“Great food, great ambience, warmest welcome...!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Another well hidden gem for simple and authentic sicilian food. This place is not easy to find for tourists, but is apparently very well known by locals, given the one-hour waiting time we had to face on a Saturday evening, when no table reservations by phone are admitted. Very warm and friendly welcome and great ambience, combined with delicious meat dishes and best pizzas you can imagine make of this restaurant a very special place. Their large selection of special beers ("bières artésanales") is another outstanding feature that distinguishes Locanda Cerami from other local restaurants.

“A real treat!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

A high point of our stay in Sicily, with a truly warm and relaxing atmosphere, and excellent people. The owner and staff were a delight and we have not one complaint.
Excellent food, knowledge of beverage, and service with warmth and expertise.

“excellent restaurant”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

It is always a pleasure to come back to Locanda Cerami! I live in Berlin and when I go back to Sicily for holidays this place is a must. I truly recommend this restaurant to all visitors who would like to enjoy great food, friendly service and authentic atmosphere in the heart of the vibrant Catania! I can't wait to go back to Sicily again and bring my friends to this restaurant again!

“Nice location”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

During our visit in catania this restaurant was our favorite. The location is great, in front of the stairs of a church in a not to busy street.

The food is good, and presented in a nice way.

The staff was friendly and helpfull, serving us very fast altrough their english could be a litte better, but thats common in most of italy unfortunatly.

“Amazing place to eat!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The restaurant is amazingly located in one of the side-streets in the centre of the city. The nice location is not only about the central place, but first of all - the piazza it is located on. It`s a small place, closed on it 4 sides just in front of a beautiful baroque church - it gives you gorgeous feeling of cozisness.
The food was perfectly done - after 2 weeks of traveling in Sicily we were fool of seafood and there we could find juicy really well done steaks, we already missed so much. Good wine, nice design of tables, plates, cutlery, lamps, chill zone, fair prices completed our best impressions.
The owner of the restaurant was always there - watching around, asking if the food was ok - the best you could wish one of personal contact with locals.

As a result the "Locanda Cerami" was for us the best place we visited in Sicily for a supper, and especially in Sicily there is a hard concurrence to get such a review!
Really strongly recommended!
