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

Have to make reservation. They will give you the ipad to look at the menu with pictures. The staff is very helpful on the menu. A bit too dar for the outdoor seating but since it gets dark really late during summer so is ok. The outdoor seating is in the alley and is quite narrow so if you don;t... More

We were glad to have spent our last night of the trip at this restaurant for 2 reasons. First, the pizzas were all to die for (I had the Il Sale, my husband had the Truffle/Boscaiola, my mom had Piccante, and my daughter had the Bufala) and secondly, they were so large that we had the leftovers for lunch while...

The waiters do not seem to speak much english but try to help in every way, they have ipads with translations and menus in english. on a road with lots of choice for restaurants, worth... More

Excellent food, excellent service , a lot of attention to details, good atmosphere . We liked seating outside to look on people passing by. We came for an early dinner otherwise it was necessary to order a place in advance.

I've eaten there many times and the food and the service have always been over the average. Pizza is really good but if you lean for a different dish (maybe pasta or meat) you won't regret you choice!!

Dined here 18 months ago and was a good meal but not memorable. This time it was a great meal, great wait staff that were super friendly to us and made very informed meal suggestions that turned out to be excellent choices. Started with the seafood antipasto....delish!! Then my husband, at the suggestion of our waiter, had the Sicilian beef(i.e.... More
