Cuisine from our past

WHO WE ARE

Our cuisine is inspired by our homes. To eat well you need the best ingredients, which is why we are dedicated to constantly retrieve products all around Sicily that meet very specific criteria: we select small companies that follow the principles of organic and biodynamic production, who put excellence in quality above easier earning; respect and care for livestock. Our selection of ingredients is exclusively sourced in Sicily, with the exception of a few strongholds of Italian cooking, such as Parmigiano Reggiano.

Home-feeling

OUR INGREDIENTS

All of our ingredients come from entirely organic, free trade supply chains, sourced almost exclusively in Sicily. These are a few of our suppliers.

Free-range eggs

Giovanni Lo Faso, Marineo

Organic fruit and vegetables

Ecofruit, Bagheria e Spaccio Bio, Palermo.

Organic meats, grass-fed beef

Giaconia, Petralia Soprana

Traditional cheeses

Caseificio Cucchiara, Salemi

Artisanal pasta

Feudo Masinazzu, Valledolmo

Two extra-virgin olive oil varieties

NaturalmenteBio e  CelAuro

We decided to have two different kinds of extra virgin olive oil available, in both cases made out of 100% Sicilian olives. NaturalmenteBio is a company located on the Nebrodi mountains, that defines in their Amarus oil its primary vocation; it's an excellent organic extravirgin, made with olives of the Santagatese variety. Sanfilippo, based in the small town of Trabia, utilizes Calamignara olives, one of the finest Sicilian cultivars, that from hundreds of years provides an irresistible, characteristic olive oil.

Sicilian wines and beers

Nino Gandolfo

Salemi (TP)

Gorghi Tondi

Mazara del Vallo (TP)

COS

Vittoria (RG)

Feudo Montoni

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

TripAdvisor
  • review rating 5  Hard to get any better service. The food is just amazing. The meny is simple and is changing depending on whats available. But the important thing is that they make the food from scratch and they make it with a lot of love and you can see and taste the high quality behind it. While in the restaurant you should enjoy the beautiful architecture and just enjoy your experience. This is the best place in Palermo

  • review rating 5  Dopo tanti anni finalmente a Palermo un posto aperto da persone per bene, in una location meravigliosa in cui tutto è curato nel minimo dettaglio, personale attento ed educatissimo. La cucina poi ... tutto di stagione, menù sempre vario, piatti non troppo elaborati ma perfetti. I dolci tutti strepitosi!!! Eccellente rapporto qualità prezzo. È sempre un piacevole sorpresa tornare!

  • review rating 5  Scrivo la recensione in ritardisssssimo e mi scuso. Sono stata con amici al Quattro Mani un paio di giorni prima di ferragosto. Bel locale, spazi ampi, che permettono di non avere il tavolo vicino con il fiato sul collo. I ragazzi sono gentili, simpatici e offrono un menu a km zero. Cucina siciliana rivisitata, con materie prime locali, quindi il menu varia a seconda della disponibilità delle stesse. E' tutto bio, ma non biofricchettone, si vede che ci sono passione, cura del dettaglio e attenzione all'ambiente. Allora, gliela vogliamo dare una mano a questi ragazzi bravissimi e superecologici????? Forza! 🙂

  • review rating 5  Se dovessi usare una sola parola per definire la cucina e l'ambiente del Quattro Mani, userei il termine "freschezza". Freschezza straordinaria delle materie prime, freschezza nella loro lavorazione - insalate le più originali, alici in tempura, caponata, vongole, ciliegie, granite, dolci, primi, pesce ancora vivo, birre biologiche e artigianali... - tradizionale ma sapientissima, freschezza e gran cordialità del personale, freschezza (nella tradizione di famiglia) negli arredi, nella filosofia, nella bellissima e ricca sala... Freschezza anche nel conto, fin troppo contenuto, dopo tutto. Un giudizio, dunque, incondizionatamente positivo. Andate, amici, mi ringrazierete!

  • review rating 5  Siamo stati benissimo da Quattro Mani, proprio come a pranzo a casa di amici. Ci siamo intrattenuti a lungo con Lucio che ci ha raccontato un sacco di cose su come è nato il ristorante, i parenti, gli amici... Ci piace il loro impegno per rendere l'isola un posto non solo più accogliente, un posto migliore! Andateci assolutamente PS: non lasciatevi intimorire dalla location meravigliosa, i prezzi sono ragionevolissimi!!!!
