Don't miss it!! It was one of the best dinners I have ever had. From the wine to the dessert everything was perfect. I went there for the fish but the past or salad were perfect. If you go to Catania is a must.

Atmosphere feels like an old cellar as you sit surrounded by bottles of wines, ranging from cheap to affordable to exorbitant! The food is very good and pasta cooked to perfection! We were there for lunch and it was quite empty so not quite sure...More

The atmosphere is good. The menu is vast but the actual availability is limited. The food is average-. The service is almost non existent. Just no reason to eat here.

Lovely atmosphere, menu was impressive and portion sizes more than ample however had to be reminded about the soft drinks, didn't have any ice and the meat although beautifully cooked was on the tough side.

Ate here recently with a group of work colleagues one of whom ordered for us. Most incredible raw fish starter, some fantastic sea urchin pasta and ink squid pasta. Others had dessert which looked equally good!

This well known restaurant is located in the centre of Catania, near the Piazza del Duomo. The food was first class, especially the antipastos, and the service was excellent. The restaurant was just opening when we arrived and they welcomed us warmly. Despite the fact...More

We loved this restaurant. Attentive service. Great fish (will I ever have better swordfish?). We were first ones in the restaurant (come on Italians, dinner at 9?) and our waiter couldn't have been nicer. Good wine recommendation. We would absolutely go back. Also good value.
