We came late for dinner, the tables on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant were almost occupied, but a young and friendly waitress found us a place to sit. We ordered two different dishes from an interesting menu with many local and international suggestions...More

Very pleasant outside eating area. Had the best veal steak ever, with grilled vegetables. Waiter's wine recommendations were perfect - for me! Avoid sitting by the speakers.

We went for dinner in a group tour, but the food quality is surprisingly good, has an alfresco portion which was breezy in the summer heat. Recommended.

Given the good previous reviews, this was a disappointing experience. An order for 2 drinks took 15 minutes before they arrived, the food took far longer than it should have done, the bill (and then a waiter with the card machine) took an age to...More

The Tale enjoys an excellent location in the center of Catania, close to the central train station. Martyrs' Square is the crossroads for major urban and suburban roads. Ample parking (including buses) surrounding the palace Ferrarotto (Great monument of Liberty Catania nineteenth century), which insists on building the restaurant. Only genuine food meat fish and pizza.
