    I dare say that the experience we had was unfortunate and exceptional but it wasn't good. The waiter, pleasant enough, didn't understand the English menu that he gave us. I ordered the creamed cod and showed him what I wanted. Instead of clarifying it with me he scuttled off into the kitchen and then said he knew what I meant. The first coutrse was tasty and plentiful, however what I got was not cod but mackerel, which I loathe. They didn't check with us so we had to point out that this was not what we'd ordered. I tried the mackerel and could not eat it and the chips served with both our mains wer not cooked. Not until I complained at the end was I offered a replacement dish, which I did not want anymore. I also had to argue to get the unordered dish taken off the bill. I hope this was a one off but it wasn't good. Lesson - if you go use the Italian menu!

    Our first night in Palermo and we couldn't of picked a better restaurant. It looked kind of different than what I expected because it was so small, BUT the food was amazing and the service was great. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to everyone.

    Our party of 6 loved this restaurant. It doesn't look like much from the outside and was difficult to identify from the street. However, it is cozy and quite nice on the inside. The staff was very attentive. The food was great, especially the fresh pasta dishes and the desserts. The wine list is limited, but the local wines that are served are inexpensive, yet good. The portions are large enough for two to easily share. Overall, we can highly recommend it!

    Amazing restaurant in Palermo and surprisingly empty for its food and value. The pasta is to die for and we haven't eaten anywhere else after eating there.

    OK, we stayed in Palermo only for two days and wanted to have something special. Since this place had a high score and many good reviews on tripadvisor, we expected it to be the one. The reality was it was a kind of inexpensive "cafe" style place for cheap meal seekers. I realized on google also sometimes, people tend to rate high when the place is inexpensive but this does not really represent the quality of food. 10 EUR just for one pasta is normal and not extremely cheap either. We were disappointed already as we walked in but since we reserved a table, we decided to have just some quick bites. We ordered two kinds of pasta, which were their recommendations. One with mussels was not really hot, the other with swordfish was ok and tasted better than the mussels but still there was nothing very special neither was the food of high quality. OK, 20% off was appealing but when we have few chances to dine in Palermo, we should have rather booked some other proper place. Wine and staff were ok to be fair

    A gem. Very small local restaurant with excellent reviews that are well deserved. The staff are welcoming and very pleasant. The food is very good, the bruschetta was fresh and flavourful and the two pasta dishes we tried were hearty servings of delicious typically Sicilian food.

    From the picture I was expecting a fast food feeling inside,but the music was very nice and the food fantastic. I am glad that I choose this place for the birthday lunch for my husband. The portions are large. We've had Sicilian appetizer that was good for 2. For second we've ordered fresh tortelini with bacon, cream, mushrooms and the Asian pasta. Booth of them were very good. For all these and 2 glasses of wine and water, we've paid 33 Euros with the 20% Fork discount. We will go again!
