    UNBELIEVABLE! What an amazing find tucked away in a quiet side street. Honestly the best food we have had - the eight course tasting menu is a “must”. Please do not leave Palermo without eating here

    We received a warm welcome by the two waitresses upon arrival. Both of them spoke English and guided us through the tasting menu. We opted for the 8-dish menu and enjoyed each and every one of them, including the amuse-bouche. All had a recognizable Sicilian flavours but were innovative and exciting in presentation. My personal highlights were the oyster with sea urchin and Spaghettone alle sarde; while my husband thought yellowfin tuna was superb. We loved the tiny capers that were used in several dishes. The restaurant has an extensive wine list featuring primarily Sicilian wines, from which we ordered a decent bottle of Etna Bianca (though on the second thought we should have chosen the wine menu that accompanies the tasting menu). All in all, we had the most enjoyable dinner that certainly came close to Michelin-starred experience. Big praise to the chef and the staff.

    Great restaurant with excellent tasting menu course of 6 or 8 with a few extra amuse bouche. We took the 6 course with wine paring but I now know we would have been better off ordering a bottle as the wine paring was not exceptional with little variety. Service was friendly and we were given enough time between each course to enjoy what we had tasted before the next excellent flavours. However even though there were just 3 tables taken we were all placed in one small area of the restaurant with very little social distancing which was a little disappointing considering the current environment. I would still highly recommend booking if you are in Palermo as the food was excellent.

    From start to finish everything was really well thought out. Waitresses were welcoming and spoke fluent English and explained well through the backgrounds and what was in the dishes. Food was just excellent and for us having already stayed a week in Palermo, the 6 course tasting menu was a special way to experience the traditional dishes in a fine dining way. One of us couldn't eat raw fish or unpasteurized milk products, but she still got to eat the same menu only with exemption that the raw components were grilled. So special thanks goes to the kitchen for taking care of that even with limitations in diet didn't mean missing on a great dining experience!

    To be honest I felt nicely spoiled there! Food was excellent, like pieces of heaven melting in my mouth. Service was very detailed and always with a smile. Deco is simple but to the point. Very exclusive restaurant. Absolutely love it

    A quiet night for them, which was a pity. The food was stunning. The service was very friendly and helpful, everything was explained, including where everything came from. The chef came out to say hello. Lovely restaurant, could not recommend highly enough.

    This was surprising and fabulous. The service was impeccable; the waitress was knowledgeable about the wine list and we were introduced to a delicious Sicilian spumante. The food was beautiful and amazing. Lots of adjectives to describe this experience, and only a 4 minute walk from where we are staying, couldn't be more perfect.

    Lovely, family run restaurant. Excellent food and a great wine list. For Christmas dinner, we enjoyed an excellent tasting menu. Outstanding fish, very good mix of fresh local food, innovative recipes and traditional approaches.

    High end food, good presentation and quality, but very small, overpriced and a limited selection of menu items. In the end, you can eat elsewhere very well for half the cost.

    A really nice restaurant, relaxed and cozy, with lovely food. We had cod and beef fillet with truffles and whisky sause. For dessert ice cream and a tiramisu-like dessert. The wine was good and we had a nice waitres. All in all this was not expensive due to the place. Recommend this place :)
