Bar and restaurant. I had some "tavola calda" pieces, arancini and cipolline (with onions) and they were very good. They also prepare vegetarian and vegan food.

Great food and excellent service. A very good choice for a stop between Mt Etna and Catania. Not a "tourist" place, no views or anything - just excellent Sicilian food at good prices. Full of locals.

This is our favorite place to eat in Nicolosi. They have a wide variety of food on their menu and it is very tasty. Many servers speak English and are prompt to serve. Prices are average.
