“Modern Restaurant. Good Quality, Good Food, Good Service.”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

The shared starter was a platter of dressed tomatoes and salad with an ENORMOUS mozarella of amazing freshness. For the main course the only thing to have is grilled filet of buffalo which just melts in the mouth.

The dessert menu is varied with some very nice local dishes but after a starter and main course I would have liked something like sorbet. That aside, a great meal.

“At last food that is different from the typically ''Siciliana menu.'' identically found in every other restaurant we visited in”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We come from a seaside town and have been spoilt by fresh seafood simply cooked or as sashimi. Each of the 6 tripadvisor reccomended restaurants we visited had similar menus with similar cooking techniques perhaps they fool some of the people some of of the time. BUT FLB offered their own menu cooked in their own style. All four of us voted it as the best restaurant we found in Palermo we only checked TripAdvisor when we got home.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Pretty average chain restaurant. I would have rated this restaurant as 2-stars had it not been for the very helpful and friendly manager, a young man from Romania who was a delight. My wife had returned her pasta dish because it just wasn't hot. The manager supervised its return back to the kitchen and was concerned about our satisfaction. The dish still wasn't hot but he was such a nice fellow that we overlooked it. You can do better in Palermo.

“Forget this Place”
Reviewed 9 January 2013 via mobile

We had dinner in this place once and will certainly not go back. The pizza they served was mediocre at best and the service was substandard. The person waiting on our table was outright rude. He tried to remove plates while we were still eating from them reaching across the table. When we complained he decided not to pay attention to us any longer. So we had to leave without having coffee or desert.
