We were tired of pasta & seafood. Artu’s steak selection was just what we wanted. We both ordered the thin cut steak, a half liter of house wine, and the side dish buffet. The sides were all very good. The total cost was @ 25...More

We followed the reviews and, wanting to simply local meat dishes, opted to dine here. We sat inside (end November), which was cool and the interior is a bit like an igloo. Super friendly welcome, and an excellent recommendation to share a mixed platter as...More

When I went to Catania, I've went here several times. Not only did they serve the best hamburgers in the world (really!), but they also have very good wine, nice meat rolls and very good service. I would recommend this to everyone!

If you are looking for typical Catania Food... That's the Right Place. Everything was delicious... Horse Meat is the Best in Town, and their "Involtini" with many different condiments are Unique. For sure I will come back.
