This was the best meal we've had in Siciliy during the past week. We ordered the cheese and cured meet to start with. The plate is full of fresh cheese and charcuterie for more than two people. It comes with the gnocco fritto which was kind of like a salty fried dough. It was freshly made and it was delicious. We also ordered pasta norma and sea food plate, which has grilled swordfish, red prawn, squid and vegetables. I usually go with a meat/seafood dish whenever I eat out, but pasta norma was over my expectation. It's a classic sicilian dish with eggplant and cheese and it was amazing! The grilled swordfish was also really good, very tender but also had the chewy taste that swordfish has. The meal was fantastic. We were stuff at the end of the meal but the owner was so nice that he gave us a sample of the pistachio pasta with red prawn to try. The dish was amazing and I will definitely come back to try the full portion. Last but not least, the food is very well priced given the value you got! The overall experience was fantastic and I highly recommend it!

We had probably the best pasta during our week long Sicilia trip in this small osteria. It was open on Christmas day!

Stoped here only for desert. We had chocolate lava cake and canolli, as offered by a waiter and we really enjoyed it! And prosecco was absolutely wonderful! I planned to come for a dinner but just didn't managed it on other days.. hope to come again in Catania and this lovely restaurant

..it would taste like Sleto's food! My senses were blown. Just what I wanted to experience - sheer freshness of local ingriedents married in taste sensation! I could say I chose this and that but I didn't, as maitre Daniele directed me beginning to end, even on the wine choice of a novello that swirled of warmth and soft aromas that simply danced with the pistacho present in my pasta dish. I ate a prawns and pistacho pasta dish which could have been gritty/dry, easily. Instead, the main man in the kitchen sent me love on a plate! It was perfect. Smooth, fresh, absolutely delicious. Cherry tomatoes that did not overpower the tone of the dish, simply supported it. I normally eat pasta very quickly - not this one. I didn't want it to end and the abundance on the plate lavished me. The atmosphere was spot on with hints of soft music in the background, this place is an overall smooth operator in the midst of Catania's bustling centre. The staff centric and attentive. Now, I was accompanied by my son, who opted for pizza. Sheer goodness! The dough? Perfection! Fluffy, light, delicious! Of course I tasted it! The toppings simply continued the high quality standards. I couldn't handle much more and Daniele steered me to finish with their ricotta cannolo and I thought I'd find a common standard there, at least. I was wrong! This was the best choice and fluffiest worked ricotta you could find, it had me reach for the spoon so I could savour it alone too. The shell, just sublime. How do they do it? Absolute Sicilian food porn.
