Great b&b, was surprised by the level of cleanliness and service. Would recommend for everyone that is searching for a cheap, cosy and a not too far place from Etna!!!

Lovely welcome from Pina when we arrived and she made sure we were settled in. Stayed two nights and breakfast highly recommended. Room clean and spacious and Etna only 20 mins easy drive so perfect location for touring the area.

We stayed in this B&B in april 2010 for one night before heading up to Etna.
- The location is perfect for this purpose as it is just 20min away from Refugio de Sapienza
- Clean and tidy.
- Very peaceful place.
- Breakfast was fantastic, with home made croissants and mermelade from the owner. It was great fuel for our climbing to Etna!
- Signora Pina was sooo sweet.

100% recommended if you want a relaxing place before heading to Etna.

We received a call from the owner of La Giara saying that she had accidentally over-booked, but had found us a place at nearby Tomasellis. Pina Tomaselli rescued her friend by meeting us at La Giara and showing us the way to her B&B. After a good night's sleep and a fabulous breakfast of freshly baked croissants, bread, boiled eggs, cheese, salami, 3 homemade jams, and juice, we realized that perhaps we had been lucky after all! The Tomasellis are a nice family -- their son is traveling the world working in various social service projects and carrying the message of the Intl Program on the Elimination of Child Labour and Amnesty Intl's fight to stop violence against women. The B&B is close to the base of Mt Etna and only a little over an hours drive to Taormina. The Tomasellis can arrange for 20% off vouchers for the Mt Etna funicula and tours. The only down side was some barking dogs in the neighborhood and a bit away from the best restaurants in town, but the owners gave us good advice about a place to eat.

This B&B is run by a friendly host who provides an exellent breakfast. The location is very convenient for visiting Etna, walking into town or finding your way to the motorway. Its also quiet and clean.

The bed and breakfast di Alfio Tomaselli is by fare and away the best place I have stayed at within Nicolosi (6 trips now). The rooms are comfortable with firm beds and ample bedding for the cooler winter nights, although the rooms are well heated and double glazed. There is lots of helpful information in the way of pamphlets, maps etc. and the proprietor of the house is always willing to help find out specific information such as current weather conditions on Etna, for you. However, what sets this B&B apart from others is the quality of the breakfast experience that is very homely with plenty of lovely food, fresh coffer, hot chocolate, freshly squeezed blood orange juice, mozzarella and salami, bread etc etc. there is even bottles of mineral water available at no extra cost it would seem; as we used half a dozen during the three days we stayed and were not allowed to pay for them. Even the end was nice with a warm double kiss as part of a farewell that has left a lasting present impression and a keenness to stay with them again soon.
