First of all, the food was brilliant! However, the food waiting times are really long. The views are great too. However, I do not think these are good excuses to justify the lack of quality in service. I went to this restaurant last night with my partner, we were first welcomed by a staff member in the lobby that seemed... More

As we were staying at the hotel we ate here twice. Great views across the rooftops and as far away as Mount Etna. The food was good and service attentive.

We greatly enjoyed our lunch in the rooftop terrace. The views of Mount Etna are spectacular and can be enjoyed inside the glassed room or outside. The service from our host, Carlo, was professional and attentive, and the food was excellent - great use of local products and wines.

Very good food, excellent wine list, friendly and attentive staff and views across the rooftops to Mount Etna. Not cheap but why would it be? Highly recommended.

We came here twice during our trip, drawn in by the beautiful view of Etna at sunset that you get from the terrace. The drinks here are decent, and reasonably priced given the location. Bear in mind that you are paying a premium for the view. That said, it's still around €8 for a negroni, so not too shabby and... More

Glad that we decided to have dinner here based on the UNA hotel recommendation. The restaurant has a great space and design. The food was delicious as each dish was seasoned and prepared well. We had Nero pasta and grilled salted fish. The service was friendly and courteous. One recommendation is it would be nice if the floor lights at... More

We were here on Christmas Eve, had booked table online but restaurant was full. They were very very courteous & accommodated a table for us. Quite expensive but quality of food was very very good, but too small portions. It was a windy & cold weather outside, so we could barely see Mt.Etnea. But a good restaurant to dine once... More
