Restaurants and pizzerias

For dinner and only for dinner, you’ll find one of the best pizzas in the city at the “Vecchio Cortile.” This restaurant is situated in Via Veneziano, just two minutes walk from Sky Sleeping. The secret of a good Pizza is in the natural yeast in the dough and in the meticulous way that the chef chooses his ingredients. In the finely furnished dining room, you can also try other types of Sicilian cuisine and, in the summer, there’s a small courtyard for an open-air dinner. It’s closed Tuesdays and the prices are reasonable for the quality of products and service. The restaurant is run by a nice couple, friendly and meticulous, that was my first guest in 2006 during the opening of Sky Sleeping b&b, guest houses today.

If you want a more fancy menu-based and good fish, I recommend you to visit the restaurant “I Manciatari.” Although this restaurant is located a short walk from our B & B, just a 3 minute walk to reach it via Rè Frederick II. 109. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and Luigi, the owner, will settle for making you taste the specialties of Palermo based on fresh fish. The room is not very large and, therefore, you need to be sure to reserve a seat. Closed on Monday. Recommended!

Another restaurant just 10 minutes from Sky Sleeping is “Ai Cascinari”. Located in Via D’Ossuna, this restaurant is characterised by its welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere and its variety of traditional dishes from Palermo. All this for a great price and excellent service that is difficult to find elsewhere. It’s closed on Mondays and in the evenings it’s only open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

If you wish to go a bit further, try “Lo Scudiero”. This restaurant is situated in Via Turati, next to the Politeama Theatre (just 15 minutes from our guesthouse). When you arrive, you are graciously welcomed and immediately served a glass of Prosecco and gorgonzola dip. Great price and great quality, an elegant place where many of our clients go to eat. The menu has been the same for years and has proven to be excellent each time. The fish is exquisite and always fresh and, you should try the tartar fillet. The mullet and fennel pasta is also extremely tasty. Great for a work or business lunch. The prices are above average but are worth it for the service. It’s closed on Sundays.
