Stopped here and sat outside at lunch time, Had a nice vegetarian lasagne and a lasagne al forno. Both were good and tasty. A good place to sit and watch the world go by. Good service. Had a decent canoli for desert.

Very nicely decorated place is Sicilian traditional style, with very friendly English speaking staff and a great selection of pizzas. The other courses seemed a bit pricey, but the pizza was good and at a reasonable price.

Brightly-lit establishment on the main road through Palermo. A lot of the food is expensive, but the pizzas come somewhere between 6€-10€. Beers are another couple of euros on top. Decent sized TV was good for watching the World Cup.

Enjoyed sitting here so much watching the world with our Aperols, stuffing ourselves with free olives and nuts, that we went on consecutive nights.
