I had a nice lunch on a Sunday, filled with Sicilian specialties such as arancini. Dessert had a multitude of options, from wonderful pastries, gelato or coffee. A great start to a week in Sicily.

First we ordered food then a waiter asked us to sit and wait for our order We ate the food ( btw pretty good ) and on the bill we saw not 2 but 2.80 euro for one portion. It turned out that if you sit down the price raises up for 0.8 euro. And nobody mentioned it when we... More

You will get addicted, and having them with an aperitif you won't need any dinner :) stuffed with pistachio, ragù or ham - just heaven on earth, that is Catania!

This place seems to be a bit of an institution and was recommended by the owner of our BnB. It was a great stop after visiting the gardens. We sat inside in the cafe area and the service was fast and pleasant. When we left we picked up some cannoli to go. It was a bit confusing, you have to... More

This place is opposite Bellini Park and is very famous the cashier was very unfriendly and the barman put my caffe cream in a shot cup for takeaway. Even though his supervisor who saw the ridiculous size told him to give us a gelato cup. At €1.50 it was ridiculous for a tablespoon of frozen coffee. The cannolo was very... More

My local hosts as well as the lady at tourist information insisted Savia had the best arancini in Catania (and to get the ragu version), so I decided to give it a try. Check store hours because it was not always open when I stopped by. Succeeded on the 2nd try. :) But the place was full so I decided... More

The cannolo was too sweet and sorry, but i don't like chocolate chips inside the filling. There was not much left of the original Ricotta flavor. Two points for the homemade shell and the pistachio dipping at the ends. This is a typical overrated touristic place.

The aracini well worth the stop. Busy so you may have to wait. Popular with the locals...always a good sign. Watching what others ordered pointed to interesting light food. Service good. When busy one can feel pressured to move on. Not by the staff just the hungry waiting patrons!

Great pasticceria with amazing cannoli (sweet ricotta filled pastry shells) and biscotti di mandorle (almond biscuits). Highly recommended and definitely one of the best cafeterias in Catania.
