We visited the restaurant for dinner. Great effort has been made to make the surroundings appealing and it is a lovely premises. The staff are polite and professional and the food was first class. We shared a selection of Sicilian meats and cheeses for starter and for mains I had lamb and my wife had sea bass. The waiter was keen to point out that the fish would be cooked slightly rare in the middle but they would of course cook it the way she preferred it. She asked that it be coked slightly longer and the result was a fish that she thoroughly enjoyed. Desert was an innovative take on cheesecake and a chocolate soufflé. A really nice bottle of wine accompanied the meal. Cost including aperitifs, water and bread was about 90 Euros. Well worth it. Recommended.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. The atmosphere was quiet, service was quick and good. Both the wine list and the menu were interesting. My partner's risotto and the pesto octopus were really nice and creatively presented. However, my sea bream with puff pastry was completely raw inside, which ruined the meal for us. Very disappointing.

Three brothers run this hip but unpretentious restaurant in the old town. The pulpo antipasti was tender and delicious. The pasta stuffed with smoked chicken was excellent as well. Highly recommend.

The previous reviews of this fine restaurant speak for themselves. Three brothers have created an enterprise that they clearly cherish, and every facet - from food to wine to service to decor and ambience speaks of this care.

This is Italian with a twist, but not so much of a twist that it becomes something else. For example, my bufala had the listed pasta with pesto inside it. The bream came in little pastry bowls. The tastes are all Italian, but the style is today's Italy, not nonna's cooking.

The service was exceptional. They humoured our Italian, answered our questions and were attentive without being intrusive. Make sure this goes on your list of 'must visits' in Palermo - just after the Duomo and Monreale. Actually, just after Duomo!

We had here a very pleasant dinner. The personnel is very kind the quality excellent.
Also the wine of sicilian wine is great.
We were with two children and the personnel has taken care of them first.

Only one note that doesn't change the opinion of the place. At the entrance, it is places a creen to protect the people from wind, when the restaurant doors are opened. A family was going out and a child, accidentally, has moved the screen which has fallen over the neck of one of the guest of our table. It was painful for the person and dangerous, if you consider that my child was sitting instead few minutes before. We strongly recommend the restaurant to fix that screen
