Prices are pretty ok but the quality of food is poor. Caponata was partly warm and partly cold similarly to potatoes which came next to the slightly overcooked fish. Octopus in risotto was chewy but the worst thing was the hair which I found in it. Definitely wouldn't recommend.

I was here with a group of friends. Everything was well cooked, what you expect from a Palermo restaurant not far from Vucciria market. Delicious appetizers. Good selection of deserts. The wine list needs some help.

This was our most dissapointing meal over a 7 day holiday in sicily. The place was mostly empty at 7:30pm. The food arrived in small portions, cold and tasteless. The beer options overpriced. The roof terrace has no view other than random people's rooms. The menu is bits of scruffy a4 paper and each person received a slightly different set... More

I feel bad leaving anywhere a 2star rating but it feels necessary. After reading the reviews me and my boyfriend had high hopes for this place, especially as we have had a couple of dissapointing dinners already. But the truth is the place is trying to be fine dining when it isn't. The beer is over priced as are a... More

We found the prices competitive and good value for money. Food was delicious and full of flavour. The inkfish spagetti is a must-try Sicilian speciality! But the service was a bit slow and could have been better.

This restaurant is tucked away in a little side road and to look at from the outside is not much. Inside the entrance way is small and appears to have a small interior but it has 2 floors and can accommodate a lot of people. We sat downstairs (by the toilet, which we did not notice at first) and our... More

The set menu is cheap but good quality! Delicious appetizers, good pasta, and I got the pork which was cooked perfectly and topped with a great sauce

The owner likes to experiment with traditional local dishes, like an incredible cheesecake/cassata hybrid. I heartily recommend the excellent appetizers and the paccheri with wild pig ragout. Follow the owner's recommendations, you won't regret it.

If you are in Palermo, you really have to visit this restaurant. Not only is the food exceptionally nice, reasonably priced, it has a stunning roof terrace and really friendly staff. My family and I ate here twice on our visit to Palermo and we loved it and they even are brilliant for catering for people who are gluten free.... More
