Good restaurant, nice food, nice ambience, reasonable service (although I'd agree with others that the Sicilian people do not seem to be the warmest or mist welcoming!) We enjoyed our food.

The food was so nice that we returned for a second dinner. On the first night we had Maccheroni and Spagghetti al Mare and on the second night we both had Pizza. Service is quick and friendly and we would not hesitate to go back again.

This was one of the most unfriendly waitresses i ever had to met. There are hardly any restaurants were i felt that much unwelcome. Considering that there are plenty other restaurants that offer the same quality of food and a nice scenic view at Etna i would rather choose one them.

Very good pasta and affordable house wine for lunch on the terrace; pasta with sausage sauce was cooked to perfection and it's worth saving some room for the tiramisu. Service was prompt and the atmosphere nice and relaxed, very good value for a fresh and straightforward menu in the heart of Castelmola

View on the top floor balcony overlooking the church steeple. Stunning. Food and service excellent. Only one down side cover charge. But on the whole excellent value for money and quality of food. Would recommend

Our 3rd night in Italy and our worst meal. The lady who runs it was unsmiling and brusque even though we tried some basic Italian. Another table was given oils/balsamic with their bread but not us. The food came in decent time and was freshly prepared but my son's lamb chops were small and oily and my husband's ravioli was... More
