Unbelievable!!!!! They served us the worst pizza we have ever eaten all around the world. It is incredible because we were in the hearth of Palermo!!! Neither of us was able to eat more than half of the pizza and the waiters did not seem surprised. Stay away from this place.....

Unluckily I came here with my family without previously checking reviews because we were in a hurry. Terrible mistake! The pizza is just awful. I am italian and I didn't think it would be possible to find such a bad pizza in my country. Even more so considering that this restaurant is in the south of Italy, which is known... More

Have to agree with many others who have already reviewed this place. Vast number of diners, which one might suppose would augur well, but both food and service undoubtedly a little slapdash in comparison with our other culinary experiences in Sicily.

Large sophisticated restaurant with covered terrace situated close to Teatro Massimo. Excellent pizzas in a pleasant atmosphere.

Visited last Friday for my wife's birthday and was very disappointed. Restaurant looks amazing but the staff are ignorant unless you are a local. The food was bland and boring and the red wine must have been stored in the fridge. Yuk!!!! It was very expensive for what we had and we would rather eat in one of the local... More

My husband and I looked for a restaurant by the theatre and came across this. We were seated but were not offered menus. We ordered olives which were salty, my white wine wasn't chilled and service was slow even though they were not busy. My husband ordered caponata which did not taste like the caponata we had at another restaurant... More

Cosy place near Massimo. Ok service but nothing extraordinarily. Only if you are hungry. Better walk little further.

The outside of the restaurant is beautiful. This really draws you in, alongside the water fountain with turtles swimming around. But, more importantly, the food is pretty average. Not terrible by any means, but really nothing worth bragging about. The service is slow and the waiter who served us wasn't very polite. At times, we were made to feel like... More

I never ever write reviews but I've just been so taken aback by how bad this place is that I want to warn fellow travellers not to go there. The dining area looks appealing but the food is foul. I ordered a seafood pizza that was made with the cheapest frozen seafood you can possibly buy. This "food" was topped... More

The place my husband chose wasn't open and we found ourselves without a reservation on a Saturday night in Palermo. If you are visiting this lovely city, it has quite a lively street scene on a Saturday night and reservations are recommended. This was a case of wandering around through horses of people on the street, looking for something acceptable... More
