We stopped at Trattoria Torremuzza since it was right down the street from our hotel. As we walked by, the owner greeted us and asked if we wanted to eat there. We had already eaten dinner so we told him we would be back the next night. Last night, we went there and the owner said he was waiting for us and had a table reserved for us. My wife had a special request which they made for her even though it was not on the menu. I chose the grilled meat platter which was veal. Both meals were delicious and the total cost with drinks was 25 Euros. As we ate, the place became packed with locals. We were the only non Sicilian there but we were welcomed. Even the local cat came by To greet us.

Read a bit about the place and went for the 20 Euro fixed price menu. Absolutely loved it. The street isn’t quaint, the locals are not quiet but you can’t get more authentic. Great food, great price, great night out. There are a ton of bland eateries waiting drag people in but this is different, don’t let looks deceive.

Totally unpretentious, on a back street off the Palermo harbor. But the seafood was fresh, plentiful and very reasonably priced. We ordered the fixed price dinner for two at 20 euros apiece and the appetizers just kept coming. The mussels in particular were plump and tasty. The pasta course was ordinary but the fish, prepared on a simple outdoor grill, was excellent. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much we went back for lunch on our last day in Sicily. A real gem.

We went there looking for a specific palermitan dish (sea urchin pasta), asked whether they actually had it before taking a seat (“yes!”), then after we ordered it was suddenly finished. To be fair, they offered us the possibility to leave, but since more than 20 minutes had passed and we were hungry we chose to stay. I ordered a starter that never came. I had pasta which was a tiny portion for a medium price and we also had a fish which was also tiny for medium price and not so good quality. In the end we did not pay a lot, but it was definitely too much for what we got in return.

We can here tonight as recommended by Roughguide Sicily. If you like fish, shellfish etc then come here - for €20pp including 1L house wine it surely cannot be beaten. Great food and service
