We enjoyed the bar and restaurant so much the first night we returned the second night of our stay. Marco and the staff were very welcoming and provided great service. The views of Mt Etna are stunning.

Very good Service, very beautiful setup, Great view and excellent food...what else can you ask for? We ate here 2 evenings as it was so good on the first night we decided that we want to come again. The only downside is that the bathrooms are one floor down.
