Nice restaurant with good food. A lot of local youngsters visit the place and it's quite crowded in the weekends. It's nice to visit the underground river in the cellar before dinner. A downside is that on the outside terrace, even though it's completely roofed, everybody is smoking (which seems to be normal in Italy).

We had a lovely pizza (try the one with almondpesto!) on a lovely thursday evening in this bustling place. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Kitchen opens at 20h, but it's possible to have drinks before. And visit the cave with little Etna-river downstairs!

We stayed next door in the hostel and had dinner here on our second night. After that experience we spent every other evenings here. This must be the coolest place in Catania. It is a hub for locals, so after a while it gets crowdy and not easy to get a table. They have a wide selection of Sicilian meals,... More

We had drinks at Agora upstairs - they have a great happy hour special and many very cool choices for cocktails and then had dinner downstairs. The service was great, they were so nice and checked on us a lot. The restaurant is very cool, it's in a cave underground with a river running through it! The atmosphere is great,... More

We've eaten various times here, once to try the €12 vegan degustation for lunch on a Sunday and just another random evening for dinner....the food is fabulous, there are always vegan options on the menu including DESSERT (this is important to me!) and the staff are great and know what they are talking about. Never disappoints! If you are around... More
