We visited this restaurant because of the good tripadvisor reviews. The patio was very nice and delightful! The staff did not speak English but the communication still worked fine. They brought the raw fish to our table and we picked which fish to eat. Fish taste okay, more flavour would be better. The fillet with parmesan was delicious. All the portions were served without any sidedishes, some vegetables or potatoes would be preferred. The dessert torta de orange was absolutely delicious but the chocolate cake (inside ice cream) was poor. We still recommend this restaurant as the overall experience was pleasant.

Visited this restaurant on recommendation but found the food to be only OK.

The outside eating area while looking initially nice found it very hot as the vents from the kitchen are directed there. As the space is confined there was not much air movement on a hot evening.

Good value though.

The pasta was perfectly cooked. The fillet steak was the best I'd ever had and the service was very friendly. Can't wait to return.

We came late, looking for a place to eat. We entered the restaurant and felt immediately welcomed like we came for a family visit. There was no place inside, after a quick chat between the two gentlemen we were taken to the back side into an inside garden. With a very nice atmosphere and setting. With some improvisation and looking around, we managed to order couple of dishes. The food was great, we loved it. If you are looking for real Italian food, not expensive or fancy, this is the place to go.

Although this restaurant is not located downtown, this should not be misleading. It's a restaurant where you eat well, in fact very good, at reasonable prices. This is precisely what I consider to be of higher value, not food specially made for tourists, as an indifferent meal. For 4 days we are in Catania, probably this is the best restaurant I have ever eaten !!!
