We ate at this restaurant on 2 evenings on the recommendation of our B&B landlord nearby. The 2 proprietors were lovely. We got a nice greeting both evenings.

Every time i visit Catania i spend at least one night in this restaurant. The fish appetizer and fish main course are excellent. This combined with the house wine according the owner fom the Marsala region is a joy for your taste. For sure I will come back!
