We went here through recommendation for lunch and it exceed our expectations. A small, family run spot on the outskirts of town with a menu of Sicilians classics and some of the best homemade pasta we've had in Italy, and definitely the best on this trip to the Mt Etna region of Sicily. Also a great wine menu. The Pasta... More

We'd walked up to the Teatro Greco, climbed ever upwards to take in those amanzing views, and were slowly mwinding down the street toward the Duomo. We were feeling "peckish" after an early start from where our cruise ship was docked, and this Trattoria provded a perfect place to relax a while over a latte and a crostino, both of... More

We visited this restaurant as it was close to our accommodation and had good reviews here. We were the only diners (7.30pm on a Saturday night). There was no atmosphere at all; a large screen TV was showing football and a 10 year old girl was in the corner doing her homework. We were offered, as a special,sea bass served... More

Once we got there, we were nicely welcomed. Food was great, fresh. Plating was nice. Their white wine was awesome. Loved the olive bread as well. I ordered the nice octopus salad and fish. Delicious! Desert was average.

My wife and I ordered local seafood plates, which were very special and very tasty, a good variety of fish and various mollusks. In addition, they suggested great vegetables and cheese plates as well as local wine. Waiters were very friendly, and all their advice was very good. On the next day we came for dinner again, and they offered... More

May be it was just a bad day, this restaurant was recommended by our tour guide. We were staying at the Grand Miramare hotel, a couple of minutes down the road, and they booked the restaurant for us. Cool evening, cool welcome, rushed and frankly unimpressed. Food good but then told credit cards not taken and despatched to the nearest... More

A good reliable restaurant with nice food, terrace with lovely view. The young waiter/owner? who took our order was a little curt and rude to some customers. The wine waiter in the upstairs bar area was very helpful and friendly. Other staff were friendly.

Thank SnowBrian
