    Excelente service, very interesting Menu, but some cooking techniques need improvement. The octopus in the starter was hard to chew, my ‘rolled’ fish was over cooked and dry.

    Service for 5. Starter of platter is good. Ordered two pasta, very salty. Probably the saltest food I ever had. Not sure what others' thought...

    Very friendly, nice outdoor setting in small piazza. The antipasto platter was delicious. The bruschetta with tuna bottarga as well. The Spigola involtini was ok, lacking in flavor. But the Millefoglie was supremely delicious , light and fruity. Owner was delightful, Overall a nice experience !

    What a gem of a restaurant in the middle of so many dining options. The hostess (chef’s wife) was very welcoming and accommodating as she offered a wine not yet listed on the menu once she understood our preference. Each item we ordered was prepared and presented perfectly. It was a perfect evening for dining al fresco. Grazie for a special memory!!

    It is a lovely family-run restaurant with a warm atmosphere and the best mille-feuille you'll ever try. We had dinner there twice. Do try Donna Eleonora antipasti: a selection of 5 different starters. Pasta and fish in this place are also good. Can't recommend the steak though, to our taste it was dry and boring

    We were given a warm welcome and the menu was explained to us very well. They will happily spend time helping you to make your selections from their menu. The food was excellent. The restaurant is positioned in a Piazza slightly apart from others which gives it a quieter feel but still with a bit of buzz around. If we had been staying longer in Palermo we would definitely have eaten there again.

    The waitress was good, but the rest of people at service where in such hurry, that they even be a little rude. At 8:30 not beer at all, and no way to get it.

    Our waiter was extremely well informed regarding the origin and preparation of the food and the wine. The four of us asked for a single large plate of starters to share. What we actually got was about 8 plates - arriving in succession, each with four delicious items. It was way more than what we really wanted but it was worth it because of the excellence and variety of the food. We then took a nice long break before ordering the main course.

    We liked the joyful staff, who created a relaxed and enjoyable experience. The very talented and friendly chef came out to check on our reactions to his amazing cuisine. We were one of two American couples, there were two Italian couples and a French party of 8. It was a nice mix of people all who seemed to enjoy their meals.

    Arrived on time for our reservation and were greeted politely and seated. After looking at the menu the waiter explained the specials that evening but not the prices. When later asked, he had to ask another person. We both ordered the specials. Plating/presentation and taste were average. Overall, it was good/average.

About the restaurant

Io, Chiara, ed il mio compagno, Alessandro Galli, lo chef del locale, dopo un paio di anni di distanza (lui a Bologna io a Palermo) ci siamo inventati un sogno per vivere e condividere la nostra vita, anche lavorativa insieme. Di lì ad un pò di mesi dopo il nostro progetto/sogno si è concretizzato ed è il Donna Eleonora.

Vi chiederete da dove arriva l'idea del nome Donna Eleonora, beh Eleonora era la mamma del mio compagno, lo chef Alessandro; lei sin da quando Alessandro era piccolo, gli ha trasmesso l'amore per la cucina. Purtroppo lei è prematuramente scomparsa e allora insieme abbiamo deciso di dedicare alla sua memoria il nostro progetto e lo abbiamo, perciò, chiamato il ristorante Donna Eleonora, augurandoci che potesse essere anche di buon auspicio.

Il nostro ristorante è una piccola realtà che può accogliere una cinquantina di clienti, magari qualcuno in più, all'interno del locale, mentre fuori abbiamo un delizioso baglietto che in primavera ed estate può accogliere 24 persone. Lo stile è semplice, ci dicono, caldo ed accogliente.

Il nostro tipo di cucina è prevalentemente del territorio e di pesce anche se proponiamo anche piatti di carne, come omaggio all'esperienza lavorativa più che decennale di Alessandro a Bologna, abbiamo inserito dei piatti della cucina tipica emiliana.

In più, quando abbiamo qualche occasione particolare, un battesimo piuttosto che una laurea od un compleanno, io personalmente mi curo di addobbare in maniera carina, particolare ed a tema il locale.
