We ate here twice during our stay in Palermo. It's a little hard to find as it is on a small side street but definitely worth the effort. The food and service were both top notch. Especially enjoyed the sea bass. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at Al Fondaco del Conte. Since I'm traveling solo, I prefer to eat a little earlier--particularly on a Friday--and this was one of the few spots open at 7 pm. I was immediately ushered in by the owner of the restaurant...More
