Nice local restaurant. You need to pay attention when looking for the entrance, it is flush with the road and hard to see. Staff are welcoming and quality of the food was 5 star.

If you walk down the small lane, you wouldn't expect this big and cosy restaurant. We went here twice, and it was both times completely full with locals. The dishes we had were all delicious and the service was very good. Why not five stars? At least for Italy, such a typical ristorante with great food is nothing very special.... More

This was a recommendation of Lonely Planet and it turned out to be a good one. We were on on our way from Etna to Catania airport, and needed a sustaining meal to get us through our non-catered flights. The restaurant is spacious, well laid-out and with pleasing interior decor. The starters - buffalo cheese salad and bresciola - were... More

We arrived around 9.30pm - very late for Brits - when the restaurant was getting very busy. This certainly affected the service, as the staff were run off their feet. However, it is a very nice restaurant and the food was good and reasonably priced. We only had pizza so can't comment on the full menu but other people's dishes... More

Visited here after driving and walking around Etna. Perfect Sunday outing with the family. Fixed price offering of 22 Euros a head delivered antipasti, pasta and dessert, and drinks, incl a litre of tasty Sicilian vino rosso for me and the bride. Service attentive, esp given a very busy restaurant (even in the off-season - says something!) Also as a... More

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.
