Palace of the ‘Leopard’.
Palace Gangi Valguarnera

Surrounded by the walls of the ancient Palazzo Gangi, as if in an embrace, is the Osteria dei Vespri, which timidly and silently observes the passers-by between Piazza Croce dei Vespri and the historic Modern Art Gallery.


More precisely, between Palazzo Bonet, seat of the Civic Gallery of Modern Art, and Palazzo Valguarnera Ganci, the residence where Luchino Visconti filmed the grand ball sequence in “The Leopard” in 1963, the restaurant expresses a Sicilian atmosphere contaminated with more northern gastronomic ideas , revealing the origins of the Rizzo brothers.
