My partner and I stumbled across this place by accident today. As other reviewers have said it felt like we were in nonnas kitchen. I wish we were here longer so I could work my way through the menu. Highly recommend

This is a typical trattoria where the husband cooks and the wife waits on the tables. Food is tasty and VERY reasonably priced. Located in the center of Catania just one block off Via Etnae.

It was quite difficult finding an authentic (non touristy) restaurant in Catania and then I stumbled upon La Pigna Verde. The food was really delicious, service attentive and just like sitting in somebody's front room! Excellent local house wine and all great value for money.

We ate at La Pigna Verde Trattoria several times while in Catania. The owners were always attentive and the service was excellent. The food was authentic Sicilian food prepared as if you were in their home. We had a variety of delicous dishes.
