“Right on the town square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Gianni bends over backwards to help you with your stay, from calling restaurants to make reservations, to sending someone to open up for me since I booked a room the night before. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and bat of all, had a balcony that opens onto the town square. I watched lots of activity for half the night- couples strolling together, lots of teenagers hanging out, a church group singing and passing out literature - loved it. Highly recommend it if you want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a likely Italian town-- and kitty corner t there an ruins.

Room Tip: There's no swimming pool but I can't seem to uncheck this box

This is a great B&B in the center of Catania. We only had one night here but really enjoyed our short stay in Catania. Gianluca was great and gave us some good tips about what to do with our short time. The location is great and we walked eaqsily to the Duomo and the Villa Bellini.

Our room was nice and the only downside was that the WIFI didn't work real well inside the room. In the common area it worked without any problem though.
Parking can probably be difficult but we were lucky to find a spot right by the B&B.
Breakfast was very italian with sweets and some huge cream filled pastries. If you want anything specific for breakfast just ask Gianluca the night before and he can get it for you.
This place is a great value!

Hello

Our walls are very thick about 75-100 cm so probably with some pc or mobiles wi-fi does not work well, i always say that we are very central so at some hours of the day can be difficult to find a spot, expecially shopping time so 10-12am or 5-7pm
We are in italy i serve the italian breakfast

Thanks gluca

The place is very well located in the centre of the town. The owner is very welcoming and will try to help wherever possible. The breakfast was offered at a very reasonable price and included a nice variety of pastries. The room was spacious and clean.

I stayed for a month at the B&B da Gianni e Lucia. I thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The location is so central that it is very easy to move in and around Catania. The owner, Mr Gluca is so helpful and he made me feel at home. Rooms are very neat and clean. I recommend this place if you are planning to stay in Catania.

We were suppose to stay one night at Gianni e Lucia but we felt home directly and slept over one more night.Moreover Gianluca gave us so good piece of advice that we had a great time without wasting time finding where to go,from the b&b you can arrive from the airport easily,no need to take a cab because everything is so close,for those who are looking for la dolce vita,Gianni e Lucia is the place where it starts.
Have fun like I did

A very nice B&B. Every time we come to Sicilia we stay here for a few days. And Gianni always has a special tip where to go or what to do in and around this beautiful island.

I like this place very much because it is right at the heart of Catania with so much to discover directly around the corner.

I cant`t wait to be there again.

Location is in the center of the city, but the appartment is terrible. Small, terrible, durty rooms. Sound insulation is awful. Bugs attacked us when we slept!!! If you go to Catania choose another appartment, maybe more expensive, but better.
