“The place to eat meat”

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 we were initially undecided. The antipasti selection is excellent, really super yummy, all of it - taste bud explosion! Then the meat came and it was just delicious, really amazing - but we gave a minus point for the stone cold plates which meant it was cold in 5 minutes. We had a half liter of wine, a dessert and a digestif and it came to just over 30 Euros - a very reasonable price in our minds. We would highly recommend (but please warm the plates).

Very tasty food, good variety of pasta, seafood and meat, nice local wine. The pasta was average, but the specialty is the meat anyway - a must try. We enjoyed it twice. The biggest let down were the waiters - nervous with foreigners and seemingly much more caring for locals.

The restaurant is situated in a beautiful historical part of Catania in Piazza Frederico di Svevia. The staff is amazing and the owner himself is an awesome person. The quality of food is to die for and I would recommend this place to anyone. The traditional Sicilian antipasti here at Artu is delicious and will have you craving for more. You just have to try it for yourself. A must try in my top 3 places to eat in Catania, Italy.

During our stay in Catania July 2017, we ended up going to this restaurant five times.
At first we went for Burgers, as the review of those where great. But later, we managed to go test the entire menu during our stay, including a couple of horse dishes (area around Ursino Castle is famous for serving horse). Most of the staff doesn't speak English, but that didn't stop them of being as helpful as possible. The quality of the food, compared to the prices on this restaurant, makes this restaurant the best value for money experience in Catania (as far as i consider) .
Absolute recomend this place, both for couples, family's and large groups.
