Amazing restaurant right in centre, we had the tasting menu. Very good service throughout. Without doubt worth a visit if you are a foody!

This restaurant aims high and mainly achieves it. A beef tartare starter was under-seasoned but cleverly accompanied by frozen gazpacho: it sounds odd but it worked. A sous vide tomato with quinoa was oddly accompanied by an almost raw crayfish. The place is rather stiff...More

Quality of the food was superb, we chose the "menu degustazione" with 4 plates + dessert. Service was excellent and the wine list was simply astonishing. Price was more than right considering the one Michelin star category. Awesome in any way.

The food is delicious and I can't find any reason to criticize the service. The selection of Ragusano cheese is my favorite for starters. You will love it :)

Fantastic experience with wonderful ambience and the extra touches that make this a first class restaurant. We had a number of courses and between each we received taste morsels that enhanced the experience. We all enjoyed our varied dishes.

Style, decor and service are excellent and the wine list is comprehensive. So it's a shame that the food is so uninteresting. My white fish and prawn balls were simply blitzed white fish and prawns strained to remove any texture and then served as anonymous...More

This apparently is the only Michelin star in Palermo. I admit that it definitely must be hard to open a restaurant like that in a country where people are quite attached to their traditional (and delicious) dishes and quantity is definitely more important than quantity...More

Dress code is casual. It's expensive for what it is. It has a Michelin Star and it doesn't deserve it.
