Well, I have problem to rate the restaurant. We visited it twice and we had two different experiences. First visit was excellent, good service, lovely food and drinks. My caponatina and pasta alla Norma were incredibly good..., my husband ordered fish and he said it was probably the best fish he ever had. Our son's food was the same good.... More

Found this trattoria when walking around the little streets of Catania. The lady was very friendly and sweet. We had the local antipasto followed with the best home made pasta along with some grilled fish. Did not have room for dessert. Will surely return once back in Catania. Sonia & Victor

Huge menu, very reasonably priced and adorable little trattoria. But everything we wanted and our back up options were not available so we ordered alternates which were just OK. The house wine was alright- a deal for $8/liter. We arrived there early at 7:30 so we missed the rush. The wait wasn't terrible so try to get there early. Would... More

Have been here quite a few times over the years. This time however we were all disappointed by the food and the very long wait. The caponata was nothing like a real caponata, and the pasta, though good, was not worth the extremely long wait (and I am used to waiting, but not to such a ridiculous extent). The tables... More

Service was good, food was excellent. We were the only tourists after a neighbouring table of two departed so only about 8 tables in all. Under €40 for the two of us with shared starter plat, 1/2 litre of red, sparkling water, mains and desserts.

Unpretentious and welcoming. We ate here on a Saturday night and just managed to get a table before the evening rush. A lot of reviews highlight the slow service but we didn't feel that it was any longer to wait than most places we tried in Sicily. The house red was excellent and the food was delicious. We had a...

Pasta a la Norma - fantastic. Incredibly good value. House white wine superb, lovely smell of honey from it. We knew from Lonely Planet Guide that service would be slow but it was definitely worth the wait.

Good Sicilian food. I'm told the pasta is made on the spot - of course it takes a little longer but the sauce was fresh and full of flavour. After a huge plate of gnocchi with tomato and mozzarella sauce I could only eat half my salsiccia so I got a takeaway pack. Not expensive - and comfortable for a... More
