We were in Catania for a couple of days at the end of our holiday. The hotel where we stayed recommended this place and we were not disappointed. We were given the option of dining inside or outside. We opted for alfresco and it only added to the Sicilian charm... especially when you look up to the windows and find... More

A very tipical Italian restaurant. The food was wonderful lots of choices, ambiance was very warm and welcoming. The owner and staff very attentive, supplied a birthday cake and sang to me for my birthday. Recommend booking ahead as it is very popular.

Warm and intimate setting, run by "older" guys who know how to set a comfortable pace for a meal. Our waiter made useful suggestions and gladly explained the dishes.

The wine selection and prices were good and the chef was nice enough to allow us to order a carprese salad off menu. Unfortunately our mains were some of the worst we have eaten in our 10day sicily trip. Thankfully we have been... More

Great pasta, not so great fish, although maybe my choice was bad, because other fish meals look much better.

In the city for the evening. Had a few beers after we did the tourist bit and then hit trip advisor for suggested evening meal destinations. This is slightly off the main beaten track. It was mainly inhabited by locals. 5 of us had a mix of pasta, steak and fish of the day. Very good and recommended.
