This is a typical trattoria where the husband cooks and the wife waits on the tables. Food is tasty and VERY reasonably priced. Located in the center of Catania just one block off Via Etnae.

It was quite difficult finding an authentic (non touristy) restaurant in Catania and then I stumbled upon La Pigna Verde. The food was really delicious, service attentive and just like sitting in somebody's front room! Excellent local house wine and all great value for money.

We ate at La Pigna Verde Trattoria several times while in Catania. The owners were always attentive and the service was excellent. The food was authentic Sicilian food prepared as if you were in their home. We had a variety of delicous dishes.

Small restaurant run by a very friendly family. Good food and nice authentic sicilian atmosphere. One of the best food we tried in Sicily.

Unlike the vast majority of restaurants in the centre of Catania, Trattoria La Pigna Verde seems to be a locals restaurant, but which receives tourists with a lot of kindness and friendship and with the best of Sicilian traditional dishes. Sometimes are prepared foods that are not on the menu ... just for connoisseurs ;)

Very good atmosphere, friendly staff and of course one of the best traditional food in Catania. If you want to taste a good Sicilian seafood on a reasonable price, don't miss this location.

The postive side of this trattoria is the place itself and the way you can see the husband cooking through a small opening leading to the kitchen. Friendly service from the wife, a very homely atmosphere overall. The food was fine but nothing special. Relatively cheap for the area.
