The hotel staff was SO helpful. They helped my husband with purchasing a bouquet of flowers and when we arrived at the restaurant the restaurant staff had set up our table beaufifully. Their service was great and we really enjoyed our meal. Excellent view of Catania and the Mt. Etna, but it is better before sunset, so you can actually... More

Gorgeous view of Mount Etna and the happy hour was wonderful. I also ate breakfast here one morning it was so so. I prefer the free breakfast in the hotel. Would recommend dinner and happy hour at the Etnea roof

Beautiful view of Mount Etnea and great food and drink to go with it. Lovely staff, it is a place you must visit for the view.

Food is expensive compared to local restaurants but it is so much better than the local restaurants. Definitely worth a visit if only for one or two evenings.

Though I did not eat but rather had a drink here I think this is a great place for people to meet and do the same. A really nice decorated room with scenic overlooks of the city and Mount Etna set the night off right!

I used trip advisor to find this place & I'm glad I went. The Dinner was great & the wine was very good. I watched over the city as the sun went down with Etna glowing in the background. It made for a really nice relaxing experience. The service was great, I had no issues. I plan on visiting again... More

Let me point out that I only had an aperitivo here, I didn't stay for dinner in the restaurant. The aperitivo is 10 euros for a cocktail (or wine, etc.) and there's a buffet thrown in. Great food, great quality (not always true of Italian aperitivi), and the staff are very warm and friendly. Plus the view is great!

Service is slow and uninterested, the food is average at best. The view of the Etna is the best aspect of the restaurant. (See my Una Hotele Palace review)
