Pricey but worth it. Food was excellent and we relied on staff to choose the accompanying wine - a local Sicilian white that was prefect with our seaside mains. Staff also helped out the fussy eater in our family with no drama - always a bonus!

The concierge at our hotel was able to find us a last minute opening at Ciciulena on New Year's Eve. We arrived not knowing what to expect, but found a wonderful pre-fix 7 course meal. The service was excellent and the design of the restaurant was very elegant. All of the courses, the champagne and wine, and the dessert were... More

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!
