I only have great things to say about Agora. Such a personable waiter and the outdoor seating was great. A little bit of a walk off of Etnea, but totally worth it. I thought the combination of the Vegan plates and traditional Sicilian cuisine was fabulous. I had the best drink ever-- non alcoholic Sicilian apple juice with mint. And,... More

Good quality and fast serving. As the place was fully filled with locals, live jazz session that's good sign. Vegetarian meal was awesome, recommend to try!

We just had pizza, which was very good. The service was very good and the waiter looked after us. Speaking English helped. It is underground and a nice grotto atmosphere. Not the cheapest but the price is ok, given the location.

I spent a few days in Catania and this was by far, my favourite restaurant! Such great food and service, and the place is so charming. Don't forget to visit La Grotta, with its subterranean little river. The Pasta Alla Norma and the risotto ciuressu are splendid!

Nice restaurant with good food. A lot of local youngsters visit the place and it's quite crowded in the weekends. It's nice to visit the underground river in the cellar before dinner. A downside is that on the outside terrace, even though it's completely roofed, everybody is smoking (which seems to be normal in Italy).

We stayed next door in the hostel and had dinner here on our second night. After that experience we spent every other evenings here. This must be the coolest place in Catania. It is a hub for locals, so after a while it gets crowdy and not easy to get a table. They have a wide selection of Sicilian meals,... More

We happened upon this restaurant when we veered off the main tourist area - and we are so happy that we did. It is and indoor-outdoor down to earth place with great food and atmosphere, with great food and value for Money.
