Certainly off the beaten track up a cute alley, Degustibus nevertheless offers nothing much more than any typical tourist restaurant. Only handed English menus (which are often poorly interpreted) we got an Italian one too for much needed clarification. Food was mixed. Entrees were seafood...More

Wonderful calm restaurant we found at lunchtime. Too bad the weather did not agree, as their al fresco tables are making for a very romantic setting. Food was excellent, as was service.

Away from the crowds of Palermo, by the port, you enter under a Roman arch. I can tell you the chef knows how to cook. Look the pictures select something that you like. The wine list is good so try something that fits your budget,...More
