We lived at the hotel and at our first evening we just went up to take a look at the weiw and the restaurant on the roof. The waitress who met us seemed more iritated than welcoming. The evening after we went up to have something to drink, but we did not feel that we where welcome. They served us... More

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

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€
