The food took forever to arrive even though only three tables were taken. The food is very average. Don't eat here

The food was very terrible. The pork was served rare, the roast potatoes were cold and tasteless. Rating 0

We stayed in Catania one week, and this restaurant became our haunt. We ate 5 - 6 times over the week. The staff is very friendly, and helpful. Yes, if the restaurant is full, you will have wait more. First time when we came here, we had to wait cca. 45 minutes, but it was totally worth it. The pasta... More

The "waitresses" were an mid age woman a teenager and a 6 years old girl, and they were unfriendly, not helpful and lazy, when we ask for the bill they just didn't react for... More

My husband and I visited on the strength of the girl handing out flyers seem to be very accommodating and friendly. The menu looked good. When we arrived, the waitress was less than helpful but we didn't think too much about it. However, we watched an entire table of local people have their 1st course, 2nd course and dessert before...

My wife and I visited a few days ago. The restaurant was barely full, yet our food took forever to arrive. When we complained about the wait, the plump, middle aged waitress took immediate offence and claimed we were to blame for the delay not them! We couldn't believe what we were hearing and asked for the bill (our food... More

Horrible experience . Two incredible things that I passed while I was there I took penne arrabiata I got spaghetti instead of penne in just napoletana sauce with no hint of chillies . Any way I asked for cheese so I put some taste to this horrible pasta and I got just as little as a spoon dry grease cheese... More

The restaurant serve lunch till 4pm, like the most in Sicily. If you are late, you can die of hunger and nobody serves you. The location is a simple trattoria, trying to tempt the clients with some mixed menus, like the fast food. It's very cheap but I don't reccomand them. Try to choose some decent sicilian food, you'll be... More
