Very very very good food, very nice waiters who had fun at their job and did everything to make sure we had a perfect night. We really loved it and would reccommend it to everyone who wants a special experience diner.

After much debate reading the reviews of this restaurant by fellow travelers, we decided to give it try since it was 2 blocks from our #1 Trip Advisor Hotel and there were no other restaurants in the area. We braced ourselves for a possible disaster...More

Vacationing in Sicily, found the name in a travel guide, and it didn't let us down. The service was personalized and impeccable from the first moment. You should ask to pick your fish from the batch of FRESH catch they have on an ice display....More

A bit strange that this restaurant is relatively lowly rated in TA, yet earns a place in the top five Catania restaurants in the Michelin Guide. The location is a few kilometres North of the centre of Catania, so really only accessable by car. Our...More
