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

We were not so impressed by this restaurant, that was recommended by the B&B where we were staying. Service was extremely slow, food nothing special. Perhaps we were just unlucky...

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

That said, the restaurant is beautiful, great atmosphere and the food is to die for, home made pasta and delicious sauces, pasta... 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!
