Nice bistro. The pasta was good and it was not expensive. Little strange was drinking from the plastic cups, but the beer was served in glass.

Lovely restaurant in Catania. All the pasta is freshly made and the owner is super friendly and helpful. Everything tasted amazing and the service was quick.

I need everyone looking at this review to skip all of these words for a moment and go down to the pictures to look at the green slice of pie. That is a pistachio and white chocolate ice cream pie. And that is the reason...that I can no longer eat any other pie. Also, giant plates of pasta and a smiling local man who recommended dishes and the one pie to ruin them all.More

The food was terrible, I ordered tortellini with prosciutto. The sauce was not even cooked and had a watery texture. The tortellini was overcooked and the bacon that came with it had very bad quality. The menu also wasn’t available in English and no one...from the staff was speaking English. Every dish that I saw from the tables nearby was not fresh and seemed frozen. Don’t ruin your dinner, pick something else.More

We went there to have some lunch. We ordered some tortellini panna e prosciutto and pizza. Both dishes were tasty and the pizza waaaas big! We paid 13 EUR only! Highly recommend the place.

This place will divide people. It is a very simple local restaurant serving home style food cheaply. The service is simple. You can see they do deliveries too. Lots of the other customers look like true locals. The bruscheta was delicious. My carbonara wasnt as...expected - the egg was more like scrambled egg but I think this is how they prepare it from the other reviews. The pizzas are massive. Dont come here if you want an extra special meal while on holiday. The decor is ultra simple... Come if you want a cheap fast simple meal and you are in the area. It isnt worth travelling here. My hotel was v close by.More

Pesto not fresh and most certainly not home made. Very thick and tasteless spaghetti. Cotelette di carne: more breadcrumb than meat and than I put it kindly. The only fresh dish was the very basic salad.

Don’t make the mistake of passing over this restaurant. It’s a small canteen looking place but the food is delicious. Best place we ate at in the whole of Sicily!!!!!

We had an apartment up the road from this place and we were so glad we stopped there one afternoon. The food is incredibly well priced and the portions are good. We had pizza and calzones which were huge! I'd recommend popping into this place...if you are passing by.More

We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman and he explained completely how to go about ordering from the counter. There was so much food to choose from and all of it looked genuinely homemade. My husband chose the pasta forno, I had the lasagne...and we shared the baked potatoes. It was so good we couldn’t believe it. The place is not glamorous but you can’t beat the food, service and price - all that with two drinks cost us €12!!!!More

This pizza place was very close to our hotel so we gave it a go! Being a Friday night it was pretty busy and full of family’s enjoying an evening out. We managed to get one of the last tables. We weren’t waiting long for...our pizzas and they were pretty tasty, washed down with half a litre of wine for under twenty euro is definitely good value in my books.More

We were there for dinner, it's fast, cheap and good service. If you're looking for something quick with no frill, I do recommend it. Not a place to go if you're looking for seafood though.
