Only the top Chinese restaurant in Catania! I have been going there for six years, and I'm ever happy about food and service! 🔝

Came here with a friend for a change of scenery and some different food and I'm extremely pleased. Best Chinese rice I've ever had, noodles were delicious as well. Very affordable. €2 - €4.50 per dish, more than fair portions. All around great experience.

Friends introduced us to this place; first Chinese Restaurant we've been to since arriving here in Sicily. Food was pretty good; curry, fried rice, egg rolls, beef & broccoli, and other dishes...all were good with the exception of the wonton soup; wasn't crazy about it, but our friends were. I didn't give it 5 stars because they don't have high... More

We were in need of a change up from all the pizza and pasta and went to Il Mondo for some Chinese food. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and reasonable prices. Portions were great and great variety. We had the duck and bamboo which was great. The servers even made us seasonal veggies off the menu... More

We had a wonderful experience for lunch. The menu is quite extensive and varied and the choices are great. After being in Sicily for 4 years we are always looking for something different. It was fresh and well prepared. The service was quite good too.

Food not bad but really not great either. Most of our dishes were way too salty. Very cheap and friendly though.

This hotel was in a perfect location for us because we were staying at the NH Bellini, barely 5 minutes walk away. If you are staying further downtown then I'd either walk or take a taxi because street parking is scarce in this area. Remember that you are in Italy where for some reason many people speak little or even... More

Quick service and very cheap, but the worst Chinese meal we have had for a very long time. Good Chinese food is fresh and bright and tastes of itself. This was dull and brown and tasted only of MSG.

Il Mondo is our go to Chinese restaurant in Sicily. The food is great and they have a huge selection [much more to offer than the delivery places back in the states]. We've tried numerous dishes and have always been impressed. Their egg rolls are the best I've ever had and the roast duck is to die for. And the... More
