This cozy restaurant is very close to our hotel, we went there for dinner to try their speciality, the pozzolo. The waitress was nice enough to explain to us that we can have 1 pozzolo for the both of us and each half can be a different item, keeping in mind we didn't speak the same language. We had half mushroom and half bresaola, it was a delicious pozzolo, highly recommended.

The pizzoli are very good. The best is the one with chicken and beer.

I expected an exceptional pizzolo with horse meat, since Catania is the "capital" of horse meat, but, unfortunately, was not that good.

The service was perfect.

Great double-layered pizzas - ours had Italian sausage and was delicious!! We had a good red wine with it, and it was very good value for money.

When you stop by the Pizzoleria you certainly wanna eat the pizzoli, either in a savory or sweet version if you have different types of cravings. Pizzoli are similar to a pizza but prepared with s layers of dough filled with typical products. I suggest you to try the Nostrano (with Mozzarella and Sicilian Sausage) or the one with Mozzarella, Sicilian Sausage and beets.

If you have still some space after the huge pizzollo you can definitely order the sweet version with nutella, or cream or strawberries or other energizing ingredients.

Big plus is also the location in Piazza Mazzini right in the middle of the historical Catania that simply worth the walk to the restaurant. You will find a seat although at late night. Definitely suggested.

Located in the historic centre of Catania a restaurant that serves Arabic style dishes, specializing in Pizzolli. Dough based with lots of lovely fresh vegetables. The staff werw friendly and quick. The wine was value for money.
