Highly recommended, excellent fresh fish, pasta with fish ragù and delicious hand made "cassatelle al forno" for desert. Great selection of wines and if you eat outside you have a breathtaking view of the Cathedral!

My favorite part of the meal was the swordfish, but everything I ate was delicious. It seems like it's a family run restaurant, which I like very much. The food was fantastic (pasta with clams, pasta with sea urchin, stuffed calamari, and the swordfish), the...More

Well, the best grilled octopus I have ever tasted anyway. The flavours of the sea melting in your mouth with crispy little suckers. Heaven. My partners stuffed squid was also subtle and delicious. This is a super friendly family restaurant cooking traditional food to a...More

We went as a group of ten and the service was prompt and friendly. The food was a good entrée into what Palermo cuisine offers. Nothing that could be described as amazing but plenty of it and fresh. The wine list is good, great prices...More

In a bit more of a run down area of town, this place offers simple but very descent local food. The stuffed squid is excellent and so is the pasta vongole. Wines are local and very reasonably priced. Recommended!

We had a dinner there as the place was recommended to us by a local person. But the food was very average, served very quickly which means it had beef ready before we came. Plus the bill higher 10 euro than the prices in menu......More

The place is tucked away in the vicinity of Cappo market and very close to Palermo Cathedral. The staff is always ready to welcome you with typical Italian hospitality. There are two sitting areas, indoors and outdoors. The indoors have comfy chairs and elegantly set...More

I feel like I completely remember the credit card stickers on the door, but I can't say with certainty because we paid with cash. Sorry

Sergio and Angela Spano run the restaurant since 2004. Both come from families of restaurateurs who have passed on their passion and love for the traditional cuisine of Palermo, the same passion that today move in their work, seeking the scents and flavors of the past and selecting all the raw materials with care. Caponata, Sardinian warbler, daisies ca n'ciova, squid ink pasta with sea urchins, fresh fish of the Mediterranean, they explode like a vortex of fragrances giving you a blast from the past.
