We stumbled on this restaurant after finding others closed on a Tuesday near our Hotel and am so glad we did. Although I'm not a massive seafood fan, my husband is. He thoroughly enjoyed the 15 euro tourist menu (swordfish was delicious). A lovely lady...More

We came after drinks and antipasto nearby. Fettuccini with salmon and spinach, sea bream alla scoglia, white wine, grappa, and limoncello for €38. We split both courses, which were generously portioned. Fettuccini was redolent of the sea, rich and delicious. The sea bream was almost...More

A great local restaurant. Fantastic Food, Service and Atmosphere. Owner very friendly and helpful. Fresh seafood and pasta, the best cannoli in Sicily and all at very reasonable price. A great find, a visit here is a must when in Palermo.

To be true: you can have a hard time looking for a restaurant in Palermo that serves tasty, fresh food. We’ve found it: La Gondola. It is not nouvelle cuisine, but serves basic, uncomplicated Sicilian seafood and especially fish in the best way. Highly recommended!
