Visited 2 times for dinner during our 3 days stay in Palermo. It doesn't looks so attractive from outside and inside area is simple but the food was excellent. We didn't want to go to any other place. House wine wasn't good so we tried...More

Recommended by the hotel in which I was staying, this restaurant has a buzz about it and serves good basic food. The buffet for appetizers looked good, though I opted for a heavy bean soup. The main courses were of the usual fare. Cooked to...More

This restaurant has a wide variety of Sicilian food. Their buffet had so many different dishes, it was hard to pick. This is a favorite of the locals.

26 € for pasta w/tomato & sardines, and soup w/tomato, clams & mussels plus 2 wines, fizzy water & bread; hard to find this place but worth the effort.

Tried the antipasto buffet heralded by Lonely Planet, but it was poorly tended with some dishes empty and other "hot" dishes left cold. Squid entree somewhat overcooked, though she liked her salad. Much better options in Palermo; in fact, the more we strayed from guide...More

Enjoyed our food selection. However, one of our party discovered a hair in their pasta dish and alerted the waitress . She then removed the half finished dish. We fully expected a replacement but as this didn't appear we questioned the waitress. She did not...More
