Service was excellent, and the location superb! Compared to other restaurants in the area, the quality was much better, while the cost was actually less.

This restaurant is a gem. The food is as delicious as it is attractive, see pictures. The staff is friendly and attentive. The views of Mt Etna are stunning. Breakfast here is a special treat and enough food for a day. Highly recommend.

A rooftop restaurant; the friendliest place we experienced during our 4 day stay. The staff are very smart, professional, polite and helpful. We booked a table with a view and what a view, fabulous. The food? Sadly it didn't quite match everything else, firstly hot food served on cold plates is never a good idea...I'm loathed to complain further because... More

The view of Mt Etna is fantastic and the breakfast was the best ever! Cuttlefish ink arancini, caponata, cannoli, fried ricotta, eggplant parmesean, wonderful coffee, beautiful china, excellent service from Vanessa, mille grazie!!! It was perfect. We were too full to try breakfast granita but may come back later for their granita tasting (every day from 3-6:30).

We made a reservation in advance and were seated outside. The view on Ethna is really nice and the lights of the terrace create a very nice atmosphere. The food was good but what me amused the most was our table assistant (I can't even call this person a waiter). He was so attentive, gave such a strong feeling of... More
