Amazing home-made Italian pasta: Ristorante All’ Olivella Wine ‘n’ Dine (10. September 2017)

The All’Olivella is ranked as one of the best restaurants in Palermo and when we got there, at first, I was thinking “what the hell” as it does not look like one of the best restaurants in Palermo. And while my sample is obviously very small, given I’ve only been there for approximately 36 hours, […]

Perfect place for breakfast in a busy street: Ruvolo Beer and Wine (10. September 2017)

Perfect place for breakfast in a busy street: Ruvolo Beer and Wine (10. September 2017)

What I love about Italy is the fact that you find a lovely café around every corner – and in Palermo there is one long street where kind of everything is going on. So upon walking by various cafés and not finding anything which fit, we finally found the Ruvolo Beer & Wine. Or to […]

Decent bar by the beach with weird rules: Nautoscopio (9. September 2017)

Decent bar by the beach with weird rules: Nautoscopio (9. September 2017)

While wandering around in Palermo, we ended up by the beach at some point and there is something like a little club right next to the sea shore where you can sit outside, in the sand, and enjoy your drink there. I went for a “mojito” (EUR 6.00) which was decent in terms of how […]

Great little place for fresh seafood: Osteria Mercede (9. September 2017)

Great little place for fresh seafood: Osteria Mercede (9. September 2017)

The Osteria Mercede is not only famous on TripAdvisor it is also very punctual (and yes, we’re talking about Italy here), opening exactly at 7pm. The place is quite small with maybe 10-15 tables and is easily booked out. When we arrived, a bunch of people were joining us queuing and only because we had […]

Nice place to be covered from the shade: Il Bar @ La Rinascente (9. September 2017)

Nice place to be covered from the shade: Il Bar @ La Rinascente (9. September 2017)

When you arrive in Palermo after the 50 years anniversary of your company the previous night in Munich, you feel like sleeping, relaxing, sitting back, and not doing anything. Well, if you are arriving in Palermo meeting your friends from kindergarten, then things usually turn out differently than you had planned – after a “Francesino […]

Outstanding dishes where you wouldn’t expect them: Restaurant Al Pont de Ferr (10. September 2016)

While I was a student in Milan some years ago, I was definitely not aware that the Navigli had fancy restaurants – well, despite the fact that it does not really look much fancy from the outside, the dishes were actually great. After having placed the order, they served a small amuse bouche as a […]

Lovely natural ice cream flavours: Gelateria Grom (10. September 2016)

We originally wanted to pay our back then favourite ice cream store, Cioccolati Italiani, a visit! However, as it was closed due to renovation (respectively “preparing itself for the future”), we ended up going to Grom. I always liked Grom but was never an explicit fan. However, I must say if you get “Caramelo al […]

Amazing coffee place – with some ice cream: Gelateria Toldo (10. September 2016)

One of the loveliest places to have a double espresso in style I have been to! While you would not necessarily expect to find a small gem when walking by as the outside of the place does not look too appealing, the inside is totally different. The Gelateria Toldo is also a small bakery which […]
