“Oasi at city center”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Nice and discrete restaurant.
Fantastic starters and delicious desserts. Great wine as well.
Secondi piatti are very good but not excellent.
Surely a place to reccomend where enjoy food and relax with some wine from a rich menu

“Real taste of Sicily!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Recently, we visited this great "ristorante" together w/ my family and it was a good choice, honestly! One of my local friend, Marco suggested us to try this place. The portions are good, the dishes are delicious, it's really a must-try category restaurant! Grazie! :)

“Lived up to all my expectations”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

I'd like to thank all those who have eaten here previously for their valuable reviews.
More and more am I relying on these Tripadvisor reviews as I travel around Italy for work.
Once again the reviews were spot on.
First impressions were excellent even though I arrived relatively early for Sicily Alberto was most welcoming and immediately brought me an aperitif.
having eaten pasta in Catania at lunch I was keen to have a light meal and Alberto duly obliged by bringing me a plate of 'crudi', oysters, swordfish, tuna, scampi and shrimp - exceptional!!
I followed this with another starter of mussels. My only regret was that I couldn't manage a second course and dessert which all looked so so appetizing.
The moment I know I'm coming back I'll be making sure I've got a table booked.
Check out the other reviews if you like, but I guarantee you will have one of the best meals you've ever had in an extremely welcoming atmosphere.
Thank you Alberto!

“Unique Experience”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This restaurant is a few streets back from the main shopping area. As you enter the proprietor is often there to greet you. When taken into the restaurant it is a bit like a large dining room in a house with white tablecloths and chair covers. The menu is extensive and very different with the owner Alberto being able to converse extensively about every dish and wine. I was given a prosecco while looking at the menu and considerable advice on choices. The two courses were excellent and home made bread was also added. When coffee was served, I had declined dessert, I received a plate of the most delicious small deserts. I am not a lover of desserts but these were not sweet but melted in the mouth. The meal was excellent value for the food, the atmosphere and the professionalism.
