restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise with great food and outstanding service. The chef came to our table during both courses and explained his choices and asked all about us as well. Highly recommend!
