Owner was extremely friendly and gracious, gave recommendations for places to visit. We had fresh fish appetizers, pasta, and steak entrées - everything was wonderful. Be sure to try the bread sticks - best ever! Homemade hazelnut ice cream topped off the meal.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel staff, and upon looking at this restaurant tripadvisor rank (130+ at that time), we wondered if its really worth going there. We had a time gap for lunch and decided to give Sambuca a visit. The restaurant is in the beautiful Kalsa district, right on via alloro. It is modernly designed... More

This was a delightful evening in so many ways. Alessandro at Abatellis Luxury recommended this restaurant. He promised it was very good. And so it was. We were the only couple in the restaurant. We picked a good night; it was packed the night before. Our host Vincenzo was so very kind to us! This is a family owned restaurant.... More

Our first night in Palermo. The hotel recommended the restaurant and they were right. The owners welcomed us and made great recommendations. The pastas were perfect al dente. Cacio and Pepe with lime and anchovies was amazing. The tagliatelle with porcini and speck flavorful.

A good restaurant if not a great one. Friendly staff provide a warm welcome but the decor is modern and a bit stark to give the place a the right ambience. The food, however, was excellent and whilst I simply had a steak, it was beautifully cooked and the sauce perfectly judged. Not the restaurant's fault, but a party of... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance and were very pleased with our visit. The service was fantastic, very friendly and attentive and the maitre d' patiently explained the menu to us in English. All 3 courses of food were delicious and the wine excellent. The only negative was the lack of atmosphere as the restaurant was very quiet when... More

We knew about this place from passing by through Via Alloro as the lady owner gave us her card whilst we browsed the menu for a future visit. Our return a few days later was truly worth it. Each dish we ordered was refined, looked brilliant, tasted as if there was no tomorrow. Generally, a very good menu to choose... More

Superb choice with some excellent recommendations. A lovely restaurant with the finest food. The staff were warm and welcoming and the owner could not be more engaging. The young lady who makes jewellery was lovely also.

I forward the suggestion I received from the receptionist who introduced me here: call and ask for pasta with sea urchins. Do it in the afternoon to ensure enough time for the cook to ask fishermen for the seafood. You will not regret it.
