A family run restaurant with true family values The welcome drink and nibbles of fresh bread and delicious dips The delicious salad with white anchovies on top, the tasty seafood dishes are what every hungry diner craves for But leave room for the tiramisu ... you won't regret it, it is heavenly

Pasta with mixed seafood was absolutely loaded with seafood. They brought out the sea bass to show us the freshness before cooking it. Wonderful wine recommendation for wine. All at a reasonable price.

We were refered here by a local and we were not disappointed. Very good food, well presented and reasonably priced. Very friendly and helpful staff. Don't walk by as it doesn't look like much from the street. It was full when we went with what looked like locals to us.

Run by a lovely young couple – he cooks, she waits table – this place was a find! Diego is rightly proud of his ingredients, his family recipes, and his skill in the kitchen. Lunch began with complimentary aperitifs of wine, ginger, and strawberry and a plate of crisp toast with two dipping sauces: tomato and pepperoncino and a homemade... More

Fair play to the owners for doing their best. An aperitif was a nice touch. The roasted figs were basically fig jam on top of pecorino cheese slices. Pasta was quite overcooked and turned into soft mash. Seabass was good but small. Service was very friendly. However we noted the restaurant became empty by 9:30pm. We did not spot a... More

After wandering through the less illustrious side of Palermo, we finally found this small restaurant. Worth the effort for sure as inside the tables are simply but beautifully laid and the staff are so welcoming. We were treated with such care and enjoyed a welcome drink and specialty bread and dips. We all enjoyed our main courses. The menu, although... More
