I went for dinner with my family recently. I am a great fun of pizza and a amateur baker myself. I would suggest you walk down the road to FUD or to Sazi e Sani. Il Sale has been a nice pizzeria for a long time. Nowadays, it really needs a renovation both in style and quality of food offered.... More

This place was recommended to us by the excellent desk staff at the Plaza Hotel. They did the booking for this and I recommend that you get your hotel to book for you because if you do you will probably get one of the favoured tables which are on the boardwalk in the very narrow long street in central Catania...

They tried to bring the main course while we were still eating the antipasti... If you are looking for a good quality fast food then this place is for... More

Innovative food. Good presentation. We had the antripasto e ravioli fuori la norma. Perfect taste and well done. Bit too salty for our taste. Service is in line with our expectations. Unfortunately, white wine was warm. We got a bucket of ice, but still not good enough.

Found this restaurant via Google Maps and it was absolutely brilliant. The food, wine and Beer all locally sourced - and all first class. Will probably come back again tomorrow!

I just wondered around looking for place to have dinner. I found Il sale art cafe from tiny alley. Their menu looked very interesting. I took antipasto and primi piatto. There were many wines by glass, great for solo traveller! Waiters were always ready to help me, for my choices etc. Food was excellent. The antipasto plate had many cheeses... More

This is a great restaurant with superb food and wonderful staff. Our first night was absolutely perfect. the second night we arrived a bit before they opened and the beginning was rough, but that is because the staff was rushed. The food is great and the wine is superb. I highly recommend this.
