Some local friends suggested me this place. I was kinda excited since the restaurant looked so good and the location is breathtaking. Unfortunately that's it. We waited 20 minutes to get the appetizers and the portions were poor and food was chewy. They probably forgot our main courses (they arrived after 45 minutes and our pasta was completely cold and...

Place was suggested by our host n Palermo, so we checked it out. Service was especially bad. We had to ask for everything (including cutlery) several times. We ordered pasta with lobster. Food was so so. Octopus was so bad, that we did not even finish our dish. Pasta with lobster was ok, but arrived rather cold and was not... More

Food was ok. The house white and red are appalling. We asked for the bill the waiter refused and bought over 2 deserts 10 minutes later and then tried charging us for them. We refused them! Awful service!

Fresh well cooked sea food, best place in 20km range and as for me is... More

Have visited this restaurant a number of times over the years and have to say that I now find it very hit and miss regarding the quality and freshness of the food! If you arrive later in the evening sometimes you can be made to feel like you are disturbing the staff. They don’t always have what’s on the menu... More

Really ideal location by the beach. Fresh fish, reasonable price, can get really busy in peak season.

Located at Mondello, near Palermo, it's a typical family run trattoria just two minutes from a sandy beach. It gets busy at weekends so arrive early or book ahead. Specials include octopus salad, mussels, clams and its famous sea urchins fresh from the Mediterranean. Ask for a table out on the terrace which has a lovely view of the beach... More

The restaurant is situated just along the road along the sea, therefore it has a very good view if you can ignore the traffic noises. They have very good pasta and pizza. House wine was okay, although 7 euro per half liters. But! , we dared to try their antipasties octopus luciano and sardine balls sounds like very authentic. Although... More
