We are really thankful for all the care and accomodations.

Warm and friendly owners! Food was always delicious. Everything was too so great!
This fantastic place is in a good location, so you can move and travel easily.

I strongly recommend "Torre del Grifo" as the best solution to live in Sicily while travelling.

This place is recommendable. The owners (living in the same house) are very friendly and helpful. They supported us with every inquiry we had. The location is about the half way between Catania and the Etna south station. Rooms are spacious and if you'll get any on the first view, you'll have a great view either over the sea or towards the impressive Etna's peak. Go there in April, May or June.
You may use the kitchen if you want to, breakfast is served upon your individual get-up-time and free parking places are available behind the house. Ideal for round trips, bikers, couples, small families, mobile seniors.
There are not really negative issues. So, this place is hardly accessible without a car, motor cycle, or at least a bike. Some may complain that the TV is not SAT-TV but terrestric broadcast with more ore less noisy Italian standard channels. Some may miss WiFi. If you are a very young couple then you should ask for the room on the ground floor that is the farthest away from the breakfast hall because the walls are very thin (a common problem in southern Italy). For party people, there are no appropriate places nearby and going to Catania at night is not comfortable at all.

We've spent several days with our kids.
All of us enjoyed very much our stay, clean and confortable rooms, the view of Etna, the peacefull location and most of all the warm attitude of the owners, who spared nothing to make our visit very enjoyable. Breakfast was very good.
Location is good - while providing easy access to Etna, it is in a quiet area, and also getting around is easy (the tangentiale is not far).
Grazie Anna and Mimo.

My husband, I and our friend have spent 3 nights in "torre" in mid-October of "09. Before that, we'd stayd in several b&b's and "agriturismos" throughout Sicily, which we liked very much. We prefer this kind of travel because, unlike hotels, we deal with real people who are interested in our satisfaction with the stay. I thought that 'Torre" was special, because we felt welcome there. The service Anna and Mimmo provided was outstanding. The area where b&b is located was very beautiful: Enta, forests, old architecture. And the village people were most helpful. In short, we hope to be back.

This places is one of the best establishements we have ever been to. The facilities are great, updated and clean, but above all I would point at the kindness and proximity of the owners. They really make you feel at home ,they give you all the advice you need and even become your friends.
It is a great place both for relaxing and for excursions. Definitely we would go again.

My wife and I slept two nights in B&B Torre del Grifo.
Anna, Mimo (and all family) gave us wonderful filling of familiar hospitality.
It is a beautiful house in a beautiful area. The double room is excellent and the breakfast as well.
The parking is inside the yard of the house.
5 minutes to Nicolosi on the way to Etna Mountain, 30 minutes to Catania Airport and less then hour to Taormina.
