It's the best place in Catania where you can eat healthy food, simple and vegetarian. Also once you get in you will feel like at home, even better then! You should go at list once and I am pretty sure you can't wait to come back. Thanks to Salvo THE BOSS and Peppe THE PHILOSOPHER. Marilena

The food was way different than all other "regular" Italian restaurants. Quiet a rich selection of certain dishes typical for Sicily. I would recommend every Vegetarian but also all other food lovers to discover that sweet little restaurant when they come to catania. Wine and service were also really remarkable. Next visit in Catania I will definitely come back here!

This little gem was recommended to us by our B&B on our first day in Catania, and we were so impressed that we ended up having lunch in only one other establishment during our five days in the city. La Cucina is essentially a buffet (prepared in a kitchen overlooked by the seating area) with around a dozen different dishes... More

We where fortunate to get the seats closest to the kitchen, so we could peek at the chef working. He seemed as curious of us as we of him :-) We had some lovely mix of grilled artichokes, green peas-dish, rice with broadbeans and some kind of veggiethings made with chickpeaflour. For desert we had a chocolate cake and one... More

My husband and I came here on a recommendation from our B&B just down the road. We shared two mixed plates. All of the food was excellent and definitely the best we have had in Sicily. It was all so fresh with our favourites being the rice salad and the pumpkin salad. The waiter spoke perfect english and was very... More

After going inside without knowing anything about this place and with no knowledge of the Italian language, we found a unique restaurant with delicious food. The owner is very nice, he tried to explain us the menu and we ended up picking random items from the menu by his recomendations, which they all were great. Very recommended place!

Super little restaurant just off of the viale Etnea. Lots of choice and helpful, friendly staff. Desert was excellent too and the whole meal inexpensive. Not to be missed.

Having eaten at 'Cucina Dei Colore' over two years ago, when last in Sicily, I was very much looking forward to my return visit last week. What a disappointment. The food was just as good as my previous visit, but unfortunately the service left a lot to be desired in comparison. The first time I ate there the staff were... More

We are vegetarians and we were searching for some restaurant which would give us some good vegetarian food. We accidentally noticed this one in the city streets near to piazza duomo and i must say we were so happy after having our dinner here. the food also had some elements of indian cuisine (we being indians, we could quickly make...
