The meals we chose were delicious, generous servings rather too much for our appetites. The wait staff were very attentive even though they were extremely busy that night with a few large parties. The garden setting was beautiful.

A really great seafood restaurant perfect for a special occasion. My group and I ate from a set menu as we were a big party. The mixed fish starter was sizeable and super fresh and a highlight. A big portion delicately presented and super delicious. The pasta main was also very good but a bit on the small size. However if you are not a seafood fan then best go else where as the vegetarian option was little more than well presented cous cous. Waiting on staff a little business-like and no interaction which let the restaurant down a little. However, the food was so good that I'll definitely be returning visits to Catania.

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.
