We were fatigued and looking for a place for lunch. After walking down the main shopping street and heading back to our hotel, we found this place. While talking us into trying this venue, the waiter was initially engaging. Once he sat us, however, his demeanor changed. The place was moderately busy. We had to ask for napkins and we... More

If you travel to Palermo, never ever go to that place for dinner. Quality of food is poor (you call this Pizza? Fries tasted like fish oil, mixed salat??? Hahaha) and a very arrogant waiter who made a sexistic choke about me ordering a bottle of water. Then 30 people spontaneously came for dinner and chaos began... they forgot our... More

Verry bad food!!!! I had a simple pasta with tomato sauce. The sauce was made from puréed tomatoes with lots of sugar. No salt no pepper nothing like that. sickening !!!!

Food is ok. Service is terrible. There were six of us eating we ordered dishes from menu and retau s nth served them approx 40 minutes later but with a gap of 15 minutes between the first as nd last of party to be served. E cause was th a t they were prepared by different chefs. Don't go here.

Big on price, small on quality. Nothing at all to recommend this place. Wine is only available by the (expensive)1/2 or full bottle. My grilled fish plate was probably the worst I've ever had in Italy..1 prawn, 1 small piece of whitefish, a very tough piece of calamari, and some dry octopus for 12 Euro. And the grilled vegetables were... More

My hotel was lovely and they told me this restaurant was owned by a friend & specialised in local Sicilian food. I was a bit wary but as the hotel was very good I decided to trust their recommendation. Big mistake. The waiter on the prowl getting people in was as nice as pie until I sat down and from... More

This is an excellent quality restaurant with very reasonable prices and a great menu. You may meet their "greeter" Sandro as you approach the restaurant; a very nice young man, with excellent English skills, who is immediately likeable. Our primary waiter, Giuseppi, and a young woman waiter, whose name I did not get, could not have been more pleasant or... More

This may be the worst restaurant we have ever been to!! Do NOT go here. People were getting up and leaving because their food arrived before getting cutlery or water. Food was sent to the wrong tables. The veal rolls were just croquette potatoes and foul. The tagliata was an off-cut and covered in rocket to hide it. This restaurant... More

We choose restaurant due to proximity to Hotel Palazzo Sitano. It was a bad choice. Posted menu had a great selection, but they had none of the food listed. Out of 10 species of fish listed only two were available. Not disclosed until after we made our dinner choices. They didn't even have sparkling water. They only offered two wines... More
