Went here for dinner one evening. It is a little off the beaten track but worth looking for. The starters, mains and wine were all very tasty. The waiter serving us was terrific and the bill was vey reasonable for the standard of food. I would recommend trying this restaurant.

Having a few days in Catania happily wandering and enjoying the city we thought this looked like a good place for lunch with a fixed price menu of 25 euros/person. Such a good decision! It's a beautiful restaurant, and no economies are made for lunch time with beautiful table linen and napkins. I do appreciate that, it just lifts the... More

We have just had the most wonderful dinner at this restaurant. It was recommended as a good, non-touristy fish restaurant. Tucked away in a side street a few minutes walk from the elephant fountain. Very, very good food, with a complimentary plate of amuse bouche. The special mixed starter (no. 1) is fantastic - eight different dishes, all delicious. We... More

The staff was not friendly at all and very rude. The food was of a very bad quality and cold. Really not worth a visit. We really wasted our money there. Bad food for a high price!

On our first night in Catania, we were all set to order from the English version of the menu: a bottle of wine, antipasti, a primi, and a secondi. Through limited English/Italian communication, we surmised that he had our best interest in mind, and offered us one antipasto to share (multiple dishes of wonderful local items), and a generous primi....

Stumbled upon this place by chance as it was next to our hotel. Naturally I expected it may be a tourist trap, but I was gladly mistaken. The lovely older gentleman waiter greeted us kindly. Upon reviewing the Italian and English version of the menu he asked us if instead we would prefer him to choose some dishes for us.... More

I had lunch here and was delighted with the whole experience. Not a tourist spot and lovely conversation with the waiter who had been in the restaurant business for 50 years! No rush to get you to leave the table, excellent value. Fresh fish and Silcilian hospitality
