We went there for lunch. Our hotel front desk people recommended the place. Since the first floor is occupied by a small supermarket and delicatessen store, we couldn't find the restaurant there (although were properly instructed at the hotel how to) and were about to leave but a guy at the delicatessen counter figured that out and showed us the...

We went to take a Cannolo here because we heard it was well rated. As soon as we walked in the place there was a feeling of abundance with lots of great Sicilian products. But the staff were not at all interested. When we asked in Italian for a Coffee and Canollo they told us to go to a local... More

This is a hidden gem. We first visited the deli to buy a few things to eat in our hotel as we were too tired to eat out after travelling all day. That gave a taster to the excellent quality food that this place produces. The following evening we want back and had the best cheese and meat starter I... More

I too shouldve read TA before venturing for my yearly trip to Cibus to stock up on grappa and have perhaps the best margherita pizza on my whole trip to Italy, and was flabbergasted to see another Asian market occupying the former space...Luckily i looked across the street and saw the signage and was happily elated. Upon entry it has... More

After searching for Cibus at Via Emerico Amari 64, we spotted it just across the road at no.79. The new location is a bit bigger but the outside terrace area not so nice....maybe it isn't finished yet. We just used the shop to buy pasta and pesto - a good choice and close to the port.

Its different because it's in a mini-supermarket with a pizza oven at the back as well as a well-stocked cheese and salumeria (and pastries). The dining tables are surrounded by boxes and shelves of wine bottles, and indeed the place is famed for its range of local Sicilian wines. It was our first experience of Palermo after arriving late at... More

Unformal delicacy shop combined with a trattoria. They had lovely cold antipasto and the pizza I won't forget. Especially pizza diavolo was diabolicly tasty.
