Run by a retired couple, who are incredibly warm, friendly, helpful... a true Sicilian family. The place very homely (its a modified family home) and the rooms clean, comfortable. The hosts speak only Italian but that did not stop us from being great friends.

Signora Anna, Signor Mimmo and their family made us very welcome and were always at hand to help out with any queries we had. B & B is located at foot of Mt. Etna, with great views, yet close enough to Catania City centre. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. We really enjoyed our... More

We are really thankful for all the care and accomodations. Warm and friendly owners! Food was always delicious. Everything was too so great! This fantastic place is in a good location, so you can move and travel easily. I strongly recommend "Torre del Grifo" as the best solution to live in Sicily while travelling.

This place is recommendable. The owners (living in the same house) are very friendly and helpful. They supported us with every inquiry we had. The location is about the half way between Catania and the Etna south station. Rooms are spacious and if you'll get any on the first view, you'll have a great view either over the sea or... More

My husband, I and our friend have spent 3 nights in "torre" in mid-October of "09. Before that, we'd stayd in several b&b's and "agriturismos" throughout Sicily, which we liked very much. We prefer this kind of travel because, unlike hotels, we deal with real people who are interested in our satisfaction with the stay. I thought that 'Torre" was... More
