We came across Pepe Nero via the Michelin guide, and we were not disappointed. Great food, excellent wines and a pistachio gelato to die for. Friendly and helpful staff.

This place is a Oasis in a very nice neighborhood in Catania. Very decent. Nice decoration. Huge selection of Italian food, good met cuts, Japanese food, awesome pizzas and of course, and spectacular cellar with pretty reasonable prices. Don't miss the pizzas. They are just great.

We opted for various different antipasti which were really delicious. Desserts are to die for, wish I had more room.
