This restaurant was one of the best we have eaten in. I strongly recommend it. The price is also quite good. The ambiance is terrific. You have to look carefully to find it, as it is set back slightly. Our hotel, the NH centro recommended it, and I'm glad they did. We went back at least 3 times.

This is a 15 minute walk from the main centre of Catania and easy enough to find using the local tourist maps. We wanted to move away from the restaurants in the main area and see what further a field had to offer. The setting as already stated by many of the reviewers is beautiful. We checked what Il pozzo translated to and it was 'The Well' this was outside in the lovely terrace area. The menu was vast and thankfully translated into English. We shared a main course to start our meal 'calamari'. This was cooked well. It came with brucetta, basically olive oil covered toasted bread. It didn't compliment the food and was slightly burnt.
For our main meal we both had seafood Risotto. The presentation was Excellent as were the flavours and quality of the seafood. Having tried many Risottos this was note worthy and full of seafood and cooked to perfection. The staff were attentive and efficient. We may return before the end of our 10 day break as so far it had all the right qualities for a romantic setting and we will be celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary.

My boyfriend and I went here on the recommendation of our B&B. We were blown away! The layout is lovely and it felt like somewhere special as the waiters all wear suits. There was a real range on the menu from €8 pizza to €100 lobster but regardless of your order (we were the former!) there is fantastic service but no more cover charge than anywhere else. The waiters were very attentive and this felt like a real treat. Last but definitely not least the pizzas were the best we'd had in our week trip to Sicily and very decent wine too. This is a must-visit :)

One of the best dinners we had in Sicily. We visited after we read the amazing reviews here and we highly recommend a visit. We ordered the tagliata to share between two for a reasonable price. The meat was delicious and the dessert was mouthwatering. Very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant is very modern and a nice terrace.
