Not too bad service also, nice, chilled place on a hot day. Definitely recommend tuna steaks and strawberries with lemon sorbet.

Like in the title - good place to eat fishes and frutti di mare. Up there is a terace with a view on duomo.

This was the first place we ate in Sicily after checking into our hotel, and we were determined to return there before leaving, which we did a week later. A quiet courtyard upstairs took us out of the noise and heat of Catania in July; the waiter was fantastic, unobtrusively guiding us through both menu and wine list to some... More

I tried pasta with sea fruit and it was delicious. The surrounding is amazing since on the balcony you're sitting right next to the Duomo. The waiter was attentive and nice, I would have preferred he replied to me in Italian since I was also talking in Italian.

I was in Catania for business and this is the place the two local Italians took me for dinner. It's at the top of their list of places to go. We started with the seafood soup. It's not really soup. It was a lot of muscles and clams in a sauce with some bread. It was really good and the... More

Since last time I had dinner there, service has decreased. Bottle of water was served already opened and order took more time than other times.

The food was tasty, and the service was good. The menu items didn't stray too far from food you would see on a typical Sicilian restaurant. Overall everyone(except one person) in our group of seven were pleased with their meal. So...it's good, but not memorably good.

I came back in this restaurant after many years, and I have to say that it was always very very good. The atmosphere in this big room like an old cavern is perfect, and the food also. It is not expensive, and it is almost in the city centre, just at the beginning of the main street (via Etnea), in... More
