Wasn't sure what to expect as we entered this Trattoria, as all tables were empty despite many other restaurants being busy. However, more fool them as the food was lovely and the house red wine was the best we tasted in two weeks. The menu seems rather limited and mostly meat including horse which is not to our taste.

Real sicilian dishes with a local touch. One of the few with real sicilian chef... like a 5 stars grandma! You may find many meat based dishes in the menu, but they also offer you some dish of the day with fresh local fish. And it means a lot about the care of the guests... the staff is absolutely professional... More

Signor Francesco ed Alessia make the experience outstanding. Here you will find the best antipasto and horse grilled meatballs in Catania. The sarde a Beccafico and pasta al nero di sepia, swordfish, or sugo di sarde al finocchietto are simply delicious. Excellent value for your money.

This trattoria is excellent! Kindest staff possible, very good prices and superb food! Antipasti are excellent ....though to eat only one plate of these phenomenal flavorful (freshly made every day) dishes. Ask for pasta specials to Signor Francesco or to Alessia and they will kindly offer the specialties of the day. Try swordfish pasta and pasta al nero di sepia.... More

Efficiently run by a brother and sister team this little trat has tables set out in a narrow street that barely leaves enough room for the (fortunately) light vehicle traffic. Horse meat is a particular delicacy in Catania and after the superb help yourself antipasti we had a plate of mixed horse and pig meat with some excellent chips. The... More

Really good food, loved the fish soup. Starters terrific. Very kind staff. Would recommend to people, but be aware soon crowded after 8:30pm. Don`t come too late when you are hungry and need some food asap. Otherwise, enjoy a Gin Tonic next door in a bar and wait for a table. Relaxed atmosphere! Prices low, although food of high quality.
