I visited this restaurant and I tasted really delicious pasta with octopus then ever had before and I still remember it. Good wine list, super kind Chef&Staff.I highly suggest to visit this place with a nice walk in Terrasini on lungomare.

We have chosen this restaurant basing on Michelin Guide recommendations and because it’s very near to the Palermo Airport where we were finishing our journey and had to return a car. Otherwise we would never visit Terrasini, which is a sleepy and very unassuming seaside...More
