I just wondered around looking for place to have dinner. I found Il sale art cafe from tiny alley. Their menu looked very interesting. I took antipasto and primi piatto. There were many wines by glass, great for solo traveller! Waiters were always ready to help me, for my choices etc. Food was excellent. The antipasto plate had many cheeses... More

This is a great restaurant with superb food and wonderful staff. Our first night was absolutely perfect. the second night we arrived a bit before they opened and the beginning was rough, but that is because the staff was rushed. The food is great and the wine is superb. I highly recommend this.

Ate here on our first night in Catania. The restaurant is down a pretty street, which comes alive in the evening as there are so many eateries here. We arrived late evening and had a table outside. It was great to see that craft beers are catching on here and we had one of these to go with our very... More

Located in the busy yet quiet Santa Filomena, Il Sale offers a wide selection of great food and amazing local wines. The iPad with wine presentation and suggested food pairing is definitely a key point of the place, staff is friendly and very helpful, pizza simply amazing ! A definite must go (for diner) while in Catania

It was good I was not that hungry. I do not have international data service on my IPhone and rely on WIFI, therefore, unless I know before hand where I am going, I can't check the reviews at my hotel before I go out. It is costly to have a 24/7 data plan worldwide, so I don't. We were directed... More
