Unmissable in Palermo - Edit

We ate there twice in four days, and we couldn't do the third time because they close on Monday. The food was good and healthy and the staff was so friendly. The menu changes every day, they offer vegan and vegetarian options and the prices are very good. It was a great discover, I just can recommend you it If you are in Palermo.

Disappointing - Edit

The food is way too simple and quite blank. We shared an antipasti plate as a starter but it was just store bought food : dried tomatoes, olives and vegan salami
Then I had fried rice and vegetables. It was good but nothing fancy about it. The true disapointment was my boyfriend's vegan burger : just a burger and fries, no bread, no dressing ...
It is always great to find a vegan place when you travel but honestly I prefered to eat caponata and panelle in a traditional trattoria during my stay in Palermo

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Not very tasty

Delicious! - Edit

This was such a great surprise in Palermo! I well needed reprieve! Her menu is fantastic and very different with vEgan options. It has a small outside area where I enjoyed a black rice dish. Lots of juice options and vegan gelato! Even if your are not a veggie the food will be appreciated!

Pros: Menu, Owner, Outside dining

Food was delicious. menu was only in Italian, but staff spoke English.
we had two dishes. the vegan burger for 10 € was a bit small, but the saitan for 13 was good and the portion was large enough :)

vegan options - Edit

The staff spoke English and explained to me what was on the menu and what was vegan, about half the menu was vegan, food was ok! vegan gelato was nice. The restaurant has lots of seating inside and out. For dinner, gelato and drink came to 20 euros for one person.

Nice little veggie place - Edit

Handy little veggie place tucked away behind the big fascist era post office on Via Roma. Has a small menu with a couple of vegan options or they can make other items vegan too. Lunch is self service (order at the kitchen and pay at bar) and about 4-5 euros for a main course and dinner is table service and a bit more expensive 8-9 e for a main. Staff are friendly, don't speak huge amounts of English - the chef seems to though. Food is fairly simple pastas, risottos etc but their home made bread is nice and they have vegan cake too.

Pros: Vegan food , Nice quiet location , Friendly staff

Simple and healthy organic food - Edit

We ate at Freschette several time during our stay in Palermo last December. The restaurant is very small (can sit around 25) and unpretentious, but still has a nice modern/indie decor. The place is frequented by locals and the staff doesn't speak English very well. In fact, the staff and the other customers even seemed surprised to see tourists in the establishment. Nonetheless, everyone was nice and we were able to convey that we were vegans. They told us what the vegans options were and offered to adapt their recipes for us if we wanted to try some of the non-vegan options on the menu, which I think changes weekly. The chef was very nice and seemed genuinely happy to serve vegan customers.

The food itself was good, simple, healthy and inexpensive. A meal with a fresh juice was about 10 euros, which is really a bargain for a restaurant in Palermo. Don't expect anything fancy or exceptional, but if you're homesick and craving for a simple healthy and comforting meal, Freschette is the right place to go.
