Visited because we saw a good rating on tripadvisor and it was just what we expected. Reasonable prices, delicious cakes and friendly stuff. Would recommend.

Great food and very friendly staff. Compared to a lot of other cafes we visited, this was by far the best overall experience (quality, taste, price, customer service). Their granita was also the best compared to others we tried in catania.

The waitress did not come to oue table at all and yet they charged the service fee. Not acceptable! You can only stop by for reasonably priced caffee here (espresso 0.8 , cappuccino 1.3 euro).

Sampled so many canolis, Gelato and Arancini while in Sicily and these were by far, the absolute best. You can tell that they only use quality, fresh ingredients and they take pride in their work. They are also so very helpful and friendly as well....Can't wait to go back!!More

I looked for this gelateria following tripadvisor, but I was not impressed. Not very much flovours for icecream and the ambient also not impressive.

Having breakfast at Ficarra's was the highlight of our days spent in Catania. Warm hearted people, familiar atmosphere, gorgeous pastries. Never met so lovely family before. Felt like knowing the people working there for ages after three days. Wanna miss them a lot. So sad...to leave, cause each day having a breakfast there I felt like in heaven. Eating a pastry there fills You with the love it's made with. Thank You for the awsome memories, I'm so greatful for all the love we got, will miss You a lot. Best wishes to the whole family, Klaudia (the blondie from Antonello's)More

Amazing selection of cakes and pastries from this family owned bakery/cafe. We only called in for cake and coffee and the amount of choice available was particularly notable. Top qulaity and freshly made. Sweet and savoury oastries and arancini and more gives a broader choice...for lunch. Owner/staff helpful and friendly.More

We visited this cafe several times during our short stay in Catania. The coffee and pastries were wonderful but the warm welcome we received at each visit was the cherry on top. I’d highly recommend this establishment for snacks and coffee with a special mention...for the arrancini- they were delicious.More
