Palermo is not just street food: there are many other delicacies, sweet and savory, to try. To find out the best addresses in the Sicilian city we got help from the concierges of our hotels in Palermo to whom we asked for three of their favorite places.
Francesco from Palazzo Brunaccini
Here are his top three: Dal Maestro del Brodo, the Arcimboldo restaurant and pizzeria in the tennis club Palermo 2, “especially for pizza,” and Trattoria Da Mafone, in the historic centre of the city. The common thread in the three restaurants is excellent raw ingredients.
In the first address, the kitchen is the market, and it could not be otherwise given that the Vucciria is a few steps away. The house speciality is boiled-beef with its broth, but the fish counter at the entrance clarifies it does not disappoint you. Should you wish for seafood, you can enjoy one of the best fish in the area: “Do not miss their Bucatini with Sardines alla Palermitana. Still on the subject of first courses, try Da Mafone pasta with aubergines, fresh mint, tomato and swordfish ”.
