This place was recommended by a local but we weren’t impressed with the food (It was cold and the sausage was raw.) or the service (We felt rushed). We had a reservations and the wait staff seemed to be very confused by our presence. This...More

First advice: do not go there on Sunday between 13/1430 without booking or get ready for 45 min wait. The place is incredibly popular with local families. The food is good (it cant be excellent due to the size and the fast pace) and it...More

Dropped in on the off chance of a table, when you see a queue outside it’s always a good sign. We were sat quickly but waited a little while for menus. The menu was extensive with something for everyone. We settled in the usual buffet...More

Wonderful food and service at this restaurant which is also reasonably priced. 5 of us walked in at 3.30 do lunch and despite the fact the kitchen was closing we had great antipasti and delicious grilled fish. Very nice service too.

We ate here 2 times on our stay in Catania. It has a wonderful outdoor area in the summer. It gets packed with locals and tourists so a reservation is recommended. Plenty of traditional choices either meat or fish. Great desserts too. The cost was...More

Food was great and came with generous portion. We ordered some grilled horse meat and steak and a set without knowing it came in 4 courses and was surprised with the portion they serve. The seafood risotto and mussels were both very nice.
