As with Marmite which polarises people... You either love it or hate it !! It seems that this Restaurant has the same effect... I've just come back from it and am now reading reviews that I don't recognise as being connected to the experience I enjoyed. My Involtini was the finest I've ever had in Italia - and I first...

Overall it is a good place to dine in Palermo. They have tried to keep the authenticity of the place. It is filled with pictures, decors, etc. The staff tries to keep it very formal, but actually falls a bit into unwarranted seriousness which at times ca be a little bit weird! Of course language is an issue. If you... More

The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the service is cordial and attentive, and best of all for me, many vegetarian options. Highly recommended for those with somewhat restrictive options. If you eat fish, you will have many more options as well. The food is excellent and understated. I gad the penne alla norma. Outstanding! The eggplant appetizer was amazing as well!

This place offers a comfortable dining experience with a busy decor. We got complimentary aperitivi on arrival and the food was delicious. The service was very attentive but a bit too keen to clear plates as soon as we had the last mouthful. The menu is quite extensive and we recommend this restaurant for a true Sicilian experience!

Wonderful environment, looks like an Italia Villa. Local flavored and great service. Pannelle as appetizer with a good Caponata, too. Risotto all frutti de mare. A great night!

We found this restaurant purely by accident. We just happened to be walking by and decided to give it a shot. Good result! We decided to eat on their patio which was very well protected from the intermittent rain. They started off by giving us a free house cocktail. It was made from Prosecco, lemon sorbet, OJ and an orange... More

It doesn't get any better than this, these were the words my husband used to describe his Salt Bass, I echoed the same for my swordfish tomato eggplant pasta! It's so nice to order and receive exactly what you expect, this place delivered perfectly! The artichoke pie and the eggplant pie was delish! Authentic food great service and reasonable prices!...
