We enjoyed a lovely meal. The service and food was excellent. We were looked after so well by Manuela, who took great care to explain the menu and provided us with tip top service. We enjoyed some great meals during our stay in Catania but this place was the best. Not cheap but we thought it was good value, given... More

The restaurant is very nice and quiet. The service is excellent and the food is great (maybe a bit salty). Local wine is good too. Not very high priced. Very good value overall.

Both the food and service were impeccable. The entire staff was helpful, made it a great night. They allowed my daughter's well behaved dog to stay with us outside. Not too high priced, and well worth every euro.

We went here on a Saturday night but as we had already had a big and late lunch we weren't that hungry and only had one course, unfortunately... It tasted wonderful and I would have loved to have a 4 or 5 course meal here. Also price wise that would have been a better deal. The restaurant is on a... More

It's very difficult to find a place that's not a tourist trap especially in city centres. If you're willing to let go , you can experience a unique gastronomical journey but a word of advice - just ask them to recommend what the locals would eat Enjoy!

A very welcome change from the standard pizza/pasta fare available in abundance Being slightly off centre it is quieter and calmer where you can enjoy an interesting European/Sicilian menus of well cooked food. The wine list is huge and therefore accommodates most tastes. Marco and Elizabeth give impeccable service which is both correct and friendly.
