We are of Sicilian (Ragusa) ancestry and ate here tonight looking for some authentic Sicilian food. It has been surprisingly hard to find but at this restaurant some of the food was exactly as my Nonna cooked it as a kid. The anti-pasta plate was brilliant, as was the seafood, pork sausages and other meats. The atmosphere was perfect outside (very funky) and service excellent. We will be back when visiting Catania again. It was a Saturday night and we got a table straight away (about 7.30) but I noticed that not long after a small line developed.

Went on the basis of good reviews. Food wasnt that bad, but nothing special, bog standard, but the prices reasonable. Swordfish "steak" was as thin as medium sliced bread overcooked and dry.
I got the impression that the tourists were put in one part of the place and the locals in another.
Wouldnt go again.

Spent our last night in Catania in this lovely restaurant. It is situated in a side street so look for directions. It was very close to our hotel. Nice atmosphere, good food and wine. Value for money. Helpful staff.
