We walked by the hotel, and just noticed the sign of the rooftop bar, and decided to pay a visit. The hotel receptionist kindly pointed us to the lift, and while it was and little anonymous when we stepped out, it was a major WOW factor when we entered the bar lounge area. The drinks served by the very competent... More

High above the bustle of Catania, the Etnea Roof Restaurant is an oasis of understated excellence. Each dish was imaginative and of very high quality with faultless fine dining service. With a morning flight out, this was the perfect setting for the last evening of a week in Sicily. Greatly recommended.

After more than 3 weeks in (a very hot) Sicily, we spent the final evening dining at this roof-top restaurant of the UNA hotel, where we were staying. The sky was dark, the lights of the city outlined the long straight streets, and the lights of the villages on the slopes of mount Etna twinkled in the distance. After a... More
