Attracted by the very Sicilian name and a modern interior decoration, we decided to try the restaurant. They present a menu with traditional Sicilian cuisine but with some touch of modernity at presentation. Service was a bit slow but courteous and attentive. To me, it's worth a visit.

We always find restaurants on the TA ranking close to our location. Mostly when we compare the score to the real experience it is let’s say ok. And we never write the opinion so really. But this time – todays evening – we decided to share our opinion because the score is NOT even close to reality. Or if you... More

This restaurant, besides having a very nice look, is delightful to those who want to enjoy Sicilian cuisine, and who want to experience dishes "from territory" different from the more usual ones. We were a group of eight people; I will tell only what I tasted myself, but I feel that my assessment is shared by most of my table... More

Excellent Food - traditional Sicilan updated. Good wine and cocktails. Modern and stylish decor with music to match. Young welcoming staff who spoke good English and told us about the local cuisine. We ate there twice during our stay. Not the cheapest but definitely worth it.

Ate here tonight with a few friends and had a really good experience. The food was fresh and vibrant. It had obviously been prepared with care. The service was outstanding - friendly, informative, seriously good. We enjoyed a beautiful rosato wine recommended by staff and it was so good we ordered a second bottle. Little touches like the thoughtful, generous... More

outstanding interior but a very poor cook. service was good, they accommodated our complain about Ravioli (it was ONE ravioli) with no stuffing, nothing inside (it was supposed to be stuffed with mushrooms, mozzarella, etc), for 10 euro. Overrated, for no good reason. Will give them a second chance if I get to Catania.

Went twice to the place in a very short time and both times had a great experience. Service is very friendly and professional and the food is simply excellent! Very well priced.
