I recommend having a plan B when you go there. I arrived one hour prior to closure and there were plenty of seats available including the terrace. Nevertheless I was told that I won't get served. And it certainly was not my outfit, which was...More

What a great find this is, tucked away in a quiet alleyway. Lovely jazz theme, very gay friendly and excellent food. They even gave me a free appetizer and a glass of bubbles to go with it. Fine place to wrap up an excellent trip....More

When you work hard to overcome the harsh Sicilian charm and get a first smile from your waitress ... you are good. Food was very good and tasty. Especially the fish dishes. Nice wine as well. Good place for Palermo.

We were a little disappointed by the food. Ceviche boring with bitter unripe avocado. Pork dry and overcooked. Side dishes uninspired. Maybe the chef had not his best day. Service and ambience was very nice.
