A good restaurant in Palermo with good food and very efficient staff. I'd say nothing unforgettable though.

One of the best meals on a recent trip to Sicily, Malta and Cyprus. Had a choice of two different restaurants on a tour and chose this one, based on convenience to the Best Western Ai Cavalieri and also the TripAdvisor Reviews. We were not disappointed! Dinner started with an excellent pasta followed by a very tasty and fresh sea... More

Four of us dined here twice in less than 24 hours. It is within a few steps of the Best Western ai Cavalieri. The first visit was for dinner- nice menu (many gluten free items) and wine list with knowledgeable, friendly and efficient server. All meals freshly prepared and delicious. Black Angus beef with parmesan sauce was outstanding as was... More

What a marvellous dining experience on our Wedding Anniversary ! So glad and thankful we got to this amazing but unassuming restaurant in such heavy rain that we never thought we would make it there. We were greeted as though we were royalty and our apologies for arriving late were met with smiles and gentle shrugs of understanding. After a... More

We were here for dinner, as it was a few doors down from the Best Western Cavalieri Hotel. Incredible food that is reasonably priced. We had the soup, a pasta dish, and the fish. All excellent quality and delicately prepared. My wife is usually not a fish fan, but enjoyed their offering. The main courses are mostly 16-17 Euro. The... More

We visited Season Canto for lunch. We had two pasta "Primi" and two orders each of the grilled fish, grilled chicken and grilled beef. Only the fish was good.

This restaurant is way better than the #1 trip advisor rated restaurant, which we also ate at. Delicious food and excellent service. Every item can be made gluten free, including the cassata and cakes. This was important to me as I have celiac disease. Extraordinary fish, octopus and eggplant dishes. Excellent sicilian wine. Our waiter spoke good english but was... More

The receptionist in our hotel recommended us to visit this restaurant, and since it was just around the corner we went. Although we came without a reservation and the restaurant was almost full, we were still invited to take a table. The service was quick and attentive, the food was really good (there was a very special local cheese -... More

This is a very nice place with innovative cooking.The food receives a certain twist by the chef which makes simple dishes more special. The restaurant has a nice size and was not loud at all. There is pleasant background music playing.
