The restaurant is located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Palermo, which places it a bit off the beaten tourist track. Me and my partner had a nice dinner for a bit over 30 euros, which is cheaper than most places in Palermo.

Very difficult to find, but it was worth it! Perfect restaurant if you search for a place which is preferred by local sicilians. Our bill for 2 persons was 31 EUR (each of us had 2 courses + drinks).

We were recommended to go here. Thank goodness. So much choice and food so good. Excellent friendly service and not at all expensive. A wonderful evening.

Dining well in Ballaro... unique experience. I recommend this place, this food, these people (especially outside in summertime).
