This restaurants offers a wide range of pizzas and all are amazing! Strongly recommend the local mushrooms (funghi dei boschi and funghi porchini). The pizza il truffolo is amazing! The place has no English menu, but whatever you choose is amazing!

A varied choice of delicious Italian pizza. Fast and efficient service with friendly staff although extremely busy every day. Surroundings original with different sayings painted on the walls. We did not book but were served in no time.

This surprisingly large restaurant was only a third to a quarter full mid week, but still had a nice low key ambience as clientele ( nearly all Italian) were seated in one area. The menu has literally dozens and dozens of pizza choices, which brings up the first problem. Our watier come twice within the first 5-10 min to take... More

Sicilian atmosphere, excellent pizza (large). Probably the best pizza I've had in Catania so far. We went there with friends and the service was fast (they use handhelds), the food was delicious (antipasti and pizza). Good local wine.

To be 100% sincere, I would say the pizza base was a little bit too soft, but that will surely not deter me from returning at the first opportunity! My favourite pizza was their... More
