A wonderful spot for my birthday dinner. We sat on the top floor with an open air view of Mt Etna! There were literally five waitstaff, each graciously taking care of various needs. The food was beautifully prepared and presented - and delicious! Recommend highly!

The setting is incredible overlooking the multiple super yachts below and Mt Etna at the side. Food is quite simply Amazing. The service was incredible, we ended downstairs where we had booked an alcove to sit and danced the remainder of the evening. Perfect end to our 4 night stay
