We had a great stay at Pippinitto. Cesare was a friendly and helpful host. Our room was large and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with hams, cheeses and superb marmalade. The lemon trees were a delightful background to sitting on the hammocks. It makes a great base for visiting Mount Etna.

"La casa di Pippinitto" is one of the best B&B around Mt. Etna and surely the one I know with more “personality”. It is a peaceful old farmhouse tastefully restored surrounded by nine hectares of lush citrus groves, many other kind of fruit trees, lots of flowers and a vegetable garden with delicious organic products available for guests. it is...

We stayed at La Casa di Pippinetto for five days in September and rated it our top experience during our recent visit us to Southern Italy. As everyone else has said, Cesare is a warm and welcoming host, and the accommodation is extremely comfortable for the modest price charged. You have to look very carefully to see the care with...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Casa di Pippinitto, especially all the little touches that elevate this B&B to something special. As noted in other reviews, Cesare is friendly, welcoming, and helpful -- truly a warm host. We arrived stressed and hungry after a travel day fraught with difficulties and he arranged to have pizza and calzones delivered for... More

It was the 4th time we were in Santa Venerina in La Casa di Pippinitto with the terrific Cesare as host. And again we had a great time. Although Cesare is working around the clock amidst the citrus trees, the olives or the wallnut trees, he is doing everything that is in his power to make you feel at home.... More

The rooms, the bathrooms, breakfast and the entire feeling of being welcome and being 'serviced'. The wine is in the fridge next to the water and beers in the shared living room for all to take when desired and Cesare and his wife will always help to guide you to the best trips on Etna, good places to eat and...

This is a real example of Agri-Bed and Breakfast: you are guest of a Family Farm in the green of the Etna. Genuine and simple…: Guest of the real Sicily. Cesare, the owner, works from the morning to the evening in his fields of fruits, olives trees and vegetables, but always there when needed. Sit in the shadows of the... More

Cesare welcomes his guests in a reconverted farm amidst his citrus gardens, with views up to the sea and the Etna. We enjoyed the easy-going tranquility of the place, having breakfast (with plenty of fresh orange juice) in the lovely light breakfast room, relaxing in the garden and strolling through the orchard in the morning or evening. Cesare is discrete... More

The Casa di Pippinitto is a real gem! Our stay with Cesare on his farm property on the east coast of Sicily was one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily. The rooms are spacious and clean, with comfortable beds (I like firm beds). The furnishings are basic, but more than adequate. And the newly renovated bathrooms in our... More

sitting in the garden at Casa di Pippinitto is a treat. Host Cesare is very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean though the neighboring dog kept us up. Highly recommend it to those who want an alternative to the more formal hotels. Easy to get to Etna and up the coast.
