Just off the main road, away from the pricey tourist restaurants, we came across this little restaurant at lunchtime. The buffet had a good selection of meat & vegetables and accompanied by half a litre of wine for 8.50 euros, who could complain?

We happen to land here for lunch following some random online recommendation which proved to be a huge mistake. Very mediocre food - antipasti obviously cooked at least few days ago and what we got on the plate titled as pasta con le Sarde was...More

I've been here many times over the past 5 years or so, and always look forward to coming back, but it's changed for the worse unfortunately. They've spruced the place up but the food just isn't as good as it once was. Such a shame....More

We went to this restaurant expecting "the best seafood in Palermo" but that was far from what was received. Starting with an antipast that was quite watery and flavourless compared to the other antipasti dishes we had tasted prior to going to Zia Pina. We...More

This is an unexpected gem, not far from the Piazza Garafello in the Vucciria district of Palermo--and is famous among locals, especially for its pasta with clams and/or mussels. Seating is best outdoors but inside is fine on a cold day. House wine and beer...More

This is, hands down. the place in Palermo for lunch. There is no doubt in my mind that if you seek real food with a magical touch, experience and no fuzz what so ever.

I have visited "Zia Pina" many times. I always get my ample fill from the delicious buffet with Sicilian delights. Most dishes are vegetarian. All the varieties from the buffet are superb. Often a couple based on super-fresh sardines. The other courses are average but...More

This is a great place. You get a buffet with about 15 or so different items so you choose what you want and pile it on your plate. Mainly fish and vegetable snacks. Sardine meat balls for example, very nice. After that there is a...More

We came here by chance. The first time we have been eating fried seafood and pasta. The taste and quality were just perfect. Why we decided to come day after. And again: seafood was fresh, the selection incredible. The hosts were friendly, the prices low.
