I'll be off to Palermo in Sicily next month. I can't find any information of vegetarian restaurants. Does anyone know?

This is a vegan centre / resort in Sicily with a lot more going on - http://bali3000.com/crystalsound/response.html

In the village called Balestrate, there's a casual restaurant "Piccola Palermo". It's not a vegetarian place but they serve several vegetarian dishes and they were very good. We paid less than 12 euros for 3 plates and drink.

Here is the BBC in 2000 quoting Cardinal Giacomo Biffi the ex-Archbishop of Bologna (a place infamous for it's pig abuse).
"Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, 71, said that the modern Antichrist, identified in the Book of Revelation as a seven-headed beast, was most likely now disguised as a philanthropist supporting creeds like vegetarianism, animal rights or pacifism, or advocating dialogue with Orthodox or Anglican believers.
But his true aim was to undermine the Catholic church, the Cardinal argued."

Rosticceria "La Piccola Palermo", Via Paolino Gesugrande 22, Balestrate Village - Tel 0918787271.
A "rosticceria" is the Italian equivalent of fast food, not US style burgers etc. , but "real" food. Only visit though if you trust your grasp of the Italian language!
