The owner hates the world, but has an even bigger hatred for foreigners! It's indescribable what happened there, but it involved direct confrontation. He simply doesn't care if he makes a scene in his own restaurant. The waiters' service is below average, and they basically treat you like the boss wants them to treat you. Also, they tend to rob...

This place is very popular, it has a fantastic menu and is very good value. It's packed every night and you really need to book for the evening but for lunch you can just turn up. Despite this, we had a bad experience....... My girlfriend ordered spaghetti with ricci and gamberi (sea urchins and prawns), she liked it but the... More

I was a bit discouraged by negative reviews but decided to take a chance because my B&B hosts recommended this place. I visited alone during winter off-season and was able to find a seat because I arrived right before opening time of 13:00 but the place quickly filled up. The menu is not friendly to non-Italians so you might want... More

We didn't find the staff too helpful, just anxious to take your order. Menus in another language are always challenging, and so was theirs. We had the house antipasto which was average, the pasta with shrimp and (I think) zucchini which we can do better at home and stuffed squid - a bad choice on our part. Oh well. Many... More

We were recommended this restaurant last year when we visited Palermo and decided to try it again. The food and service are great and such character. Will return next time we are in Palermo.

Fabulous seafood and meat, love caponata di spada (aubergine with tomato, capers and swordfish), insalata di mare (seafood salad with tender squid and mussels), sea urchin pasta, Cotolrtta (veal cutlet), spinach (huge portion, only 1 euro) and mandorla (almond dessert). Everything is delicious, all the macho staff are friendly, bonus point!! We visited this restaurant 3 consecutive days during our... More

ここはパレルモで一番お気に入りのレストランです。新鮮なシーフードを限りなくリーズナブルな値段で提供しています。シーフードサラダ、白身魚のフライをナスとトマトで煮込んだもの、ボンゴレ、ウニと海老のパスタ、ビールとお水で、わずか30数ユーロ。しかも味がしっかりしていて、量もたっぷりで、はまります。高いお金を出して、他のレストランに行くのが馬鹿らしいなり、常連になりました! This restaurant is my most favourite in Palermo. We have ordered seafood salad and fried fish and aubergine in tomato sauce for starters and spaghetti with sea urchin and spaghetti with clams for main dishes, plus beer, water and coffee. The price was 32, 50 euros. Surprisingly reasonable. And all the dishes are excellent, well flavored and substantial. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local & it did not disappoint as it was our first meal in Sicily. They gave us a menu but then told us to refer to the menu written on a chalk board in Italian. Our Italian was limited & the staff did not speak English. Fortunately, we sat next to a women who... More

Found this place thanks to the TripAdvisor reviews, otherwise I would never have found it, as it's hidden in a dark little street parallel to Via Maqueda. If you're coming for diner (haven't done lunch), be sure to be very early as the trattoria very quickly fills with local people who clearly know this place very well, or even better,... More
