Authentic & amazing pizza!

Glad our hotel recommended this nearby spot when we were looking for a pizza spot for dinner. We have enjoyed pizzas all over Italy, and these were fantastic! A very generous size (we each took half a pizza home and scarfed it for breakfast before our morning flight...it was so good, I didn't even... read more

We had dinner inside and the decorations are very nice and the air conditioning is working pretty well. We found the service polite and friendly and the plates we took for appetizer and main course we're very good and well executed. Many people were eating pizzas which looked like very good. Overall it is a place to go, just make... More

Good selection of food including vegetarian. Good wine selection. Place is not as busy as Fud and therefore can heat yourself talk! But too many street vendors in the evening if you sit outside.

A really good fine dining on perhaps the nicest and the busiest restaurant street in Catania. The menu is very creative and inviting, a perfect mixture of the rich tradition of local cuisine and local products and modern view on the restaurant cooking. We were there in a big company (about 25 people), we took second meat courses (il manzo... More

Our receptionist at our hotel suggested we try a centrally situated restaurant in Catania. In a lane in town with lots of other eateries visited by tourists and locals alike. Menus shown to us on their I pads. Sat outside in the alley. Service indifferent. Waiters and other staff felt they were far more important than the customers. Regulars were... More

The restaurant is next to many others on the same street, but we chose it on the recommendation of the hotel. We had two pizzas which were large but both uninspiring; below supermarket standard. Wine, be the glass, was also rough. We wouldn't return or recommend it.

We only had one night in Catania before flying back and we walked pass this restaurant, which looked good. We arrived quite early ( 8pm)and there were only one other table with guests, so we were able too see any food before we ordered. So when our pizzas arrived we were quite surprised; they are huge! if you don't have... More
