I loved their pizza and the staff was very kind and friendly. Great wine, wonderful pizza and very nice people working there. My # 1 spot for pizza in Catania.

We had an excellent meal selected from a very imaginative menu and it was reasonably priced. It gets busy quite early on in the evening, it was recommended by our hotel receptionist.

A good organisation and management pays back immediately We hardly visited a restaurant able to handle so many tables and incoming people in such a nice, polite and good manners as the guys of Il sale are doing. The meal is really very good one, the many waiters keep watching your desk in case of any need and the kitchen... More

It is a lovely restaurant on a road that only comes alive at night. They use their own produce oil which is very tasty.iIt was recommended by our hotel as we were only after having a pizza. But what a pizza we got, a simple margarita very tasty with lots of cheese and the one with asparagus had lots of... More

First class food and service with great wine to complement the food. The initial serve of breads was a welcome surprise with a great range of flavoured breads. I then had a fennel and orange salad with nuts and dried fruit to start. It was very refreshing. Followed with beef with smoked buffalo mozzarella, also excellent and cooked exactly as... More

The presentation of food was great but I found the combination of flavours in the food didn't work together. Over 100 euros for bottle of wine and 3 courses for me and my husband. The most expensive place I ate at in Catania and my least favourite. Also the service in between courses was very quick and I felt they... More

Recommended by our host at the B&B we stayed at. Very helpful and friendly staff. Menu is in Italian and we needed some assistance which was willingly forthcoming. Food quality was excellent and their wine recommendations matched perfectly. We came back for a second evening during our 4 night stay in Catania. Try the pork main meal which is served... More

It's not a typical menu and that's a good thing. I got tired of high expectation seafood in Catania only to be let down. This restaurant has a nice variety of flavors and all I tasted were good, including, and maybe especially, the pizza, how bourgeois. I'll eat here for a third time, I never do that, tomorrow. No lunch... More

We had dinner at the Il Sale restaurant upon recommendation of our hotel reception staff. This restaurant with an extensive wine list has tables on the narrow but calm Santa Filomena street and we were lucky enough to get the last one without reservation. The dishes were all excellent and very tasty: Pork cutlet filled with mushrooms, pork fillet baked... More
