Went twice, loved it both times.

It's on a little piazza that cars can't reach, so you have to walk a very short distance to it, but this restaurant is so worth it. Fresh fish - cooked Sicilian style - are the majority of the menu, the cooking is wonderful, the dining room is like a library; lined with wooden shelves stacked with... read more

Our B&B hostess recommended this restaurant our first night here. We went and were wondering if it would turn out to be a tourist trap. Luckily for us we were the only tourists in the place the whole night. Everyone there seemed to know the staff but us. Great atmosphere and decor for what we were looking for in a... More

Great food and service.Really good atmosphere even with only 1 other table occupied on a Monday evening inside this typical Sicillian restaurant . Starters were excellent and a choice from about 14 dishes where you can help yourself to a plateful for 5/6 euros. A number of specials on a board and the 4 of us all had a different... More

It is located near the center of Catania. We paid 20 euros and the food was nice. In the end they offered us a free canollo, which was excellent!

Had the mixed starter which I have to say was fantastic, the mains we had however were decidly average and a bit of a let down to be honest after the starters. All in all though if you are near by I would suggest giving it a look in but there are better and cheaper places in the vicinity.
