“Good Burgers in Catania..finally”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We came to just meet a friend for a drink but were pleasantly surprised by the cool decor and friendly greeting and very happy to see hamburgers on the menu. They even serve Naples style pizza, my personal favorite. It took a few mintues to get a table as the place was very busy and we were finally seated at a very long table rather close to others guests but we just went with the experience of "social dining". I noticed the Naples style pizza others were ordering and it didn't impress me at sight so I went for a burger and that was to me a good choice. Burgers in Italy can be quite inedible and this one I found seasoned well, great bun and the fresh toppings were a delight. My boyfriend had the vegan burger even though neither of us are vegans and I had a bite and it was even tasty. All the food and wine were very good, the servers moved much faster than most you find in Italy and we had fun with the seating even though that is not for everyone. There are other tables so you don't have to sit at the one long table. We have recommended it to friends and would go back again. Maybe I misjudged the pizza so maybe next time I give that a taste.

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I don't know what those other people were talking about. FUD was great! We went on a Saturday night around 8:00 and it was hopping. The real draw for us as Americans was a real burger. And boy, they were great! The interior is very nice, more of what Americans expect. Also, the food was almost less than we usually pay going out. We would go back, highly enjoyed it.

“Cat urine gross”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

The inside of the restaurant positively reeks of cat urine - eye wateringly so. The idea of a quality burger option in Catania is appealing however the food was mediocre at best and overpriced. Primarily a gimmick restaurant. FYI they don't accept Amex.

“Fashionable McDonald in disguise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

This fashionable fast food restaurant is supposed to be a reversed version of a fast food, with more trendy healthy and local ingredients, researched atmosphere, recycled paper napkins ecc. Unfortunately the food turned out to really be not more than a new modern revised version of McDonald and most of it was quite inedible. They have spent too much time inventing funky names for their hamburgers and too little to make sure the food is tasty or even warm ( my sandwich and potatoes were cold) . The bad taste in our mouth and a salty bill, this is what we left this place with.
