They have been included in Michelin guide for a few years now; and for good reason! We found this place a few steps away from our hotel in the center of Palermo by chance and decided to book a table for dinner after seeing the Michelin recommendation. The restaurant is small and cozy, yet classy. The staff, neat, attentive, polite,... More

This Ristorante had Michelin Stars all over the door. We experienced Old World Service with multiple wait staff, the fish of the day and desert cart were both brought to the table side. They even scraped the crumbs off the table cloth with a razor ( I had not seen that in a while) between courses. The entrees each came... More

This bustling family-run restaurant offers the best in fresh fish simply prepared and attractively served. The pasta with clams and with shrimp is excellent. Service is friendly and super-attentive. Complimentary prosecco. Excellent wine list.

This modest appearing place was recommended as a good spot for its fish dishes which my friends wanted one more time before leaving Sicily! Good choice, as both the fresh fish of the day and the fried fish plate were both highly praised by my friends. I had pasta which was also delicious and attractively presented. But, it's not only...

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge and it was outstanding. The food and the service were top notch!! Fresh fish and seafood were excellent. We had baby squid (never had this before) and it was mouth watering. Whatever we ordered was delicious. It is a family run business and they certainly know what they are doing. And the bread!!!!...

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel which can sometimes be unreliable. However, it turned out to be a great choice. Very old and busy with a local menu and wine list. The fish was fresh and offered on a platter at the table before we ordered. Our table of four all ordered very different dishes from prawns to white... More

We were greeted -- and seated -- by the restaurant's owner, who guided us to excellent choices from the menu. We ate there twice during our visit to Palermo in May, and each time had delicious antipasti and pasta dishes.But the hit of both visits was the chef's preparation of our choices from the catch of the day. The fish... More

We were very friendly welcomed, the staff is very well qualified, however the athmosphere appears a bit stiff. As a complimentary dish fresh gorgonzola creme was served along with bread which was very tasty. We had risotto and pasta.The pasta was really good and the risitto nothing special. We think that the restaurant is specialised more in fish. The prices... More

Recommended by our concurrence at Villa Igeia, this restaurant is clearly the family affair as we were told. Our rservation was 8.00pm and we were alone until close to 9.00pm when the restaurant filled with locals. There is no doubt the team at Lo Scuderio make every attempt to offer a Michelin experience, sadly they miss the boat perhaps mainly... More

Recommended by our concierge at Hotel Villa Igiea this restaurant never failed to disappoint. From posted reviews we looked forward to an excellent dinner and was underwhelmed by the service (Michelin rated?) and the meal - both veal dishes. Maybe we should have had the fresh fish. But we had excellent fish the last four nights and wanted a change.... More
