We have been at this place twice during our five-days-stay in Palermo: One evening just to have some cocktails after a concert - service was excellent, very good atmosphere, got even warm appetizers for free, and so we decided to have dinner there on the next evening.

Beautiful quiet garden setting for a very nice lunch. Delicious grilled swordfish with steamed broccoli. The highlight may have been the cannolo accompanied by a Malvasia from Capofaro. The staff and the owner were very cordial and I look forward to a Sunday brunch. Grazie e complimenti.

The Acanto is a cocktail bar and restaurant but when we visited in October the emphasis was primarily on dinner, and the cocktail bar remained unobtrusive.

Romantic apartment on the ground floor of a building of 'eight hundred, a few meters from Piazza Politeama, with dedicated rooms inside both the cocktail bar or in the restaurant. Particular attention should be paid to the interior room reserved for the intimate restaurant and well-appointed, very comfortable and romantic. Outside, a fantastic garden among these palaces of the end '800, makes ACANTO a magical place, where you can drink an aperitif or a dinner, even outdoors in the city center. Ideal for business lunches and dinners with friends or romantic. The equipped garden of retractable awning, remains usable for all year round.
