This place has a fantastic atmosphere. Great outdoor seating under fairy lights. The presentation of the cocktails was brilliant, and they tasted delicious. They were really clued up about Gluten Free - the pizza was one of the best I’ve tasted! Would definitely recommend!

Description
A corner of goodness in the heart of the city. "Al Vicolo Pizza & Vino", near to the central Piazza Stesicoro, has won over many tourists and gourmands. The restaurant has a beautiful show with one of its rooms overlooking directly on the remains of the ancient Roman amphitheater. Pizzas are soft and crispy at the same time, so great that exit out of the pot: it's all merit of the sourdough - with a shutter speed ranging from 24 to 36 hours - and the high quality of flour used. Food, in fact, from seasonings to meat, are genuinely Sicilians. Al Vicolo Pizza & Wine isn't only pizzeria: in addition to the more traditional cuisine, the restaurant wanted to make a difference launching the "Cotoletteria". It's a kind of meat taken by the tradition of Milan and adapted to Catania's cooking: a chicken, veal or horse steak - always very large - used as the basis of a pizza, enriched with many toppings. You should try also "Insalapizza": a bowl of bread to compose freely with vegetables at your liking. Moreover there is a wide range of wines from the best wineries and craft beers of quality to accompany every meal. Even the most greedy will be satisfied: the restaurant offers wonderful desserts, such as homemade cheesecake, and in our "Daily menu" it's always changing. We wait for you every night, including Monday, from 19 until 1 am, in via del Colosseo 5 .
