So many goodies...

I went in for the gelato and absolutely loved it. Double scoop on a cone for just 1.90 euros was a great deal too. I brought it outside across the street to eat by the harbour. The area is nice and quiet, less touristy. I came back and bought a few Sicilian sweets to carry away as gifts for... read more

After a long day touring around Catania with my family this establishment was recommended for its great local food and it didn't disappoint. We didn't actually use the restaurant to sit down as we took our food away but if the restaurant is anything as good as the food then I would highly recommend it. The staff were very friendly...

Very disappointed by this place. The ice-cream was ok but no better than a lot of other places in Catania and the cassatina looked good but had a very strange taste and texture.

If you came to Catania you must stop in one of the best "gelateria" in town!! Cakes as well are really delightful...”7 Veli” chocolate cake is my favorite taste.

Finally a good place where to eat gelato in Catania! There is not the sea spot but believe me the quality of the gelato it's all worth it!!! Ottimo posto dove mangiare un ottimo gelato, tra i pochi a Catania... Non ci sarà il mare ma ne vale la pena! Buon gelato!
