We tried horse meat 3 ways - meatballs/patties - grilled thin slices and the filet. All was well tastefully prepared and we all enjoyed it. Also get the black ink pasta - delicious. napkin required to avoid making your lips look like you're ready for a hard rock concert. Very crowded by locals, so come early to avoid waiting.

We had very delicious sarde beccafico and a mixed first dish of spaghetti al nero di seppia e linguine ai frutti di mare very tasteful and well prepared. We finally had very good frittelle... More

I have been coming every year. 2010 an expert foodie-friend suggested us to try this place if we wanted to taste some good, not too expensive and original local food, and so we did. I went with my brother and we really loved it. We have been guests, at least once every summer since then and they never disappointed us.... More

We decided to stay close to the hotel, right in the center of Catania. And what else to will if tasting typical Sicialian food? We had pasta al nero di seppia, involtini di pesce spada and pasta alla norma. So good, so sicilian...

Visited earlier this year in August and eat good meat so wanted to visit again. My experience is good value for money but too a rushed service. Next Time if it is busy I will search other places

Brilliant if you speak Italian, full of locals and packed most nights. Language is a barrier but the staff try their best. Food is ok

We were happy with the suggestion to have lunch here. It was filled with locals. We had to ask the server 3 times how much a liter of wine was as we didn't believe that it was only 4 euros! And boy it was great wine! We had two first courses - a penne with red sauce and roasted eggplant... More
