I've only ever gotten the pizza and I am a huge fan but their other offerings look really good as well.

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

Among the dishes ordered - we had the nero pasta (squid ink) in a prawn bisque with salted cod fish which was delicious, different! Someone else ordered the pizza with pistachio which was tasty as well but I found that overly salty due... More

Very nice dinner at this restaurant in a thrilling atmosphere at the center of Catania. Liked the service and the great mediterranean food. The pizzas were also awesome.

The Pizzas were terrific and so large we were wishing we'd shared until they boxed up the leftovers for us and we got to eat them the next day. I loved the courgette pizza (zucchini). We also savored a selection of cheeses, salami and marmalade that was so delicious. They make an effort to use Sicilian products.

When advised to go to Via di S.Filomena by the salesman at a nearby dress store I was a little betwixt and between I was surprised by the quality of the black ink tagliatelle with seafood broth. It presented beautifully in a deep glass dish which contained the generous zoumi of seafood. The pasta was as fresh as can be... More
