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

Wow! We were told to come here for pizza by our hotel. They were absolutely amazing! We can back the following night for pasta. Even better! Can't rate this place enough... Please try it if you arrive in Catania for dinner!

We ate here twice on a recent excursion to Catania and thank the good lord the UNA Hotel told us this place had good pizza. They have an amazing array of pizza and a wonderful wine list. This is a gourmet restaurant that servies gourmet delicious pizza and wonderful wine. Maybe that's the norm for Sicily, but for an American... More

Went to il Sale Art Cafe with my wife and 4year old son. food is excellent but I was shocked that a plate of fried potatoes costs €5.00 and also besides that I was charged a coperto of €2.00 each even for my 4 year old son. Also portions compared to other restaurants are very small. The bread that was... More

The atmosphere of the street (outdorr seating) is very nice and the food is good, but it is very expensive for the quantity. The quality, instead, is very good.

From the pizzas to seafood, everything is perfect. The staff, the wines - it's a must in Catania. And the special tiramisu: we ate that twice. If you can't eat the huge (and not expensive!) pizza, they give you a take away box. One advice: Arrive before 22:00, or after 23:00, and you won't have to wait for a free... More

We were looking for a few days until we found this little gem of a street tucked away, and thank god we did. Buzzing little hidden street where we then found this restaurant as advised on here. I had a steak which was the best meal of the holiday and my boyfriend has a pizza which was his favourite meal... More

Really great pizzas for a decent price at €17 for two. We just ordered them to take away and the lovely owner gave us two free glasses of sparkling wine while we waited. The outside was very busy with a nice atmosphere and the inside, while slightly less full (it was a Monday!), was well decorated. Some of the best... More
