We were in Catania for a day on a road trip across Italy and had dinner here. Very good food, ambiance on outdoor seating and service was excellent.

This restaurant serves traditional Sicilian dishes, finely delivered. We particularly enjoyed the insalata catanese (with orange slices, fennel, olive oil and balsamic vinegar), as well as the very tasty pasta con sarde (spaghetti with a sauce of crumbled sardines, fennel and seasoning). The service is quiet and agreeable. One of the good options in an area well served with great... More

We were the first the night we visited but felt right away comfortable and welcome. For starters we had mixed grilled vegetables and a rustica salad, then we ate pasta Norma and grilled horse steak. Everything was perfect and tasty. The waitress was very friendly and quick. With a quarter of wine we paid 25€ which is very reasonable. We'll... More

it is not a big restaurant , decorated in Sicilian style . offers typical Sicilian food. you can eat dinner for two for 20-30 euros. They offer a delicious antypasti ,baked meet rolls and very good wine. You can also try horses burger.

If you are looking for an authentic and delicious local food this is the right place. All the option in the buffet were excellent and the veal rolls are delicacy. And last but not least- for sure it was value for money.

Wasn't sure what to expect as we entered this Trattoria, as all tables were empty despite many other restaurants being busy. However, more fool them as the food was lovely and the house red wine was the best we tasted in two weeks. The menu seems rather limited and mostly meat including horse which is not to our taste. A... More

Real sicilian dishes with a local touch. One of the few with real sicilian chef... like a 5 stars grandma! You may find many meat based dishes in the menu, but they also offer you some dish of the day with fresh local fish. And it means a lot about the care of the guests... the staff is absolutely professional... More
