Ferro di Cavallo

Nestled in the heart of Palermo, Trattoria Al Ferro di Cavallo is a historic gem that has been serving typical Palermo and Sicilian specialities since 1944. Within its rustic embrace, the restaurant presents classic Sicilian pasta and seafood dishes that capture the essence of the region's flavours, with the option to dine al fresco at outdoor tables.


Sicilian cuisine is rustic but exciting, thanks to the influence of the many cultural influences the island has had over the years. Eating at small neighbourhood trattorias is highly recommended, as is visiting the historical markets where the extraordinary street food tradition of Palermo can be enjoyed. From the glorious rotisserie products and Sicilian pizza to the freshest seafood specialities, Palermo won't leave any culinary desire unfulfilled.
