Good vegetarian buffet. You pick how many items and pay based on that. They will fill up the plate for you. It is welcome change from the seafood and pizzeria/panini options.

The food and service are , its a bit expansive ( around 19 each with dessert) but it worth. Everything is fresh and on season.

Lovely space and great flavor profiles and unusual ingredients could be improved by being served hot, not tepid, and more attentive service.

I am still amazed by this. A vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Catania. Two years ago when I told my friends back in Sicily that I was vegetarian a roaring "mormorio" made the table tremble. "you are not going to eat prosciutto anymore?!". I felt the locals thought that being vegetarian was in the list of capital sins. Nowadays, coming back to... More

Personally, I wasn't impressed with the cuisine. The concept to serve different menu every day using only local and fresh products in itself is really great, but I found the cuisine quite plain, no taste explosions, I disliked some of the dishes.. They give you an opportunity to have a mixed menu of different dishes of the day, this is... More

It's the best place in Catania where you can eat healthy food, simple and vegetarian. Also once you get in you will feel like at home, even better then! You should go at list once and I am pretty sure you can't wait to come back. Thanks to Salvo THE BOSS and Peppe THE PHILOSOPHER. Marilena

The food was way different than all other "regular" Italian restaurants. Quiet a rich selection of certain dishes typical for Sicily. I would recommend every Vegetarian but also all other food lovers to discover that sweet little restaurant when they come to catania. Wine and service were also really remarkable. Next visit in Catania I will definitely come back here!

This little gem was recommended to us by our B&B on our first day in Catania, and we were so impressed that we ended up having lunch in only one other establishment during our five days in the city. La Cucina is essentially a buffet (prepared in a kitchen overlooked by the seating area) with around a dozen different dishes... More
