The staff was attentive and friendly. We had pizzas and raviolis which were all very good. The portions were huge. It was off the main street on a small street of outside restaurants. I was a great location and good food.

This restaurant was recommended by hotel. Just off Main Street, small steer full of restaurants. We had pasta & salad, really tasty & light. Lovely bottle of local wine. Good value, worth a visit.

We enjoyed the dinner at Il Sale during our first evening in Catania. The food is very tasty with large servings. The only disadvantage is the waiting time of 30-40 minute waiting time if you come between 20-00 and 21-30.

Good atmosphere and good for this cafe with a little terrace on the street. I recommend to chose the terrace, because the street is lively and without cars. The food was good, especially the beef filet and the foccacia. Very nice people and good level...More
