“Great food!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Go for the antipasti and try them all! I loved all of them and almost regretted not only ordering them as they were all very great. As was the cannelloni I had as main course, but not as great. Service lacks a bit, but nothing bad. Very fair priced!

“Average”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This restaurant was right outside our hotel (Cristal Palace) and came recommended. The food was fine, nothing special, quite small portions. The atmosphere was very flat, we were sat inside though as no space outside. Plus points for convenience.

“Nice experience in Palermo”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Situated in a quiet side street of the Via Roma, with a terrace surrounded by green, inside there is a cosy and originally decorated restaurant room. We came there on our second evening in Palermo, returned back the day after and made a reservation for our coming back to Palermo after about 3 weeks. And we enjoyed the third dinner as much as the first one. Three times we choose the menu formula 3 courses (antipasto - primo – dolce or antipasto - primo – secondo), very cheap for what you get : tasteful, original and more than enough to us.
The restaurant opens at 19:00, after 20:30 it becomes difficult to get seated without reservation …
Don’t forget to taste the excellent ‘Caponatina di melanzane con cous cous al pistacchio’ with a glass of excellent bianco bio Rallo Evrò (14 EUR a bottle : a bargain)!

“Great experience”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We came here based on TA reviews plus the fact that it was near our hotel. It happened to be the best meal that we had in Palermo. 6 of us shared a host of appetizers and pastas and each dish was better than the next. The main courses were equally as good. Atmosphere, service...all top notch and reasonable prices as well

“A lovely experience”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This restaurant is a rare jewel of a place in Palermo. Whether you are a regular or a visitor you will be warmly greeted. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, yet smart enough for a business dinner.

The food is consistently of a high quality, good value and delicious. Don't miss lunch here - it's one of the best in the city.

We've been eating here each summer when coming for holidays, and have always been very pleased with the food and service. It's a restaurant we are always happy to take friends and family to and know that we'll have a great dining experience.

Highly recommended!
