This is a nice small place in a little lovely square which serves local food (possibly with the island of Pantelleria style). It is simple but good: the pasta I had for lunch and the fish were simply presented but well prepared. Good wine list and warm but slow service.

When the lunch is finished, then arrives the bill : hand made, on a non-registered paper. I have given my card for the payement, but later on, the waiter came back saying that only cash is accepted. I asked then for a 'ricevuta fiscale'. I got one, but still hand made...... :-(

This restaurant does not have huge menu but it does serve great food and has a nice wine collection. The décor is casual but up market from your typical café. The owner serves on tables - provides great service and she is passionate about her restaurant.

After visiting the Oratorio di Santa Cita we stumbled upon this gorgeous restaurant for lunch. We enjoyed the location and our meal so much that we booked straight away to have tea there as well. That says a lot when you are in Palermo and there is such a choice of wonderful food to be had. If we were staying... More

This is a major find, new and exciting. A young couple, he in the kitchen, she running the front of the restaurant, have lovingly created a wonderful, all around experience in the off-the-beaten-track location near the S Dominica Church. The quality and variety of the food is far superior to any neighborhood restaurant we tried, and we tried many, with... More

My wife and I stumbled by this place and happy we did. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We loved the atmosphere sitting outside. The inside looked very nice. Great wine too!

This place looks great and staff were friendly but ultimately it was disappointing. When the plates are too large for the food they carry, when there's stripes of balsamic covering your meal you know you have come to a place that's about looks rather than content. The atmosphere is very very quiet, staff whispering to clients, all very middle class.... More

Fish pasta and seafood risotto were particularly nice. Lovely setting with beautiful tile work. Very close to the Oratorios.
