“A good meal for meat lovers (and yummy for vegetarians too!).”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

a fantastic restaurant, mid range price €50 a couple approx, original idea, fresh cuts of meat from all around the world you choose your steak and while you're waiting are served with a vast array of excellent typical sicilian anti pasti. For veggies these are more than enough to satisfy your hunger!
The service was great, and the food fresh and well cooked. A good selection of wine for all pockets is available. One down side was if you're not in the main restaurant in winter it is pretty cold in the covered terrace, luckily we were well wrapped up!

“Carnivore's delight!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Any poor reviews of this fabulous trattoria are churlish and must have been written by vegetarians: you get what it says on the tin, FANTASTIC, great value meat (and lots of it), fun wine (choice of one), great appetisers and pasta 'primis', service with a smile and an interesting variety of hunting trophies on the walls. Not a salad leaf in sight, highly recommended!

“M.e.a.t fiesta”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Saw an ad in a flight magazine. So we drove up there. Right at the foot of Mount Etna, is this village called Trecastagni. The place looks like a big chalet with a bear welcoming us. There's actually a butcher inside - choose your pieces of meat, and they'll prepare it for you. In the meantime, savored ourselves with antipasti...good courteous service. We enjoyed it!

Reviewed January 16, 2013

We went there with my friends to celebrate my birthday. I heard a lot about this restaurant. I'm a meat lover and I was sodisfied to eat a Fiorentine steak and very happy to find a fresh fried potatoes!!!!! It was amazing dinner, good service, very attentive personal and at the end the owner offered us homemade sweets cannoli siciliani with fresh ricotta and it was realy wonderful! I will recomend this place to my friends!
