I have seldom seen such a poor service; the 2 waiters made us feel that our presence was not welcome (maybe because we have four kids ?), even though the restaurant was nearly empty ! It is a pity, because the place is nice; the food was good, but certainly not good enough to compensate for the worse service we... More

This place is so classic. The food was great (we had Pizza and gnocchi), service was excellent and the overall evening was lovely. We were even served complimentary dessert wine and local cookies. Don't miss out.

The mozzarella buffala is absolutely delicious, the antipasti of the house are average, a little disappointing but the owner was very kind. It is opened for a late lunch

The antipasti were rather average, not served hot and not very exciting. The pistachio mushroom pasta was very average: the pasta was fresh but the sauce was a bit bland. The veal cutlet in lemon sauce was quite good actually, nice sauce and nice meat preparation. The lemon tart was a disaster: a sponge cake with sad frosting and really... More

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening. We had a wonderful meal in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was nice and the food was good. The pizzas were huge. Would recommend this restaurant to those who spend the day at the etna and then want a good meal in a rustic place.
