We stopped here as part of our Etna experience. The food was good. I had said previously that I really don't like mushrooms so I was given a special pasta dish with no mushrooms in it. Thank you.

After a long day on Mt Etna, our guide brought us to this hotel to have a late lunch. To be fair, we were delayed on Etna and therefore arrived at 15:00 to find the owner having a nap with his son.

I ate here about a dozen times at the insistence of an acquaintance who frankly is more interested in the quantity than the quality of food. After the last meal had there I absolutely will never return! Antipastos are often... More

We had lunch in the garden of the restaurant during a guided tour a nd we really enjoyed it. The location is relaxing and the food is simple but very good. The staff is kind.
