Really one of the best retaurant catania with good price and value .관광객들이 들끓는 산만한 식당이 아니라 현지인들의 맛집인지 차분하고 품격있는 분위기여서 일단 높은점수. 입구에 놓여있는 해산물 진열장이 오늘의 신선도를 알려주는듯. 주문한 seafood antipasto는 신선도가 최고였고 참치와 새우는 특히 본연의 맛을 제대로 느낄수있는 메뉴. 생앤쵸비와...More

Although they offer an English menu and a fixed price lunch, this place is full of locals, not tourists. Lovely place and excellent food.

Having a few days in Catania happily wandering and enjoying the city we thought this looked like a good place for lunch with a fixed price menu of 25 euros/person. Such a good decision! It's a beautiful restaurant, and no economies are made for lunch...More

We have just had the most wonderful dinner at this restaurant. It was recommended as a good, non-touristy fish restaurant. Tucked away in a side street a few minutes walk from the elephant fountain. Very, very good food, with a complimentary plate of amuse bouche....More

The staff was not friendly at all and very rude. The food was of a very bad quality and cold. Really not worth a visit. We really wasted our money there. Bad food for a high price!
