    This restaurant was a real 'back street' find. Lovely food with some brilliant mixtures of flavours. I had the beef fillet with cacio cheese which was sublime. All in all it's a lovely restaurant with great food, good service and a good atmosphere.

    Searched on TripAdvisor for a restaurant near us and found this gem. Service was friendly and efficient. The complimentary cocktail on arrival was a nice touch. We were 7 friends away for a weekend and we all enjoyed the delicious food. Not easy to please 7 different tastes! A particular mention for the carpaccio of sea bass. Divine! Those who chose steaks said they were the best they’d ever tasted - succulent and melt in the mouth. If you’re in Palermo go and see for yourself!

    Found unexpected small fish bones in a risotto dish described as with red mullets and fried leeks. Didn’t expect it; didn’t like it especially since got stuck in teeth. Worrisome. Risotto tasted more like bland jambalaya than risotto. Other pasta dish we had was edible.

    Very welcoming restaurant. Greeted with complimentary drink and rolls. Limited menu but excellent quality and well prepared. Small restaurant surrounded by bushes for privacy from busy square.

    We had a wonderful evening at Ferro. It started with a complimentary Aperitif (a tasty Spritz) and got better and better from there on. The service was quick, warm and friendly. The food was simply delicious. We chose the Branzino Carpaccio and a salad as starters and the Risotto and Beef Filet as the main courses and were simply delighted by the amazing cooking. To finish it off we had an amazing hot chocolate cake and some delicious sorbet. For such an amazing evening, the prices were very reasonable even with a bottle of wine. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! If we are back in Palermo, this is where we will go to eat.

    A very good restaurant with fantastic food. It is a family run business with not many tables so booking is essential. It hasn't got a big menu which is what we like, quality over quantity. Everything we ordered are fantastic. Highly recommended!

    The people at Ferro are lively and the service is wonderful. We unfortunately found the food lacking. My husband’s spaghetti was bland and my fish average. The spaghetti squash and salad were good.

    Our antipasti dishes were both good (not outstanding) seafood soup was loaded with calamari (huge chewy chunks) and few mussels (perfectly prepared) in a very thick pomodoro “sauce”; rocket salad w/ celery root was refreshingly simple. Spaghetti w/ bottarga, zucchini and pine nuts lacked flavor & the pasta was disappointingly over cooked (definitely NOT al dente);; risotto w/ red mullet lacked flavor (huge pile of overcook rice piled on a plate). Branzino entree was cooked perfectly but too salty (cooked encroute); salmon fillet over favs & overcooked peas was best dish overall.
