Founded in 1951, this is one of Old Palermo's most esteemed seafood eateries. Locals come at midday to feast on the freshest of fish. You can begin with a memorable buffet featuring baby octopus, raw neonata (tiny fish resembling sardines but with a milder flavor), and chickpea fritters. Next tuck into spaghetti with sea urchin or casarecce (partially rolled pasta) with swordfish and mint; then finish with glorious fresh fish or shellfish, roasted or grilled.
Depending on what you select, the bill can creep up on you, but it's worth every cent.
