B&B Alfio Tomaselli
Ranked #6 of 38 Nicolosi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2013

At 200 yards from the tiny hill that is what remains from the vulcano that destroyed Catania in the 17th century, and close to the road going up the mountain, this B&B brings you as close at being pampered as is possible. Big, clean and pleasant rooms (there is even a self-catering appartment concealed under the roof) are not the only thing thatmakes it attractive - that is mrs. Pina's wonderful breakfast with all kind of fruit, cakes, charcuterie and croissants. Name it and if it's not there she'll bring it tomorrow. And of course she knows the town, the places where to go or how to leave your car in the city. The only thing that makes this house less than perfect is a madwoman a couple of houses away. But maybe that belongs to a small community...

Our 2nd stay was just as good as our 1st. The friendliest most helpful owners. They will do anything to make your holiday perfect. The breakfast is super with local produce and home baking. Great for visiting Etna and Catania. A home from home.

We stayed in this beautiful B&B for 3 nights with our 3 children. The apartment was very nice,clean and comfortable. Pina and her husband Alfio are very kind and helpful. She prepared us a very good breakfast every morning with delicious croissants and jam she made herself. Pina waited for us although we arrived late on our first night and gave us coffee,tea and juice. On the other hand Alfio was extremely nice too. He told my husband to put our car in his garage and was very helpful when we asked for some information. The location is very good especially if you want to explore the Etna and its surroundings. The price is reasonable and would love to stay again.

I cannot recommend this place enough. The rooms were beautiful and warm (which was so perfect after a night out in the rain) and the hosts are super kind and helpful. They made an INCREDIBLE breakfast spread for us in the morning (with super rich coffee) and even drove us to the centre so we could catch the bus up to Etna. They were ready to help us with any question and gave us great advice for places to see and things to do. The very reasonable price was well worth it for this place.

We stayed for 2 nights in mid December with our two teenage sons. We wanted to explore Etna and the surrounds for a day or two. This b & b is comfortable, very clean and most importantly run by the wonderful Pina who does prepare a lovely breakfast for you each day. Her homemade jams are very good and her coffee will put hairs on you chest! The location is handy to a local green grocer and a short walk into the centre of town, 5 minutes ~. Pina supplied us with a good local book about Etna and surrounds which was very good. Although Pina's English is limited, we had no trouble understanding each other. Great value for money. Would happily stay again. Keep up the great work Pina.

Thanks to Pina our landing was very comfortable. Our top appartment was clean, spacious and well equiped. Shower is not too comfortable with babies or small children.
Pina makes very nice breakfast, including coffee, bread, chees, ham, local vegetables, eggs and more. We even got small souveniers on our departure.
A great home-base for southern Etna touring.

Thanks Pina!
