This restaurant offers a wide range of local food including fish and meat dishes. My fried calamari are too dry and I am not impressed with fishes either. However, my friend's pasta is good though. I will give a second thought to people's perception about Sicilian food!

Some of the best food I've had. I loved the service- treated as an equal. For couples try the shared starter.

We dropped in on a sundaynight when the reastaurant was almost full. They prepared a table in a corner which was already quite full. The food however was excellent as were the prices. Service could be better as one of our waiters was n't really friendly....

They pride themselves on the secret to great Italian cooking. As to say ... prepare high quality ingredients simply. Great service and friendly waiters made for a wonderful evening.

We went there even though we didn't book a table beforehand and still the owner allowed us to dine there. We ordered a plate of traditional Sicilian antipasti and pasta. It was all very tasty and the service was so nice! Also the prices aren't inexpensive at all. I definitely recommend this place if you're staying in Catania!!

We've spent a great evening there with awesome (!) food. Our waiter was Roberto, a really likable guy who has suggested us good stuff from the menu. You should check out the Spaghetti Carbonara - awesome!

The food was delicious and the service was very close. The waiter is super nice and he made us feel at home. We payed 40€ for 3 plates of pasta, 1/2 lt of wine, 1 big bottle of water, 1 antipasto siciliano for 2 and 1 desert. Great place
