Description: Old Town, creative cuisine Tradition and innovation, experience and continuous search for new combinations. The creative cuisine is never out of nowhere, the ingredients and techniques of traditional cuisine, especially of a land rich in flavors such as ours Sicily, are always a starting point, a cultural background, a continuous path that leads to new experiences flavor. Contrasts that come out is often concealed the success of an unforgettable recipe. Three rooms - a sort of "projection of an internalized landscape" according to the description of the author of the project - will welcome you in a comfortable and seductive where the sight, taste, smell, and feel of our dishes will involve in a contamination of the senses, even your hearing and enjoying them... you can hear "The Eighth Note".

What a great way to end our stay in Palermo. The service was great - very friendly yet professional. The food was delicious as well. We had the salmon ceviche, duck, scallops and chocolate soufflé with a bottle of wine for about 75 euros. This is an intimate little restaurant so definitely make reservations.

What a surprise! After two weeks of eating traditional sicilian food, I was ready to try something new and this restaurant was a welcome addition! My husband and I can be difficult foodie critics and we ate in this restaurant two nights in a row. Every dish was a new adventure-the polpette (meatballs) were delicious and the special truffle pasta was out of this world. It is definitely a good idea to make a reservation as there are many tourists and locals alike trying to get a table in this small 10 table? restaurant. The service was also excellent. Whether in the era or not, this restaurant is worth a visit.

Lovely food, well presented, good service. We dined here on our 2nd night in Palermo and had not got used to the very large portions they serve here. We had a antipasto (fava soup with baby squid), unusual and very good, a primi (pasta with sea urchins) delicious and lamb as a secondo. The lamb was lovely, but was too full to appreciate it fully. No room for desert. This is a lovely restaurant, waiters very attentive, but not overly so, and we really recommend it.

The food is exceptional from classic Sicilian favorites to absolute edible works of art. The chef is incredible, original (and also extremely down to earth) and is always challenging to create something new. Definitely listen to the specials! As a huge foodie, who had a successful baking business in Los Angeles, I can assure you, everything at L'Ottava Nota is local, fresh, and fantastic!!!! When I have friends visiting from LA or NYC with discerning tastes, I always take them here. They're blown away!!! And fyi, the ambiance is really cool too...the lay out of this restaurant is straight out of Detail magazine. We generally go there for dinner, but they are also open for lunch most days too. Great for a romantic dinner or with group of friends. If you are in Palermo, only for one night....(but hopefully, more because I know, you WILL want to go back), than this is your restaurant!
