This is really, really a Sicilian family run restaurant. You may meet the whole family and trip over the grandchildren's toys. The menu is very much focused on very fresh, simply-prepared local seafood, although there are some pasta options. Four of us had dinner including...More

Food is sicilian, family owned and run, very friendly and reasonable on a quiet street off a busy square. We would definitely go back. NOT FANCY if you are looking for special night.

As a seafood lover this was my perfect spot to take a break: from the antipasti to the pasta-based dishes featuring prawns (which I had), and other seafood. I'm not an expert drinker, but the white wine was fine ... and the limoncello was from...More

This restaurant is a little gem located in the old market area of Palermo. It offered fresh tasty seafood dishes and delightful pasta options starting from only E5. Clearly the owner here is passionate about food. The staff and family were extremely friendly and generous,...More
