We spent 3 days in a cooking course in the kitchen of the restaurant with Giulio (the chef) and Valeria (his wife). That was an amazing experience, we had a great time learning from Giulio how to cook meat, fish and pasta in the Sicilian style. The classes were 100% hands-on. Giulio is an incredible chef, but he also has the patience to show you how to do things and let you do it.

At the end of the classes, we sat around a table and we ate everything we had cooked; we had also the opportunity to share the lunch with Giulio and Valeria, so we were able to learn even more about the way the Sicilians live.

I would strongly recommend to contact them in case you are looking for a different experience in Sicilia.

Elegant surroundings, efficient service and good value for money. The chef personally selects fresh local ingredients daily and prepares mouthwatering dishes using seasonal produce

Il Cuciniere is simply a very good restaurant. Basta. As one has to use at least 50 characters I will repeat: The restaurant is very good.

My husband and I had been traveling throughout Sicily and had a day in Catania before our flight back to the US the next day. While at the Katane Palace Hotel we signed up for a great gastronomic tour. The visit to the Pescheria was most interesting and the cooking demonstration of the four dinner courses expertly prepared and explained. We had a very delicious meal afterwards of encrusted tuna steaks which could be served in any gourmet restaurant in any city of the world.

Superb cuisine. Definately the best in Catania. Not easy to find at first - keep the Katane Palace Hotel directions, there are many signs to it.
