We dined at this restaurant during our first night in Catania. There is absolutely nothing to criticise - the personnel were very friendly and most importantly, the food was excellent. All four of us had different dishes and they were flawless.

“Very good food in a stunning venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

While staying at the UNA Palace Hotel, we decided to try the restaurant. Rather pricey, we had nevertheless a lovely meal in a sophisticated setting. Staff were very attentive. Not a place for little children as food and service are rather formal.

Dear Madame ,
thank you for writing your positive review and sharing your "tasty"experience with other travellers, comfirming us that you really appreciated both our delicious courses carefully prepared by our chef de cuisine and our panoranic terrace with breathtaking view to majestic volacano Etna and the historical core of Catania city.

Our Etnea Roof is indeed an exclusive location for spending magic and unforgettable moments and why not drinking and eating the "taste of Sicily", with affordable prices.

We hope you will experience in the near future our Restaurant, as well as our America Bar and our typical Sicilian Breakfast at the Etnea Roof, even with your children realizing that although the ambiance is elegant and glamour, it can be also suitable for the tinies. Of course, we understand that probably the magic ambiance of our terrace can be mainly appreciated by parents instead of children but we are a fond for making both feel at their ease, because our staff, as you noticed, is really attentive to all our guests' needs.

Looking forward to offering you one more time" very good food in a stunning venue" at UNA Hotel Palace,

Best regards,
Very best regards
