The view is great but overall the drinks are pretty expensive because it is at a nice hotel. Romantic if it is for a special occasion.

I would recommend popping in for the evening drink and happy hour. 15E for a drink and a self service tapas buffet that you can help yourselves to as many times as you would like. Stunning view of Etna in the background and friendly staff. Don't expect the world's quickest service though. With two staff covering a busy bar, you... More

Had the opportunity to take breakfast at a reasonable cost on Etnea Roof. It was a unique experience with an erray of divine food accompanied with a unique view of Etna. The service offered was excellent by our waitress Vanessa. She made sure that we were served well at any time.

Had a pre-dinner drink one night, lovely white wine and good service. The seats which looked like sofas.armchairs were harder than expected but overall a nice ambiance. Thought about staying for dinner but we had booked elsewhere.

Stunning views but incredibly slow service. That said, it's a lovely spot and doesn't matter that a bottle of Peroni is 5€

We saved the best for last. I wanted our group to enjoy their final meal, and dining at the Etnea Rooftop Restaurant was the perfect spot. Marco seated us at the perfect table as we looked on the sun setting on Mt. Etnea. The seabass, the amberjack and the chicken dishes were delicious. On a beautiful summer night, is was... More

Two visits this week, both amazing. The views are of course second to none. Make sure however to enjoy the full dinner menu, so many guests seem to pass through for only a drink or a snack and really are missing out on a wonderful evening. Superb food and service from Marco and the team. Attention to detail rarely found... More

I went there for dinner. The view is fantastic and the service was very good and friendly. Definitely recommendable for a drink. But the food.... I can understand the high prices in this location but still, I would have expected more than just average. Like really average in means of taste, all 3 courses (fish-homemade pasta- choclate heart) I can... More

We visited for the views and had reasonably priced and very nice cocktails sitting outside on the terrace at the 7th floor restaurant/bar. The bar snacks were pretty impressive - crisps, olives, capers, nuts. All complimentary. The waitress was on her own and a bit busy and forgot our order, but gave us that first drink free.
