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.

We had dinner in this restaurant. We got a table outside which is very nice on a hot summer night. The place is quite modern and they had placed candles on the street, which made it more kosy. The service was extremely friendly and could speak English. The food was quite good (more in the type of "big dish -... More

Very friendly service but the food is so average. For me is over price and for the same price i can get better food. Not doubt the atmosphere is good and is newly renovated so it looks very high end but the food is no way compare to the price. We have citrus risotto with shrimp but there is no... More

Safe to say this restaurant was unlike any other we ate in during our week in Catania, very high end, the meals were different to your usual Italian/ Sicilian 'traditional' tourist restaurants and you could tell everything was fresh and well put together, the waiting staff and chefs were excited about the dishes and it showed. We first tried to... More

We went there on a Saturday night without making a reservation first (we didn't know) but we were served after waiting for a few minutes. The food was very nice and fresh and service was also great. We sit outdoors and next to the kitchen, so we could see everyone working passionately in there! It is an expensive restaurant, but... More

Excellent little restaurant beside the hotel we were staying in. Luca and the other waiters could not have been more attentive. We had chicken stuffed with veg and meatballs in lemon for our mains and they were divine. Tiramasu and cheesecake deserts were delicious. I had a bottle of the local brown beer and although dear at 12e it was... More
