Decently priced imaginative food (no pizza here!) in a tasteful setting with young waitstaff. Given the size of the portions you may want to—for once—indulge in more than one #piatto#. - Recommended.

This restaurant is just a short walk from via etna. Not the best location along a busy road, but the food and the staff are excellent. Not to pricy, not cheap, but just right compared to the quality of food. Good selection of wines. Some...More

The restaurant is very nice and quiet. The service is excellent and the food is great (maybe a bit salty). Local wine is good too. Not very high priced. Very good value overall.

Both the food and service were impeccable. The entire staff was helpful, made it a great night. They allowed my daughter's well behaved dog to stay with us outside. Not too high priced, and well worth every euro.
