“Great pizza, slightly slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I dined here twice. It was next to our hotel and convenient after a late flight in.

We stayed cleared of the English menu as it was more expensive but the pizzas all under €10 and delicious!

Once served it was hard to get staff's attention for the bill or if we wanted another drink but they were friendly nonetheless.

Overall reasonably priced for a very tasty pizza in Catania.

“a delightful corner in Catania”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Less than a block from the busy row of restaurants plying the tourist trade, Al Cortile Alessi sits atop a short flight of steps a berween the busy shopping street Etnea and the historic Crocifera. A lovely courtyard, honest food, decent prices and most of all, our attentive, knowledgable and friendly waiter Alessandro made our evening very special. The fried calamari appetizer was fresh and tasty and the light pasta in wild boar sauce were especially good. Very nice house wines.

“Good intentions but too busy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

It is a pity I have to rate this resto so low. The setting is nice and the atmosphere good. We had swordfish and Sicilian wine. The fish was very good and the wine likewise. However, what makes me rate you down is the poor service. It is OK that your staff is not well experienced in English, but being treated like we are not noticed and the staff being so busy we could have walked out without paying is NOT acceptable. So if you want decent treatment stay away. Sorry.

“Nice food, lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

A very reasonable restaurant next to our hotel. Service with a smile, Favio and Alessandro, our waiters made our friends 50th celebrations a memorable one. The food was very good and the atmosphere relaxed yet jolly!
