We had a really nice meal here. Fried sardines and mussels gratinee starters, fish mains. Service was very friendly and helpful (the board needed translating). Good wines by the glass. Booking essential.

We had an amazing experience at Osteria Mercede. The dinner was delicious and the service was great. We made a reservation a few days in advance. I would definitely recommend a visit.

we were recommended by a local friend. we did not have reservation and they were full. we agreed to have dinner in one hour (at the end we stayed for an hour and a half without being hurried) and were given a table at the entrance

theservice is friendly and redy to help and make suggestions

a sort of octopus cake was great. the tagliatelle with lobster, excellent. a grilled blue fish (can't remember the name in italian, probably mackerel) was superb

the wine of the house was good and cheap

the price was more than reasonable

recommended, but do not forget to make a reservation

This restaurant is on a darker street if at night due to trees blocking lights out .it has a nautical feel with med blue feel .several small rooms with tables
The menus is on blackboard with good choices for antipasta ,primo,second
Portions are good sized so if going all 3 you need to be hungry!
We shared between 2 the antipasta mussels and clams very nice and very tasty broth
We shared a pasta primo prawn pesto .it was lovely great prawns very fresh not overcooked
Second we had octopus and gave bean and baked sea bream .both very nice
Only down side was Maybe service a bit lack lustre and little attention paid to us on leaving but food good .that was why 4 not 5 stars

It’s clear why this is the top rated seafood restaurant in Palermo. Each dish we had was delicious. The Totinodi di Bascaloa or cod with potato appetizer was delicate and flavorful. The mixed seafood pasta was another delight with fresh tomatoes and bites of lobster, mussels, clams and squid. The swordfish with fennel and oranges another light, yet bursting with flavor dish. We enjoyed the almond parfait dessert. It was just wonderful
