Not wanting to travel a long way from the hotel for dinner, our hotel recommended this restaurant which was about 100 metres away. Small, yet roomy, this restaurant was interesting with a dynamic (presumably) owner who welcomed us warmly, gave us some interesting books about Palermo to read while we waited for our meal. The menu was fairly constrained but... More

Located in the old part of the city, serving local food elevated to a gourmet level, which we really enjoyed. Family run Resturant and great guidance in picking the right food combination. (Pasta was so delicious we forgot to take pictures)

The hotel recommended this family restaurant - one of the few places that offered a la carte for New Year's Eve. In fact I never saw the menu, as I was happy to follow the friendly owners recommendations (something I would not normally do, but the prices were reasonable). Had a potato with swordfish starter, the following risotto was excellent,... More

Owner was extremely friendly and gracious, gave recommendations for places to visit. We had fresh fish appetizers, pasta, and steak entrées - everything was wonderful. Be sure to try the bread sticks - best ever! Homemade hazelnut ice cream topped off the meal.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel staff, and upon looking at this restaurant tripadvisor rank (130+ at that time), we wondered if its really worth going there. We had a time gap for lunch and decided to give Sambuca a visit. The restaurant is in the beautiful Kalsa district, right on via alloro. It is modernly designed... More

This was a delightful evening in so many ways. Alessandro at Abatellis Luxury recommended this restaurant. He promised it was very good. And so it was. We were the only couple in the restaurant. We picked a good night; it was packed the night before. Our host Vincenzo was so very kind to us! This is a family owned restaurant.... More

Our first night in Palermo. The hotel recommended the restaurant and they were right. The owners welcomed us and made great recommendations. The pastas were perfect al dente. Cacio and Pepe with lime and anchovies was amazing. The tagliatelle with porcini and speck flavorful.

A good restaurant if not a great one. Friendly staff provide a warm welcome but the decor is modern and a bit stark to give the place a the right ambience. The food, however, was excellent and whilst I simply had a steak, it was beautifully cooked and the sauce perfectly judged. Not the restaurant's fault, but a party of... More
