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 spoke English and helped me to choose something to suit my taste: a delicious tomato and pistachio pasta. Wines, beers and deserts were all good value for money too. Lovely place worth a visit.

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 as good – and as much shellfish as sea bream. Friendly service. My only warning is there's very little but seafood here, so don't come if you are looking for meats.

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.

This restaurant was near to us and recommended by our appartment owner. The first time we tried to get in we were only offered a table inside on the mezzanine floor so we declined but booked a table outside for a future night.
The litre of wine seemed very small and indeed we ordered another half litre which seemed to be the same but the bill itemised 1.5 litres. The mussell and clam spaghetti was a bit of a disappointment with only a few sea fish and about a quarter unopened.
However the main courses were better with a lovely sea bream and fried calimari described as the best ever. They encouraged me to see the desserts although there was only one in the counter when I went inside. We shared one, a tiny sponge and apple affair which was not good value. When the bill came they had charged us for two spaghetti rather than one shared but put it right when it was pointed out. 50 euros
