Great restaurant run by a young Italian couple. The wife makes the most amazing pesto, fresh and nutty. The pasta alla vongole was also absolutely delicious. Great food, amazing service, cozy atmosphere.

We had red mullet as an antipasto, which was perfectly cooked and spaghetti alla vongole with a very generous portion of clams and spaghetti alla ricci, not the cheapest dish on the menu but worth every penny! Altogether a great, unpretentious restaurant.

Long overdo review but seafood is incredible at this restaurant! I am not a fan of uni but it was so sweet and creamy here that it changed my mind. Unbelievable! We had the uni bruschetta, fried baby octopus, uni pasta, and pistachio pesto pasta....More

I feel like I completely remember the credit card stickers on the door, but I can't say with certainty because we paid with cash. Sorry

Sergio and Angela Spano run the restaurant since 2004. Both come from families of restaurateurs who have passed on their passion and love for the traditional cuisine of Palermo, the same passion that today move in their work, seeking the scents and flavors of the past and selecting all the raw materials with care. Caponata, Sardinian warbler, daisies ca n'ciova, squid ink pasta with sea urchins, fresh fish of the Mediterranean, they explode like a vortex of fragrances giving you a blast from the past.
