Went with family and friends and had Canadian bison meat to eat. They have a selection of different meats to choose from and you can see the chef prepating food in their open kitchen

Had a wounderful experience when I visited with my work colleagues. Nice atmosphere, very good food especially for those who love to eat meat. You choose your cut and it is cooked to order. Good service.

Came here twice while staying in Trecastagni and both times the food was superb and the service was fantastic. On both visits we had sugestions on how our food should be prepared from the chef (and he was correct both times). Everything we ate was delicious and the waiters were very warm and friendly. Well worth the trip if you... More

Been to L'orso scuro on the recommendation of a friend. One of the best places in the Catania region for great steaks. Their pasta is also delicious.

We got to know of this place from another satisfied customer. The location also offers a B&B and a small farm. The food was delicious and we were welcomed and seated immediately. There is a good parking space also. For meat lovers this is the ideal place.

A bit 'out-of-the-way' , but then you'll get easy parking. Although I visit to exercise my carnivorous instincts, while there I am always spotting enticing platters on other tables, trying to make a mental note to try one on my next visit. Portions are generous, so I suggest that one considers sharing steaks, especially if it is to follow a... More

Coming here in a big group with no booking, we were made to feel welcome and seated immediately. The place has a butcher shop display with meats from which you can compare with the menu or choose directly from. The quality of meats was excellent, we opted for a mix of their sausages as a starter and then had our... More
