I came on the recommendation of a Sicilian I had the pleasure of passing my flight from London with. I didn't know what to expect but I was delighted to find myself outside a beautiful historic building in a plaza. I dined upstairs and was the first to arrive, it very quickly filled with local families enjoying their Easter break.... More

Great food, great atmosphere. Typical Palermo food, at very reasonable prices. You can seat and have a long lunch or just grab something in the go. A place to surely visit while in Palermo.

We had a couple of selections from their "street food" menu. The individual foods ranged from hot and tasty to cold-in-the-middle and warm on the outside, which was a bit of a worry as that particular dish was Arancia - a breaded, rice-filled concoction with ragu sauce in the middle. Tasty, but cold rice isn't always pleasant and can be... More

I loved every bite here. We ordered a variety of items--street food selections, pastas and a meat and cheese platter. All were scrumptious and their house red wine was a winner. Fun atmosphere and accommodating staff too. A sure winner.
