The entrees were amazing! Delicious ricotta, scamorza and caponata (made with honey not sugar) just dig in it. Michele and Jolanda are very nice, friendly, helpful. It was a pleasant break after some km under the sun.

One of the best restaurants we've been to in Palermo! It's a family owned business where they take pride in the food they cook and serve. The food was absolutely delicious, as was their family wine. The service was just as great. Michael and his...More
