One of our best meals in all of Italy, not just Sicily! Luca, the owner, was friendly and kind and took great care with welcoming us and showing us the wine selection (on the walls!), the servers were warm and professional, but the food is truly the star here. Everything we ordered, from antipasti to primi to secondi, were delicious and thoughtful. The busiate with wild boar ragu was especially good, as were the seafood dishes. The bread was fantastic. My Italian is just a bit better than "restaurant Italian" and we were able to communicate comfortably (Luca speaks perfect English). A very memorable meal. Bonus: the restaurant is sandwiched between a caffe/pasticceria/gelateria and a wonderful bakery, both friendly with amazing selections. Such a lively corner in Mondello.

Visited this restaurant for a friend's birthday, it was a last minute find and we didnt book in advance. The front of house man 'with beautiful eyes' was acconidating even though the restaurant was fully booked. Amazing food and wine, exceptional service as had to cater for allergies etc. Thank you, you deserve 5 stars.

We recently visited this small nicely decorated restaurant and enjoyed our meal there very much. The pasta with wild boar ragu was very good , the appetizers were great, must try the seafood arancini. You pick out your own wine from the shelves with the owner who was very friendly , spoke perfect english and extremely hands on. They even called a private car for us to return to our Hotel and his other brother actually came outside to keep us company and ensure our safety which I appreciated very much!
We shall see you again my friends!

It is amazing place with excellent kitchen. So much interesting plates. Everything is preparing very fast and looks like “high level kitchen”. It’s perfect place for people who likes seafood and for vegetarians. All dishes are complicated with the real taste of Sicilian kitchen. Try “ la torta di melanzane “. This is artigianale place that you really need to come if you stay in Palermo. Thanks guys, you really have perfect kitchen.

Ate here as a couple with our 2 year old son. We both had the wild boar ragu pasta followed by pork wrapped in ham. The food was incredible! Absolutely melt in the mouth and my cow's milk allergy was suitably catered for. Our son had a home made tomato pasta which he devoured. High chairs were available and the staff took good care of us and him. Highly recommend this place.
