This is a pretentious restaurant on the roof on the UNA Hotel. There are many charming and well-priced restaurants in Sicily; not this one. Of course one expects to pay a premium in a hotel and the view from the roof is quite special. However, we were very hungry, having found that the original restaurant we had booked was in... More

We stayed at the hotel and the view from the terrace was breathtaking. The rooms are alright but their gym is small. Rita, the hospitalities person is the best of her kind I've come across.

Not only did I stay at the UNA hotel, I also frequented the rooftop patio restaurant. Firstly, the view was spectacular. Having Mount Etna in the background was amazing. Secondly, being a rooftop patio (with shade!) it was a welcome retreat to the hustle and bustle of the city below. Most importantly the food and service was outstanding. I had... More

I went there without any reservation but they still manage to let me choose where I wanted to sit. The food was delicious and service was excellent!! Recommended good wine that goes well with my fish dish.. This is a very good place to take your time, enjoy the view, enjoy the food, and enjoy the service...

Came here late. Still great views and soft chill vibe. Luxury feeling. Not that expensive but not as cheep as a local bar. It's worth it. Service can take a while but relax and enjoy.

Had a good dinner - polpo was fresh, pasta just right and fish tasty. As a highlight the place had excellent service - attentive and generous. All this with a front row beautiful view on Mt. Etna.

We had a lovely meal in the roof top restaurant. The meal was a four course meal and every course was lovely. Marco and his staff were very polite and professional. Would recommend to anyone staying at this hotel.

Perfect place for enjoying a drink on the very beautiful Etna Volcano. Not the quickest service but who cares. Time stops on that roof bar. A sparking wine glass, sun and view on a volcano is just cool. They have some kind of buffet 'aperitivo' from 7 or 7.30pm. We didnt try but looked nice.
