We had several courses and everything was excellent. The atmosphere is delightful as it is filled with Sicilian ceramics. Would definitely go back next time in Catania.

We ate in the courtyard, lovely atmosphere and refreshingly quiet, well away from the street noise although very close to main thoroughfares. Friendly staff who spoke English but let us stumble in Italian! Delicious steaks. Our only grumble was that they had no milk for...More
