About Franzina Trattoria

Drawing upon the ancient tradition of family-run tavernas in Palermo, we aim to serve you no-fuss, wholesome dishes to go with a glass of wine and a chat. This is the food that we enjoy eating, the authentic taste of our homeland, Sicily.

Our menu changes daily, using the freshest picks of locally sourced produce, which our chef Pietro uses to concoct traditional dishes with a twist. Explore Sicily’s culinary tradition: discover panelle, arancine and sfincione – perfect for a quick lunch, or to take away. Or indulge yourselves with our hand-made fresh pasta, aubergine and 'poor meat' based dishes.

Our food is our passion. We’d love to share it with you.

My boyfriend and I had a great date night here! The food was so flavoursome and delicious, and there was lots of it! We particularly enjoyed the sharing plates, Pesto Pasta and Ragu Pasta. We were seated out the back of the restaurant in a sweet courtyard with fairy lights, heaters and rain cover, which was all pleasantly complemented with music. The owner and chefs were friendly and the waitress was particularly helpful giving us lots of advice. Overall very lovely place for a date, and reasonably price for the whole experience and the amount of food we got. We’ll definitely be back!

We’ve been before and loved it but this time the whole experience wasn’t as good. The starters came out pretty immediately which means they weren’t freshly prepared for us, also makes you feel very rushed. We hadn’t even enjoyed a glass of wine yet and the starters were there. The main was delicious but was overly saucy. We were in and out in an hour! Not quite the leisurely Sunday meal we had in mind. But still, the food is tasty and we very much like the local atmosphere. The menu hadn’t changed in months however & could be more seasonal/varied

All delicious - amazing. Lovely place and lovely staff, with incredible food. It tastes like wonderfully fresh and home made! Only ask would be slightly bigger portions

We had a great time. Great food, drinks and atmosphere on the heated terrace! The sfingette dessert was the best.

Delicious traditional Sicilian food and a short but well covered wine list. Pricing is great, reminds me of the little caffes in the back streets of any Italian village. Service was quite slow and not attentive which was the only thing that let it down for a 5 star review. The food however is the reason for coming here and that did not disappoint. Definitely go the shared dessert plate at then!

Second time we've visited because the pasta is so good. We sat outside, it rained and the roof leaked a little bit, it wasn't a problem at all. The manager came out fixed itnstraight away and took the first drinks off our bill which he really didn't need to do. We had doughnuts and sheep cream for pudding which was really nice. Will come here every time we are in Brixton. Really cool restaurant, 10/10. Thanks!
