For a nice lunch while touring the old part of Palermo, this restaurant is ideal. Many wonderful choices, great service and authentic food. Not at all a tourist trap!

26 € for pasta w/tomato & sardines, and soup w/tomato, clams & mussels plus 2 wines, fizzy water & bread; hard to find this place but worth the effort.

On a walking tour took advantage of Lonely Planet recommendation and were very pleased. Friendly service and one of the few remaining and delightful buffet antipasti with many local dishes. The pasta with sword fish shrimp and zucchini was very good as was the spaghetti...More
