“Delicious pizza cooked in wood oven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Situated in a quiet area. Possible to dine inside or outside - few metres away from the sea. Relaxing atmosphere. Pizza is gr8. Cooked in the wood oven - providing that high temperature which gives that extra taste to the pizza...vast menu to choose from. Service was acceptable but staff cordiality leaves much to be desired. Prices are very reasonable. Setting is very informal. If you are in the area and you want pizza, it is highly recommendable. Since this pizzeria is still without pictures, I am uploading three :)

“Pizzeria with terrace overlooking the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Santa Tecla is a hamlet of the town of Acireale, built on lava erupted from Etna and come up here into the sea, many centuries ago. The pizzeria is in the center of the village, and has a terrace that overlooks the coast of black lava rocks. In this picturesque setting you can enjoy good pizza following the Sicilian taste, that for those who are trained is distinguishable from that of other parts of Italy: a dough consistent and at the same quite dry.
The pizzeria hasn't refined features, but for that who are looking for economy without sacrificing a certain quality. It is very popular in summer: it is advisable to book, especially if you want a sea view.
