We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in and were not disappointed. Located just off the main road, we wouldn't have come across it without the recommendation. You have to ring a bell and the staff come up from downstairs to unlock the door and welcome you in. The restaurant is located downstairs in a well... More

I just didn't feel happy here, they also did not accomodate my food issues, its has a look and feel for the upscale high end locals, which is good as its not a tourist trap, but I just din't love the menu or how it was prepared, I felt the waiters had an attitude issue and all this for a... More

It feels authentic and the food is great. The waiter we had, Michael, was amazingly friendly. The wine list is good but do ask which year they'll bring.

We've eaten here more than once over the years. Each time it has been delightful. Wonderful food, artfully presented with impeccable white linen service. Romantic. Delicious. Worth the trek up Via Roma!

The food was the best we had in Palermo. Service is top of the line. Not too expensive. Ordering the catch of the day for two was a bit pricey but worth it. Great location & interior was lovely. I highly recommend it. Best to make reservations.

Down a flight of stairs into a formal white table clothed room, with old world waiters. Service efficient, but formal as well. Some of our group had a fish baked and crusted with salt, a Mediterranean speciality, it seems. I had pasta with shrimp and mushrooms which was a bit bland. Close to our hotel.Only one other table booked, so... More

Great service and great Sicilian food which comes along with friendly English speaking waiters. We was first greeted with bread and a sparkling orange tasting wine. Food doesn't take too long to get to the table. At the end we was given a shot of, what I guess was, chocolate liquor, nice!

The restaurant was recommended by the concierge of our hotel and it was an amazing experience! We had the pasta with shrimps and carrots, the risotto with oyster shrimps and cocos and the raw fish. Each dish was very special and just outstanding! A must when you are in Palermo!

After a disappointing dinner the night before we pressed the Villa Igiea concierge for a welcoming and local restaurant serving creative and excellent food. BelleOtero Ristorante was Salvatore's spot on suggestion. Walking thru the hip neighborhood bursting with young people enjoying the evening, our expectations were heightened. From the moment we were greeted at the door (after we found the... More
