Ate three evenings in a row at this great family restaurant. Pizzas are amazing, as are the desserts. Definitely try the house wines, very good quality and so reasonable. Look out for the accordion player, his rendition of the godfather theme will make you smile.

We visited that place while staying in Palermo, we tried different places but this one was definitely the best, pizza cake was just breathtaking and we definitely recommend this place. The staff speaks little English but it does give charm to this place ❤️

We sought out this place for lunch, after left another restaurant where they were very unfriendly. This restaurant turned out to be perfect! It was a very hot day, but we managed to cool down after walking all over Palermo in the heat, on the nice patio, shaded patio. The server was very friendly and fun, teasing us a little and trying to get us to speak more Italian! The pizza and pasta were fresh and delicious and we were offered complementary limoncello after our lunch. So happy we found this restaurant!

Food was more or less OK. But waiter was really hectic. When we didn't take any desert or coffee he offered the bill. Very bad style
