We were looking for a comfortable meal and were pleased to discover this little pearl. We especially enjoyed the familial and warm atmosphere and the personal reception from the 'chef'. A chef who cared about his customers. He really wanted us to enjoy his place.

On the recommendation of a local, we found our way to this family run restaurant hoping for a traditional Sicilian meal. What a pleasant surprise to discover that the dishes were innovative - a delightful interpretation of the chef's grandmothers' recipes. Each course was superb, the service was friendly and warm and professional, and our dining party was unanimous in... More

We went there twice during our stay in Palermo. Somewhat a hard to find place the restaurant proposes a short menu but many surprises. Somewhat rich the food is tasty while dishes are probanly a little too generous. Beware that one antipasti for 2 and one primi piatti each will probably be sufficient to overcome any kind of tourist hunger... More

A family run restaurant with true family values The welcome drink and nibbles of fresh bread and delicious dips The delicious salad with white anchovies on top, the tasty seafood dishes are what every hungry diner craves for But leave room for the tiramisu ... you won't regret it, it is heavenly

Pasta with mixed seafood was absolutely loaded with seafood. They brought out the sea bass to show us the freshness before cooking it. Wonderful wine recommendation for wine. All at a reasonable price.

We were refered here by a local and we were not disappointed. Very good food, well presented and reasonably priced. Very friendly and helpful staff. Don't walk by as it doesn't look like much from the street. It was full when we went with what looked like locals to us.

Run by a lovely young couple – he cooks, she waits table – this place was a find! Diego is rightly proud of his ingredients, his family recipes, and his skill in the kitchen. Lunch began with complimentary aperitifs of wine, ginger, and strawberry and a plate of crisp toast with two dipping sauces: tomato and pepperoncino and a homemade... More

Fair play to the owners for doing their best. An aperitif was a nice touch. The roasted figs were basically fig jam on top of pecorino cheese slices. Pasta was quite overcooked and turned into soft mash. Seabass was good but small. Service was very friendly. However we noted the restaurant became empty by 9:30pm. We did not spot a... More
