It is a very traditional restaurant in the center of Palermo. We had one of the best carbonara dishes I have ever had in Sicily. We also had all the traditional antipasti of sicily which were recommended by the owner - sweet cute typical sicilian guy - and the the pizza is also great!!! thin crusted and perfectly cooked!!! Great place to have lunch or dinner

Note to self, read the other reviews on here BEFORE trying a restaurant. Pizzas were okay but my starter hadn't been cooked properly and trust me potato croquettes with a still-frozen centre are bloody awful. The waiter took them away and brought some others that he just chucked onto my plate without a hint of apology.

Indifferent staff, insipid food. Try somewhere else.

Monday night and the restaurants we liked (particularly il vespro) were shut. There seemed to be a few people inside looking happy and so we thought it would do. The waiter was pleasant enough but soon we noticed that the other tables were actually a German tour group, not local or individuals. And thoughts of little chef or motorway cafes somehow entered my mind. The tour group was so rowdy I don't suppose they noticed what they were eating. The seafood risotto was very much like a reconstituted packet one, the fritto misto pesce was like fried rubber bands, too tough for my husband who gave up. I had a glass of wine. Trying to get the bill took ages and when it came it was so huge, we decided to query it and found we had been charged for a whole bottle of wine. Service and a cover charge were already included as well. A great pity as this was our last evening in Palermo and we and enjoyed such nice meals elsewhere. Even it it is Monday, keep looking for somewhere else....

This looked like a ice restaurant where we could eat A la carte - veal etc.
We arrived 7:15 and were offered a table for two near the door . Nobody else was there but some people were waiting outside. Although the menu was in Italian the waiter helped/guided us to what we should have. The veal was awful, pre-sliced and swimming in so called sauce. Part of my husband's mixed grill had been reheated. Whilst we waited for our main course about 80people arrived - a business do. No one was interested in us at all or whether we liked the food, so we paid and left quickly. Very disappointing. At the very least he could have warned us they were expecting a big party - better not to have accepted other people that night.anyway with that standard of cooking - DO NOT GO THERE.
